HIST 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Do the work, you'll do well. Be lazy or expect a gut course, you'll get the low grade you deserve.

HIST 102 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This is not a history class, it's an English composition class. This is for you if you like writing. You'll get lots of essay assignments & quizzes. She is very cut, dry, and has high standards. This class will discourage you big time if you're not really good at her class. Trust me, I am very competitive and not LAZY!

hist 209 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: B+

Booooo, I don't recommend her. She is extremely annul about grammar and "proper modern English". Every other week two quizzes on two chapters and s really time consuming essay/discussion post/not fun stuff. I don't even feel like I'm learning, just trying to keep up. NOT recommend if you have other classes!

Hist 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

Prof Acree is the best--she is a consummate intellectual and really knows her history! The negative comments about her on RMP are from the too many lazy-assed students who should simply quit school and work in food service where their grandiose, self-inflated anti-intellectual attitudes will go far. Prof Acree is the best!

History 101 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

I'm not sure how her rating went up to a 2.5. When I last checked she was at a 1.5. This was a very difficult class. I do not recommend and all of those who have responded negatively I agree with you. When being graded you can see the class scores and medians. I barely got my "A" and really had to work. the avg. grade was a "D". Do not take!

HIST 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Tough teacher to take but her lectures are THE BEST; explains concepts & events very well. Textbook & supplementary reading are absolute musts, she assigns discussion/participation grades on them. Lots of essays & scant multiple choice quizzes; you HAVE to be on your game. Wish I did better in her class, late assignments were my grade's downfall.

HIST 106 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Had assignments that were art history related, not western civilization related. No rhyme or reason to her grading, and will not provide an answer when asked about specifics of why a grade was received. I would recommend avoiding this professor, as chances are that you will not like the outcome.

HIST 106 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Being a fan of history I thought this would be a great class. I was very wrong. The professor, when asked a question did nothing to answer the question asked, only answered in generalities. Tests were the worst I've ever taken. Written in a very convoluted manner and multiple answers fit the question.

hist 102 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B

This teacher was really upsetting to me. This is a very demanding online class with two quizzes and an essay due every two weeks.Her grading on the quizzes was very tough and then she does not give comments on why she graded the way she did. Also the way she words questions on the quizzes is super confusing. Do not take this class!
