AMH2010 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She was very clear in her teaching; nothing ever made me go "Wait, huh?" Easy pop quizzes help your grade out a lot. She has a passion for what she teaches and makes history (my least favorite subject) interesting.

She's very nice and you don't need the book at all just use the website. She gives study guides for the midterm and final which makes it hard not to get an A. You HAVE to go to class by the way. The papers are pretty easy too. Overall very easy class she makes history actually sound interesting. Take her before anyone else

Dr. Mitchell-Cook is a wonderful professor! You definitely need to attend class because she does pop quizzes on things that you learned that day. They certainly help your grade. She is very passionate about what she teaches. Utilize her office hours when writing papers because she will help you soo much. I would definitely recommend her to anyone!

Tough, fair, thorough and enthusiastic. Dr. Mitchell-Cook expects a lot but gives students the tools to achieve at a high level. It was a challenging course, but I enjoyed every minute of it.

Amy has a real passion for the maritime profession and the history of the sea. IF you want a class learning about pirates and battles then this is not for you. If you want to learn about America's place on the seas and what our ancestors had to endure and what they accomplished then sign up for it.

AMH4991 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

She's amazing and one of my fav. teachers ever. She is so nice and understanding and really cares about her students. I had a lot of bad luck and lost someone very close to me this semester and had to miss some classes which most of your grade is participation. She took the time to talk to me about it and worked it out with me so I could still pass the class. Don't stress about notes just listen to the discussion. No tests, 5 response papers, and a 10-12 pg research paper. You won't regret it

AMH1101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She's a fantasic teacher. Very helpful and straight forward. She tells you exactly what she wants and how. She's very fair and I'd recommend her for any body and all classes she teaches I've taken her twice and loved both experiences.

Dr. Mitchell-Cook is indeed a great teacher, but don't be fooled--work. I took a 6 week online course, and started out average as writing in historical style is the opposite of my discipline's. Ask what she wants from you and she'll get right back.Online was all from the book. Pulled out a B+ by nailing the last half and lots emails. Good though.

Dr.Mitchell-Cook was really great. Never read from the book and still got an A. 3 response papers and a research paper, but overall a great teacher. Although she doesn't pass out a sign in sheet, all her quizzes are done in class and you can't make them up usually, also her notes are given in class ONLY which make up her tests.

AMH6990 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Grad reading seminar. Great reading list covers one book each week w/ one page paper. Presentations with 3 page papers and paper defense. Also 20 page research paper req'd. Dr Cook is very even handed and expects discussion from grad students. If you can critically read and write you will do well in her class. Start 20 page paper research early!
