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

The only advice I can give you with this teacher is to get out while you still can. I took him and barely got a B, where a few of my friends are having to retake the course.

2111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: C+

Very hard and not clear on the material he wants you to know. He stands in front of the class and rambles the whole class. It's a mixture of the info you need to know and stories. The test are essay style. He is a very harsh grader. Very nice man but bad professor.

US Hist 2111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B

My favorite professor. If you don't want a challenge as a student and just want to take an easy path in college don't take the class. His class is challenging. He is very engaging, knows the information very well, and teaches with great enthusiasm. I'm a better student because of his class.

HIST 2111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: A

Even though I do not particularly like history, Dr. Whittemore made the subject interesting. His tests are essays over concepts rather than multiple choice questions over facts, so you have to study for this class, not just memorize dates and such. I enjoyed the class, but most people in my class hated him, so it all depends on your own preference.

Hist 2111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

aweful class. hard to pass. he is a straight lecturer and essay questions for test type of person. he gives points on talking in class but you no one says anything which hurts your grade and he says this often. he grades essay test off of other students. so if someone is doing great in the class then your score will be less.

Avoid if you want passing grade. Tests and quiz questions are not taught in class. It is like going to church on Sunday but everyday with this class.

Hist2111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Lets put it this way, this is a publicly funded college and as such is subject to the separation of church and state. Not for this guy though, which is odd because i thought it was a History class, not a Sunday sermon. Compares everyone to god, therefore you wont get an A, ever, because your not God.

Incredibly Smart. He really knows what he's talking about. It's really important to take good notes and know them. His only tests are all essays, no multiple choice. Part of your grade is coming to class, not being tardy, and participating and asking questions. He loves a good question. Act like you want to be there and he'll grade you easy.

HIST3170 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I took Appalachian History the first time he ever taught it at North Georgia (as far as I know). He is very knowledgeable and passionate on the subject, and I found my thirst for knowledge of Appalachian History insatiable. The workload is what you would expect from upper level history, with essay tests and presentations. Great class!

HIST2111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I took his class back in the spring. He provided a challenging course. I barely made it out with an A. He expects you to really know the material, not regurgitate it back out like in a multiple choice or short answer test. There were a few quizzes, but the course was mainly graded on the 2 essay exams and a paper.

Dr. Whittemore was very clear with what he wanted us to do, and he was fair with his grading. The reason the other people on here are griping is because the are unorganized, irresponsible freshman. This is college, kids, not the arcade. Either get used to Professors expecting you to work, or quit wasting your parents money, and drop out.

Do not take this class if you want a good grade!! I love history and have been a good student all my life, but this guys class is really hurting me. I will probably barely make it out of the class with a C, and I've never made a C in my life. Nobody has any idea what he talks about or what he wants on tests, papers, etc. Good luck to future stuents

HIST2111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Does not give A's because they are only for extraordinary people. The highest you can make is a B pretty much, and that's only if you're really good. He doesn't test, he just makes you write long essays as midterm and final. He grades essays super strict. All over the place in lectures. Unorganized. Just avoid him if you want your GPA good still.

This guy teaches tough..He doesnt give A's because he believes "A's are for extraordinary people and there aren't that many ordinary people." After he said this in his class, half of them dropped. The best grade you can basically get in this class is a B..and that B wont be easy either, heck not even a C will be easy..Good luck if you got him.

this dude is tough. doesnt give a's because "an A is for an extraordinary person, and i dont believe there are many extraordinary people" you will work hard to get a B. he is all over the place in his lectures, better write every word he says. is nice enough to give a study guide, but very tough grader. teaches class like an upper level HIST course
