World History Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A
"Would take again" "Gives good feedback" "Get ready to read"

A lot of reading and writing, but then again it is a history class. Five quizzes, three tests, and three papers on supplemental readings. The papers are due throughout the semester but the quizzes and tests aren't due till the end of the semester so you can pace yourself.

HIST2331 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I had her online summer 1 and well I got an A. I skimmed through the last two books and still got two A's for the essays. Pretty easy class but if you have another class that is hard you may struggle. For summer 1 we could take the exams only once but it wasn't due until last day of class. Quizzes were unlimited tries and was due last day of class.

HIST2331 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Prof is not easy but not hard either. She basically gives you everything you need in the lectures. take good notes and you should be fine. outside readings are very important and a must for the essay questions so read those.

HIST2331 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Her test come from her lecture, which makes attendance mandatory. Unless you can get some one to make copies of their notes for you. Finding that person should be the forst task of the first day.

HIST2331 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I took her for CIVIL THRU THE CENTURIES and I really enjoyed her class. I got an A! Read the books she tells you and the articles. All her test come directly from her notes, so you can't miss. She laughs at her funny history comments and she makes you feel like you're a part of a learning experience you can't miss. I highly recomend this class!

Stick to the class notes and you'll be ok. Alot of outside non-textbook reading required. If you like to read, go for it. Very understanding teacher, but not a push over.

Very interesting professor, enthusiastic about the topic. Her tests are very easy, read some of the books or wait for the review. Young and very attractive.Recomend any of her classes, Early Modern Europe, Women History Studies.
