"Inspirational" "Hilarious" "Participation matters"

Great Professor, pushes hard facts as lectures flows very easy. His power points are real and in your face. Take notes and read your book Take home test are great especially when he gives you a week to turn them in via email Microsoft Word. Group projects are good just do your work and keep your groups motivated Spring 2014

HIST17A Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

My second time taking his class, he's just such an entertaining professor. His lectures are very thorough and fun, I've taken boring history professors before and he's NOT that kind of professor. He grades papers very fairly, quizzes are easy, no mid-term, final is multiple choice and an in class essay.

History 17 A Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

One of the most animated teachers I've ever had, Christopher Jackson will make the dullest moments of US History into a fun and engaging experience. He seems to be able to speak multiple languages and has hilarious accents and impersonations. His class isn't the easiest, but it is set up in a way that encourages you to pass. TAKE A CLASS WITH HIM!!

HIST 17C Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

This guy is just delightful. Huge breadth of knowledge, gives examples of American culture including music, and his Nixon accent is funny every time. He had answers to all of my questions and I found myself doing extra research on my own. Great class!

Professor Jackson is really nice and funny. He makes Western Civic fun and alive because he knows he stuff really well and wants the best for his students. As long as you listen to his lecture and do everything, you'll get an A. However,if you want an easy A, this is not the class.

Great prof. He is funny and tries really hard to keep the class awake. He sings and mimic how people talked in those days. Earning an A is hard but possible if you put in some effort.

He is a very passionate teacher and loves everything about history. He dosen't mind if students fall asleep in class but, he HATES cell phones. Sometimes it is hard to stay awake in class but, if you like history, this is the professor for you.
