If you can't commit to attending class and reading the book don't take her. If you're serious about learning history - and learning about life - do it. She's really hard and she really pushes you but if you do the work you won't be sorry.

She made me fall in love with history again. Her class is incredibly interesting and informative. She is very motivational and truly wants her students to learn about the US and its past. If you come to class and pay attention, do the study guides and at least read some of the textbook, you will most likely get an A and be very satisfied. LOVE HER.

too strict,rigid,and unpleasant teacher who treats students like 1st graders.She keeps student from falling asleep by constantly asking questions during the entire class sessions, so make sure you are prepared to answer every class!text book-mandatory, attendance and participation -mandatory too. I got an A but didn't enjoy class. not recommended!

She REALLY cares about her students, but if you don't do the reading she'll nail you with a pop quiz. She wants you to take education seriously - she says that all the time. If you don't, don't take her - if you do, do!

Awesome teacher. Very helpful and thorough. No curve balls really thrown. If you do what she says you will do more than fine. I learned a ton in this class, but I also put in the work.

Ditto comment regarding this course being brutal in the summer!!! If you are looking for a walk in the park take someone else. If you want to actually learn something you won't find a better class or a better instructor. Just be warned - what the syllabus says is for real - she cuts no slack.

She was very invested in her subject, she was like a walking documentary knowing all kinds of crazy details. There is a term paper on an biography but she gives almost the entire semester to finish it with plenty of help. it is very necessary to do the reading but if you do its an easy A. She was a great teacher and I looked forward to her class

She is a great teacher. Passionate and makes you think. Use the study guide she gives you! Thats what I did and I got an A. All she tests on is the study guide.

Best teacher I've had in college. She really loves her job and is tough for a reason. She is very helpful if you need some clarifying and mainly has group discussions and is lenient on written work. Best class yet!

Brutal 8 week class. She keeps it interesting though. attendance is MANDATORY!! READ and show up to class and you'll do fine. all quizzes & tests are short answers/essays so you really have to know your stuff and keep up. one research paper on a biography. cool lady but dont expect to get ANY leniency out of her, she wont give you the time of day

by far the best teacher ive had in my 5 years of college. she’s real tough (rules, keeping up with the readings, etc) but she’s well worth it. if youre looking for an easy A find someone else. if you’re looking to learn history take her... every class is like listening to a history channel documentary.

She is very strict and likes to listen to herself talk. Other than short answers from the class she does all of the talking and although she says she wants to hear your opinion there is rarely any time to give it, but she is passionate about History and it shows. She gives you a study guide, but alot of it is hard to find in the book.

She is very strict on the rules, so don't miss many classes. All the tests and quizzes are short answer which helps because she will give partial credit. Just know what is being asked and she will give full credit. Going over the study guide for each chapter will get you an A.

I took HST 201, 202 from Wirtz at a community college and then went on to take some history courses at a four year university. Wirtz hands down was the best and out shined the professors. Wirtz is passionate about US history and expects a lot from her students, but is reasonable and very clear in her expectations. I am grateful for her classes.

I can honestly say that I was blessed to have Beverly as an instructor. I took all three of her US History classes at PCC. Beverly not only makes history interesting, but also relevant. In doing so she also inspires you to be an informed, proactive student and citizen. Do yourself a favor!

A great teacher! She will provoke your intellect and help you to build your critical thinking skills. Her classes aren't exactly easy, but she will give you all the necessary tools and assistance needed for you to not only pass her class, but to master the material. Take on of her classes and you'll be back for more! I took every class she tought!
