Really sweet and intelligent woman. She is kind and very sweet and is a bad ass. Don't piss her off or her little old French lady will come out but she's really smart and kind and helpful. You get use to her accent so don't worry about it. Highly recommend taking this class.

Joelle is tough, but she HAS to be. 401/495 is the European CAPSTONE course, this is what all undergrads need to take in order to graduate. If you do the reading, and stick to the Chicago Manual of Style like your Bible, you can potentially ace this course. Do the research, you NEED to.

She is VERY intimidating and tough, she outright says by the end you will probably hate her. BUT she is very knowledgeable, understanding, and she will kick your butt into shape for the senior capstone. She makes you work for your grade, and in the end the pride you have in its completion is worth it.

Very strict teacher, but can be funny at times. Never come late, she puts you on the spot. Definitely go to lectures because that's where you get all the notes that you'll need for the tests. Recitations aren't hard as long as you read in advance.

Pretty good teacher but accent is hard to understand. Not helpful when it comes to preparing for the exams and so her class is NOT easy. Kind of treats you like you've already had prior background knowledge in medieval history but has so much love for it. Recitations are hard, mark my words. But this class is pretty cool and you do learn so much.

I've taken every class Joelle offers. She teaches things you'd never learn in other classes, and gives you more info than you'd think possible. The 300's are writing intensive, but the grading is very fair, and she's ADORABLE. My favorite professor ever, by far.

Lots of writing, and she straight out tells you this. I don't really like her approach about the renaissance. She focuses on social, political, and economic history. I was looking more for cultural history. She is a VERY FAIR grader though. I have written some bad reports and i got 9/10's on them.

she is really interested in what she does and her french accent is sweet. she has a lot of work but its worth while especially if you are a history major. her grading isn't too bad either. she kept my attention for every class and she is adorable (good style).

Definitely not an easy class for a 100 level class so don't expect it will be. If you listen in lecture and put the time into do the readings you will do fine and get an A. If you blow things off you will fail. JRK is by far one of the best professors I have had. If you LOVE medieval history, take this class you will love it.

Her attitude is completely rude, however she knows her material although you'll get a biased teaching of Medieval Europe.

Very engaged with her subject. She's French..so any rudeness isn't really rudeness..it's just cultural. I totally agree with the other comments: She's really hot for any age!
