Clueless misinformation. when students point out after class she gets pissed. Told us she does not know the materal so looked it up on line before class.

Had her for two graduate courses. Tests way too easy. Needed only needed one credit to graduate. Unfortunately, she made no sense, said she got her information from the internet. Told some students in class she only had to give a c, had an A average and would still graduate with C. She is clueless and makes it up as she goes if she does.

For a writing intensive it was super easy. Doesn't care if ppl come to class or even sleep in class but if you miss 2 days at most you get an A on the final (10 pts.) Lets ppl turn stuff in almost whenever. I like history but she just made class EXTREMELY boring. Doesn't engage the class at all. Just talks.

Tests are very straight and easy. Also the easiest writing intensive class I have had. If you take 170W. Only 3 to 4 papers that are 2 to 3 pages long.

Honestly, the class was ridiculously easy. I brought a novel to read in every class since she can get pretty boring. She gave out a study guide for every test. Never paid attention and got an A.

This class is hands down the least interesting class I have ever taken. She no longer knows how to relate to students. If you only miss two class periods throughout the semester she gives you an automatic A on the final. Easy class but very dull.

Good person. Average Professor. The lectures are very badly organized. Too many videos. But She is always willing to help and she is very fair in terms of grading. A previous poster was correct: Greek was interesting. Roman, I learned nothing at all. Should be separate classes. Overall, could be better.

She makes you think. Don't expect her to sppon-feed you. She respects students who work hard and helps you see connections.

If you want to take this class, take it as writing intensive. Tests are essays but are very easy, we only write 5 total papers besides. Hanke is liberal, but I still enjoyed the information she presented, despite the fact that many students fell asleep every morning (8 AM class) Do your work and you'll do well. 92% = A She rounded me up :)

It gets a little long and boring sometimes, but she's really not a bad professor.

Is the reason why teachers should not be tenured. She is probably the most unspiring teacher I have ever had.

This person wants to write white males out of history.I don't really understand why as they are the only type of males that would tolerate her holding the position of influence that she has.She should move the Arab world or sub saharan Africa and see what kind of voice she would have.For a distorted Marxist view of history take this womans course.

This professor is very UNINSPIRING. If you have any passion for history at all do not take this instructor's course as it will drain it from you. Plays favorities. When this instructor chose to be a teacher she went down the wrong path. No good.

This person is not right for teaching.She is disorganized,lacks knowlegde of the subject matter, and is very biased against males.If your a female then your gender is a plus in this class.If one wanted to make an arguement to end tenure she is it.Women can do no wrong in her eyes.

I've had her in class and she is my history advisor, she is a great lady with a lot of passion and knowledge for what she does. She doesn't pretend to know it all but she helps you find the answers if you really want them. Pay attention take notes and you will have a great time with her.
