"Would take again" "Respected by students" "Skip class? You won't pass."

I heard positive review about this professor and they were right. he was amazing and to think I was bad at history. he made me think differently by the way he taught it. Sure his class required alot of reading but it doesn't have to be from a text book. any source to history will work. if you learn better from a story-telling manner, then take him.

1301 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

Lots and Lots of reading. A few discussion boards, three exams, chapter quizes and one writing assignment. You will read a chapter and then take a 5 question - 5 minute quiz. Take lots of notes for his test. I would take his class again.

"Respected by students" "Participation matters" "Skip class? You won't pass."

Seriously, one of my favorite professors by far. I heard good things about him before taking his class and they weren't wrong. Normally an all short answer test would be hard but the way he gives his lectures it's pretty spot on with the tests. Take good notes and read the chapters (just an overview is good) and you'll do great. Sad it ended.

"Respected by students" "Tests? Not many" "Tough Grader"

Says you need no book; you do-he tests over material not covered in class. Tests are short answer, so you better take notes. This is all fine, except that his method of grading papers is arbitrary and not specified. He also doesn't read them thoroughly. You can get an A, but there's too much seemingly random chance involved for me to recommend him.

"Amazing lectures" "Hilarious" "Would take again"

LOVED HIM. His lectures are more like him telling a story, hes very interesting and easy to understand. He takes a quiz every Monday about the past lectures the week before. easy quizzes- as long as you were in class you will make an a. only has 3 tests and he uses the same quiz questions on his tests. super easy as long as you go to class!:)

Hist-2301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I loved him. I am an A student, but made a B in his class. His tests are fill in the blank, so you learn the material. Don't take him if you are looking for a blow off class. You MUST attend class. DO take him if you want to learn in a story telling fashion. I was so sad to see the class end. Favorite professor by far. I took him for Hist 1 and 2.

Best Professor I have had yet. Knows his stuff, and there is never a dull moment in his class. I'm taking 2302 this semester. You write two semi-short papers, then 3 tests. No final!

Isn't the easiest teacher, but if you show up and pay attention to events and people you will be fine. His test are open ended so you have some wiggle room but you will need to study and ready from the book a little to get an A on his tests.

This professor is absolutely amazing. Not only is he passionate about the subject, he is passionate about his students. He is willing to help and work with you if you also put in the effort. I highly recommend that you take his class. I wish that he taught more than just 1301 and 1302.

Took his class and enjoyed it. He knows his material and makes it all entertaining where you will remember it. A recorder would be helpful on somedays you might forget to write something. Gives quizzes first class each week but aren't too hard and prepare you for the tests. I plan on taking him for 1302 and advise you to take him as well.

THIS IS THE BEST PROFESSOR YOU WILL EVER HAVE! He tells you History like it's a story. Make sure you come to class and BE SURE to take great notes. If you aren't doing too good go talk to Him and Snaples will help you out if he sees that you're trying. It's hard to fail his class if you are paying attention, attending class, and taking good notes.

FANTASTIC! He makes the lectures so easy to follow. Make sure to take good notes and attend class regularly, he has quizzes every other class time (only like 5 easy questions). I never once opened my history book and still got a high B in the class. He's great!
