The class was a lot harder than what needed to be for a general course. However, he is a very nice professor and gives many extra credit opportunities. I made an A- in the class, but this is because I studied for HOURS before each test, did a lot of extra credit, and redid many assignments. It's doable, but challenging.

You don’t have to go to class to do well. Just be sure to read the book because his questions are from the test bank. 50 pts of each test are based on an essay question, which usually isn’t too hard. The Document Analyses & Critical Thinking assignments are a chance to increase your grade. Overall, he is a decent teacher, but a really nice man.

Great professor! Grades strictly on papers but Midterm and Final are take home essay tests which are not as stressful as in class tests. Really loves what he teaches, take his class if you can.

Dr. Fritz is an extremely helpful and approachable professor. Attendance is not mandatory and everything is posted on D2L. There is 1 critical analysis due towards the end of Nov., and 5 document analyses due throughout the course. These things make up 40% of your grade, so do them! They are designed to help your grade! I recommend Fritz for HIST.

Attendance was not mandatory but his class was very interesting. He is very knowledgeable and very interested in his students actually learning. The tests were all take home and I used my book on them and pulled through with a B. I would take his class again!

This was the worst class I had all semester. He was the worst teacher I had. He never helped with anything. All he does is talk and talk.

All he does is ramble and talk in circles. Test are semi ok very tricky. I learned more from reading my own book then i did attending his lectures. You have 6 assignments that he grades completely unfair. Trying to go talk to him about your grade is completely worthless though b/c he doesn't care! DO NOT TAKE! Worst class i had this semester.

One of the worst classes i had this semester. Only about 1/4 of the class ever even showed up. BORING. Tests were pretty easy. He just stands up there and talks and talks and you have no idea what he is ever talking about so really hard to take good notes. Try taking someone else if you can.

Dr. Fritz is an excellent teacher. You can tell he is really interested in the subjects he teaches. He is very fair and I felt his use of take home tests helped me learn the material better because I was not so worried about craming it all in.

Dr. Fritz is very well organized and a gifted orator. His lectures are always very engaging and I walked away with a stimulated mind. He is a bit critical on grading writing. However, he is an adept professor.

He is a good teacher, but his tests are so much different than his lectures. His two assignments are a MUST to making a good grade UNLESS you can make 100's on all of his tests (doubtful). But he is nice...
