I hated having to take this core but he is very passionate about the material and actually makes it interesting. He is a very fair grader and is extremely helpful. There's a ton of reading, 1 position paper, 1 short presentation, a midterm, final, and periodic quizzes. As long as you keep up with the reading, you'll be ok.

This professor is great. He is very intelligent, and very enthusiastic.He has a clear voice. He gave quizzes every week, which were based both on the reading, and the lesson.There was a midterm, a final,a long paper, and a short presentation. The topic for the paper is very flexible, since he gives you like 20 topics to choose from.

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

I loved this professor. He is extremely passionate and enthusiastic about History. He knows this is a core class and does not demand that you know the most minute detail of events. The textbook we used was awful, but coming to class made it all the better. There are pop quizzes, a paper, and presentation - all of which are very simple.

I like him a lot. I feel like I was challenged and learned so much. He's a fair grader, he will give an A+ if you study hard.

He's quite a character and very charismatic about his field. The class is not difficult at all, but you MUST READ before coming to class because he quizzes quite often. The midterm and final easy. The research paper is given the first week of classes - and due two weeks before the last week. Grading is easy. He's very helpful and cool.

CC22 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

You WILL get quizzed in the beginning of every class on the reading assignments from both text book. He assigns a presentation and a 7 pg research paper or oral debate. The midterm and final are terribly long and in-depth. For a lower tier class it's way too serious and way too much work. Not recommended. He also rambles on and on and on...

great proffesor can be boring especially if you leanred the sutff before. the material is easy and so are his quizzes you can write anything in the ballpark and hell give you credit. attendance is mandatory every other class because quizzes are every other time you meet. alows tons of extra credsit for his midterm and final

He is nice, has time management issues but not too bad, does not keep up with the syllabus. He gives quizzes which you do not want to miss, he gives a research paper, a midterm and final. He grades fairly, make sure you read before class becuz thats is what the quizzes are about. Attendance is a must so that you don't miss the quizzes.apresentation

HISTcore Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I HATE HIM. He has NO life which explains why hes constantly giving assignments. He has nothing better to do than grade. TEN pop quizzes, 7 page final paper, midterm, final AND a presentation. He repeats the SAME stuff over again and cannot explain anything. He gives too much work for a CORE! He's SO annoying I hated looking at him. STAY AWAY!!

Ok yes I dont like history and I still dont, but going to his class made it better for me to understand. You will have to work hard for his class, there are about 10 quizzes, a position paper, midterm, final and a short presentation. He is a great professor has a great passion for history and he shows it. He offers a lot of help if you need it.

histcc Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

OK this is what you will get yourself into- 10 quizzes that have in depth questions and you only have like 3 minutes to answer, presentation, 5-7 page research paper (he's very strict on that), a midterm, and a final. He gives a lot of work, he expects a lot from you. He has a lot of passion for history, but he's still boring. recommended? no

1st, these comments mislead me. I hate history and going to his class didn't make it any better. I personally think he asks too much for a core class: Midterm, Final, like 10 Quizzes, a 2-3 min. presentation & 7-9 research paper. Are you serious? He's okay, doesn't check attendance, his passion for history is def. there, BUT just not for me.

The good thing about him is that his lectures are clear, but the price you'll pay is too high. You will be drowning in a sea of papers, tests, and exams for nothing. He will base your final grade in a surprise extra credit paper that he will mention only two weeks before the final exams. He will say it's not mandatory...
