HS-118 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Pro Petty is great. He's an old school dude. I can guarantee you all the people that rated him low are terrible students. If you do the work and read the material and take notes you will get an A. He's pretty funny, witty, and definitely not politically correct. I plan on taking his other class next spring and I'm not even a History major!

HS 118 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Has no idea what he is doing. Most of the people in the class no more about sports than he does. It's all about baseball all he does is show videos about baseball in the early 1900's. terrible grader. Almost impossible to get an A

The videos he has you watching in the class are interesting and thought-provoking; that is, if you have a strong interest in sports. (Key Note: take very good notes when you're watching videos, *cough for "pop quizzes") Nice guy, has a sense of humor here and there. If you love sports, love learning about sports, then take this Class!

He knows the material well; very knowledgeable professor. He is a Tough grader, BUT he will help you (If you ask.. so always ASK!) he is strict on deadlines, so always be organized and punctual with assignments. His tests are ID's and essays. If you want a challenge, take him!

HS118 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This class isn't an easy A. For everyone complaing about Prof Petty they prob thought it was an easy A. You really have to read both text books and study a lot. Tests are ID's ex.) Joe Louis - then you write all you know about him. 2 research papers, no class on the days they are due. He is a really nice guy and will help you out if he can.

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

He is a nice guy who will help you when you need it. I had a research essay and he stayed after class with me to work on it. He gave the first part of the final take home and every test was open book except for the final in class. Take him if you can, but be on time and attentive

HS201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

His lectures are interesting, but he requires a lot of writing. 2 research papers plus several smaller papers in between. His tests are never multiple choice, but he doesn't require to remember dates either-wants you to remember the important aspects associated with the events. Not a bad teacher, but if you want an easy one then pick someone else.
