GREAT teacher. The best History teacher I've ever had. I WANTED to go to his class every day I had it. I found myself looking forward to going to his class the moment I woke up. EXCELLENT! Too bad he's retiring.

hist155 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

He knows his stuff, everyday is interesting.. be prepared to laugh a lot, if you can get him-- GET HIM! Be ready to take notes, but it really isn't that bad.. it's like he's just telling a story of history. Look over your notes before tests and you'll get an A, easy.

Amer. Mili. His Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

For a man who has never served in our Armed Forces, it shows. He throws his personal beliefs out there and makes off the wall comments on key issues. He should pass the torch and start teaching Hippie 101.

Russian History Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Everyone should be required to take a class with him! He makes it so interesting and connects things in history that most people wouldn't see. He is also very funny/witty which helps you remember the information. He genuinly likes his students and wants them to do well.

American Hist. Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Frucht is by far the best teacher I ever had. He is very passionate about history and made learning so interesting that if I had not taken his class so late in my college career, I would have become a history teacher as opposed to a math teacher. I would not be half the teacher I am today if it were not for the influences of this man.

mil. history Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

AWESOME....makes you know just about everything and requires you to think critically. He is very knowledgable but is still approachable and helpful. Keeps class interesting and entertaining and basically makes you want to learn. Made me work but is still one of my favorites.

Am Hist Survey Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Don't have to memorize dates and names. Only need to understand why and what happened. Critical thinking is required. Best instructor ever. Very informative and applies history to current events so you can understand concepts. Highly reccommend him. 1 paper and 1 test required to pass course.

I don't recommend his class, because he sees it as his personal soap box to take all of his political opinions and shove them down your throat.

He doesn't really talk to you even if you talk to him. He knows his stuff but doesn't seem to like doing it.
