HIST128 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

Kraig is a cool guy - an old hippy who knows his history and genuinely cares about making the world a better place. The class can be boring at times, but the subject matter is interesting for the most part. Lots of reading, but I got a 3.9 skimming most of it - the quizzes get much easier as the quarter goes on as essay questions are more general.

HIST 137 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Great professor. Knows his stuff very well. Is organized schedule and follows textbook and also shares his own knowledge pertaining to each chapter. Lots of information. But was not an easy class at all. You must understand the material very well to earn a good grade in hi class. SO if you want to take an easy class. This is not the class for you.

Hist136 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Amazing professor. I needed to take a class to fill up ICS credits. I took his class thinking I can handle history. As a non english speaker it took me 3 weeks to be in the same path. He was amazing supportive encouraging not to quit the class. He's the best teacher for history to have. Take his class, you'll fall in love with history.

He is a great Professor. But be aware this is not an easy class. You really need to make sure you understand the concepts, read the textbook before class and do the journal assignments. Overall he is very intelligent and engaging. You can see he loves History and that he wants you to learn.

Prof.Schwartz has the teaching/lecturing thing down pat.It was difficult only having 50 mins for class because there was too much to cover. Engaging teacher, looks around and asks students questions. Genuinely great guy. Has some great stories about his time living on a commune.I also thank him for teaching about the Lincoln Brigade! Take his class

Wow I cannot say enough amazing things about this teacher. He literally made me fall in love with history and I hope one day he reads all of these great ratings and realizes how much we all love him. He's extremely intelligent and makes you laugh even when the topic breaks your heart. He is by far the best teacher I have ever had.

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

One of the best teachers i have ever had, without a doubt. Better than any teacher I had at the private expensive school I went to before. Never feels like he's talking "at" you; endlessly engaging, extremely knowledgeable, and often funny. A great human being and awesome teacher.

Craig is far and above the best hist. teacher I have ever had. He is endlessly knowledgeable in his field and very enthusiastic. The text we used was also great. This should be a mandatory class, it will change the way you view the world no matter what side of the isle you come from.

If you want a fun and interesting challenge, take a Dr. Schwartz history class. It's the closest thing at SCCC to a real University class. He makes you *gasp* read books! The first I've read at this college... You will write essays, read novels, engage in interesting conversations, see new view points,hey.. sort of what college should be!

One of my top 3 professors out of high school. I've only had 5 so far, but I'm sure he'll remain near the top.

Dr. Schwartz was one of the best professors I have had. He was able to get me to look at history in a whole new way (and actually find it fun and interesting, which is crazy because I am normally not a fan of history). Take his class!!! You'll love it and be happy you did! He really puts the world into perspective.

How could you not like Schwartz!? He is a really nice guy, laid back, and funny. He loves what he teaches, and knows all about history. I learned a lot from his course and intend to take another history class of his. Would recommend him highly.

Great teacher - I can say nothing bad about someone who can make a required gen. ed. credit interesting. Definitely cares a lot about the subject and the required books were very good and relevant. If you need WA state history, definitely take his class.

My favorite instructor during my time at SCCC. I honestly wish someone could have told me about this man before I started my run of history courses. A remarkable instructor that actually cares about you. The work load is light and the tests are straight forward so you have no excuse. Highly recommended.

HISTSECT Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Extremely knowledgeable. Goes deeper than textbooks, helps the class to understand the real meanings behind events in US history. Opinionated, which I like, because I agree with his opinions. Semi-weekly tests and plenty of assignments to keep you busy, but not too much more than the average high school work load. Definitely more interesting though
