"Assignments galore" "Participation matters" "Better Like Group Projects"

Dr. Reggenia Williams is a passionate instructor with little to no presentation or organizational skills. We had assignments due almost every class and she was very backed up in grading. I learned very little in her class and struggled to keep up with all the work. Some online, some written, some in class, etc. Very unorganized. Lots of videos.

HIS 216 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Regennia was a nice person, but she was also unorganized much of the time. She spent more time going over class instructions rather than the actual material. The subject and associated quizzes and tests were easy enough, but most of the work I did was out of class. Regennia's class was often chaotic and unsuitable for getting any work done.

Had her for Afr Am History, a class I think you have to have a passion for if you want to take. With that being said many of my classmates hated this class and her, but I think she was a very good instructor. Essays and exams are given but the paragraphs have to be a par. Easy class and you'll get a lot out of it if you're interested in teh subject

HIS400 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Horrible. This was my capstone class and I learned nothing. She was constantly changing where we would meet for class. She cannot explain what she wants and doesn't fully listen to the questions you ask regarding assignments. Lectures had nothing to do with the class and she almost always ended up on unrelated tangents. Due dates are very confusing

Horrible horrible teacher. She's very rude and closed minded. She wants things done a certain way and cannot explain how she wants it done. Very spacey and Can not stay on topic. I had to go to the head of the history department to get anything done in this class.

HIS 216 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Worst teacher i've had so far at CSU. Her lectures are utterly pointless. Attendance is 10% of the grade and she considers a student absent if they show up 5 minutes late, or leave before she's finished with the lecture - even if class time is over. The only thing that saved me was the extra credit. She is rude, and not helpful at all.

HIS216 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Her lectures are pointless. 3 essays and 3 tests, but she'll drop one of each. She makes everyone in the class contribute to the study guides, which is the only thing that the tests are based off of. Just go to class and do the work and study and you'll get an A!! She's passionate about this stuff but she always reminds you that she's got a P.hd

Very snappy. Her lectures were useless. She's very passionate about the topic. Expect to recieve an exam or in-class essay two weeks after the day it was taken. Very unorganized.

Enthusiastic professor! Expect a lot of writing, but as long as you show effort and interest in the course material, you will do well.

This was my first class I took online and I am happy that it was so easy. There are 3 tests and 4 essays with the lowest score dropped. I would recommend this class for those interested in history.

What a nasty professor, she doesn't make sense, is not organized, ignored people she doesn't like (being a woman and african american is the only way to get her attention) and thinks she's so much better than the rest of the dept. Cannot stand her, every minute spent in her class was a waste!!

Probably the worst teacher I have ever had. Very unorganized and never taught anything we had to learn everything ourselves. Do yourself a favor and stay away from this joke of a teacher.

Dr. Williams is a great teacher to take. I took African American History since 1877 and it was my first semester of college and what an easy A her class was. I missed class a lot but mainly there are three exams, pass the first two than you don't have to take the final (third exam). six group projects sooo easy, and three in class essays drops lowe

All previous negative comments are founded on truth. Dr. Williams is about 10 mins late to class every day & condemns those who leave on time since she is never done lecturing when class is supposed to end. Her lectures have no direction or point; she only quotes from books/reads poems. She does not tie anything together comprehensively. AVOID HER!

Perpetually late, then got angry when you tried to leave on time. Gave assignments, then switched the requirements the day before they were due so you ALWAYS had last minute work. Lectured about nothing in particular, and going to class was a waste of time. The worst professor I've had.

horrible. she does not lecture, only rambles on about things unrelated to the class. useless in-class writing assignments rather than exams. final paper that she talks about every single day. i'm extremely dissapointed.

It's clear that she loves the subject, and when she stays on topic, it's fun to learn from her. She was generally on time, however, spent far too much time reviewing the syllabus and reviewing the project - every class.

She obviously has great knowledge on her subject BUT she is not skilled in conveying it. Want an A? Read and re-read the text because her lectures don't cover much on the test(I even told her this). Like others have said, she is late for every class a good 10 minutes or so. Also, she has a fondness for controversial leaders who dabbled in communism
