HIST200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Took a class from Prof. Beinin a few years ago at SU so this is a late submission. Really impressed by his commitment to fact-based teaching and learning. Very objective and fair. Beinin's focus on facts and truths probably drives "Campus Watch" bonkers. I had to let-go of a lot of old illusions and disinformation, but learned a lot.

Beinin is a pretty good teacher. Though some say he is highly opinionated and that he is very biased but I disagree.

Contra the previous posting, Beinin IS totally ideological in that all of his lectures and discussions are designed to lead you to his conclusions. Just because he is well-versed in his facts doesn't make him any less a propagandist. Whatever he is, he's not an unbiased or fair-minded observer.

History 18N Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Joel Beinin's class was one of the most intense experiences of my life. It was definitely worth it. Beinin might be opinionated, but he is also extremely well-versed in his field. Ideologues can't back up their arguments with facts. Beinin does Not fall into this category. Website sucks though.

He really has no business teaching history--he's just an ideologue.
