Govt-235 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A
"Tough Grader" "Pop quiz master" "Get ready to read"

6 pop quizzes throughout the semester based off of reading due that day. Unless you put the exact phrase he is looking for, you will not receive credit. Two hard exams, one cumulative final. Stops taking attendance after the first few classes. Always eager to teach and respond to questions. For a gen-ed its extremely hard work.

HonorCuba Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Great professor, knows everything. Class isn't hard until the millions of book readings catch up on you, you have to write your own book in essays for the tests, and write a very knowledgable paper on topics not throughly discussed in class. Great class, but you'll work your butt off.

Cuba000 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I had no background in Latin American studies and this class was incredible! LeoGrande is an amazing and funny lecturer and stimulates class discussion well. Main assignment was difficult but well worth the effort and prof feedback was above average. Fair grader and very helpful. Difficult to multitask in class because lectures were so interesting.

AMAZING. Great class that will engage history buffs, Latin American studies folks and IR/foreign policy and poli sci maniacs alike. He's a friendly, helpful, interactive prof who knows all there is to know about Cuba, and clearly loves teaching the class. You WON'T regret taking it.

Cuba Class Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: N/A Grade Received: N/A

Fair, balanced ideology. Makes you bust your ass, but it will be worth it. He is essentially a walking complete history of Cuba, and he knows how to handle a class.
