Expect to work your butt off in this class. You read the chapters and then quiz on them. The stuff on the quizzes are not things you would remember by just reading so you have to outline and even then you will do terrible on the quizzes. Shes no help at all. Rarely replies with something other than "check the syllabus."

If you are someone who just barely made it out of high school and in need of remediation, then Dr. Hagedorn?s class is not for you. She?s a real professor who expects her students to be able to read and write. I took the online version of her course and it was the best experience ever. Unlike many other professors who have students make discussi

The worst experience I've ever had with a teacher! She shouldn't be aloud to teach online. The first thing she stated to the class was that she doesn't think online teaching works, yet she teaches online. She will never get back with you and when she does she will make you feel like a complete idiot. She has a God complex and will let you know it.

She knows the topic, but often gave smart ass remarks when trying to clarify. I think she would make a good classroom teacher, but she is no good at online teaching.

You guys are wimps! I hadnt been in school for years and she isnt that bad. She expects you to debate in class, and know what youre talking about, and if that's so bad then maybe college isnt for you anyway. She's NOT the most helpful or clear, I'll give you that, but this isnt high school.

Dr. Hagedorn is a smart cookie. She is also a horrible online professor. No feedback. No advisement. She writes just "Check the syllabus" if you have a question. She expects online students to drop by campus a lot. I am filing a complaint with the Dean about Dr. Hagedorn. I've figured out why she left Princeton for a dinky community college.

If you are returning to school after 8 years, this is not the class for you. She's seems as if she's is harder on her online class students. There's 16 quizzes, 2 major test, and more. I had to drop this class. The quizzes are extremely hard. If you care about your GPA...Don't take her. She Sucks!!!

You should expect to work very hard in this class. She teaches entry level history at a mster program level. Constant rewrites on papers. No grade placed on papers until it is written to her level of expectation. You can't read text while she lectures. She totally freaks out when she see's someone chewing gum in her class.

Yeah, she's hard... She actually wants you to work so you can learn... What a concept. She's always there to help you, but she's not going to give you the answers. She wants you to think for yourself instead of reitterating what she says. She will never give you her personal opinion on how she feels about a topic, nor will she show it.

There is absolutely nothing good that I can say about this teacher or her teaching. If you are an A student or close to one, you could very well receive a D or an E in her class. If you care about your grades and work hard to keep a 3.5 or better, don't take her.

RUN!!!! If you know nothing about history this is not the class for you. It by far will not help you with the second part if you plan on taking another teacher so you gonna have to take her twice. She is cool but sometimes I think she is losing her mind. Stay as far away as you can from t his one if you want a good grade.

Only class in 7 semesters I have dropped. Unclear is an understatement. No one had any idea what was going on. She changed the rules constantly. Her lectures were about her house hunting efforts. She out and out said she didn't like our class because we were too confrontational. We just wanted some direction. Worst professor ever.

The more this professor is here, the more critical she gets. Still does not go from the book at all - doesn't even like you opening it during class. Revises papers over and over again, feels like she is trying to get you to rewrite the paper until it reads what she wants to read, not what you want to write. Most frustrating class yet.

Dr H is a very nice professor.As a person she was very caring and helped a lot. But she would't be specific at all in how she wanted her papers done. Her lectures were all over the place. She needs to try a different way of teaching history. But all in all not to bad, i mean it was a 8 o'clock class so i wasnt to awake most the time anyway

Dr. Hagedorn is very, very intellegent but sucks at teaching. Instead of using the books or lecturing in order she talks about randomn things and she made me dread the class. I loved history and had the highest grade in my his 121 class. i am dreading the exam. do not take this teacher!!!!

At the beginning of the semester I was very enthusiastic about her class but now I am very confused and she is not clear in her topics. she should focus a little bit more in the book to have a clear follow up. I have not learned since the middle of the semester.

Excellent teacher. Almost no homework(limited to about 3 very short papers and 1 two page research paper)Only test all semester was final exam which was only 2 discussion questions which she told us in advance. If your not good in history this is the teacher for you.
