HIS 121 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

She is a horrible teacher. She doesn't grade anything until the end of the semester so don't expect to have an idea of how you're doing until you come out either passing or failing. Her online final is ridiculous. "Two long essays" and you have no idea what they will be about to be prepared to memorize the entire book. Avoid her at all costs.

HIS 121 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Not a horrible Professor, she just makes it so much harder than it needs to be. She focuses a lot more on your writing skills than on the subject itself and she was not good at responding in timely manners either. Definitely not a good teacher to take for a basic US History course, at least online.

HIS 122 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: A

Dr. Hagedorn is a one of a kind teacher, she is all over the place in class but she is extremely helpful. As long as you show the effort she will ensure you do well in class. Her class readings are the most important she wants to know you understand the material and the text is just to guide, she loves it if you do outside research!

History is history not English or literature. If you want to write a lot of papers only for her to grade them at the end of the semester (so you will never know your grade, its just a surprise at the end of the semester) and tells you she didnt like your writing style be my guest. Be careful with the final too.

HIS 122 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I consider this class and classes I have taken with her to be absolutely amazing. As a history major myself I find her knowledge and willingness to be perfect. Take her class in person it is the only way you can truly appreciate her teaching style. She is willing to work with any and all students including ones that aren't in her class.

HIS 121 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: B-

She's decent. If you take really good notes, read everything you should, and don't procrastinate, you'll do fine. The textbook won't be discussed within the class. There were no tests, only three essays. The final is entirely from the textbook!

I took her on campus $ shes admitted she isnt a good teacher to take online but for lecture she's great! She really loves teaching & will help students she'll even help you edit you papers before there due. Wrote 3 papers and the final was two essay questions. That's all the work, very easy. I never did any of the required reading and still got a B

Will never, ever, ever take another class she teaches! I love history, but not the way she teaches. Saw her madness then liberated myself from her mentality of foolishness!

"LH" as she writes in email is NOT a good Online instructor. She has a syllabus to follow but contradicts herselfs in what is due for the assignments. The three books on TCC Bookstore, we only used 2 of them. The assgmnts require your thoughts & opinions but they are never up to par. DO NOT TAKE CLASS FROM HER! Wish I would have read reviews..
