HISt 320 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He is very good with explaining the material but makes this class more complicated than it needs to be. He has a set of online quizzes which are very hard to get a good grade on. They are hard to keep up with because of all the reading that is required in this class. He is also unclear about the term paper.

HIST 320 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Prof. Heningberg is a great guy, but lacks as a professor. I don't understand the structure nor the grading for his class and I think he makes it more complicated than needed. He makes you buy WAY too many textbooks and the study guides for his texts are horrible and don't prepare you at all.

A good teacher who understands what he is talking about and he enjoys talking about it. Don't let him intimidate you (shouldn't really even be intimidated). Do the work ahead when given. It'll help not stress you a lot.

HIST320 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He's very funny but his lectures were very long and boring and had nothing to do with barely anything on the tests. The study guides only consist of 4-6 questions which isn't even half of what's on the actual tests. So many books to read at once and you have a very long, boring paper to write. I liked him but NOT his teaching.

HIST320 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He's very nice&funny. The online quizes are extremely easy. You have A LOT of books to read&you will not do good without them. A lot of the material on the tests come from the books. His tests are extremely dfficult&very unorganized since you have so many books to read at once. His lectures have nothing to do with the tests. Pretty difficult tbh

He's a very strong professor, however, he flirts with academic usury by having a $250 book list (one he published himself) plus, if you do not buy the book new, you must buy an online portal for $50 (quite similar - d2l). I would say his teaching strengths are negated equally by his administrative weaknesses. This is a 4.0 student handing out a 2.0

This class actually convinced me to become a history major. Prof. Heningburg is extremely kind, accessible as a person and clear in in his lectures. It is extremely important to take copious notes.There is no homework, only a paper and exams.I have taken two of his classes and aced both of them.He teaches through lecture, film,and group discussion.

He was consistent with his expectations of students... study hard and learn your material, show up everyday, prepared, be proactive, and you'll pass. Don't do these things, and you'll be writing a bad review! Could've been a lot harder. He is fair, and honest, and I appreciate his class.

Great Teacher! Has an open door policy so students can go talk to him during office hours. His tests are very simple as long as you attend lecture and take good notes. I honestly just read over my class notes and got As on both tests. Also has a research paper and a final. No homework but online quizes which you can retake until you get them right.

histo0158 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

he was a great instructor very funny and humorous. but he was a bit to political. he used too many big words and tried to tell jokes that wernt always funny. he was real laid back though. but he could have been way more clearer when it came down to explaining things. probably would have passed then.

HIST320 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Class is easy if you attend and take notes. Minimal usage of books, so just purchase course compass with the e book in lieu of the hard back editions. He also requires a book that he wrote - just copy the required texts in the library. Interesting guy, interesting stories, very laid back.

Hist321 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

It's very easy to get an A because his tests are mostly based on his lectures. DO NOT buy the books. They're a waste of money and he NEVER uses the TWO textbooks (which each are worth $100). He's nice, but his teaching lacks. He's was very far behind and in the last 3 weeks we had to cram so much information because of him.

Simply absurd.He is a shock teacher,meaning he uses "crazy" facts to keep his students interested;yet you do not learn anything. There is no need to take this teacher. Funny?Sure. Friendly?Sure.Worth your time?No way!If you do take his course,do not buy the books.Just purchase the Course Compass key code, the books come with it. $300+ vs $25.

Very good teacher, good person to learn history from, he is clear on what he expects out of you. you will be writing papers quite a bit in his class. but it is worth it. make sure you do the required reading, if not you will fall behind in class. be prepared to read a lot, take notes, and write papers. overall he is funny, humorous.
