HIST 0861 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I would have to agree with the December 4th comment below. Waldstreicher simply lectures to the class that was often incoherent in understanding what point he was trying to make. Further, he did not look at us or ask for student participation, he simply lecture and made little eye contact.

HIST 0861 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

DO NOT take this professor! He is extremely scatterbrained and cannot speak a cohesive thought. Thought I could handle it but I would have failed if it wasn't for my TA being so helpful/an easy grader. This prof is a smart guy...just super hard to follow!

He is the greatest professor. The nicest man. Incredibly smart. He takes an interest in his students which is a rarity at Temple. If you have an interest in American history absolutely take one of his classes.

USHIS1011 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Brilliant professor. Extremely knowledgeable about U.S. history and puts a really interesting perspective that you don't get in high school on things. Having a professor who clearly loves the subject and knows so much about was great. If you're interested in history, I highly recommend.

HIST1101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

The content of the class was pretty interesting, but all he does is lecture, which sucks for anyone that cant sit through it. Overall, a pretty good professor though.

HIST3102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

very smart guy. class consists almost entirely of lectures with a very general outline on the overhead (which is incomprehensible without the explanation in the lecture), so you have to pay attention and take notes if you expect to understand what hes talking about. there is a lot of reading. i always felt rushed when taking his quizzes.

i didnt like him because he says "uh" way too much during his lectures. if he actually talked during the time he spent saying "uh," classes would end on time. weekly quizes were annoying and the TA i had was on a power trip
