Comment:
Dr. Silverman is my favorite professor by far. I struggle at history, but he makes it very enjoyable. He gives extra credit when he is having a good day (and it's quite often). He truly cares for his students and is very aware of effort. To get a good grade in this class all you need to do is: try hard, show up to class, and be respectful.

Dr. Silverman is the best professor that I have ever had. He made history a fun experience for me. He is available outside of class whenever he is needed, and responds to email in a timely manner.

Gives a lot of extra credit and if you just work hard he will give you an A. His tests are really tough so if you show him your reading notes and go to tutoring he will help you out, he values hard work over numbers.

He says he will retire when he forgets what it is like to be in our spots and it shows. He jokes and gives us extra credit just for him having a good day. The reading is essential to earn a good grade on your own, but he takes into account tutoring and asking him for help before giving you a final grade. I wish I could take him for every class

Dr. Silverman is an amazing professor. In his class he lectures but they are far from boring, he is very funny. If you are respectful and pay attention in class you are bound to make an A or B. You will need to read for the test because he doesn't cover everything from the book. You also have to attend class because everyday it's something new.

Dr. Silverman is an amazing professor. He always started off our class with a joke which helped everyone loosen up. His lectures are very clear and he makes them very interesting. I am ready for him to teach another class that I need.

I really never read the assigned reading and still made a B in the class just from listening to his lectures and soaking everything in! So fortunate to have sailed on the SS Silverman during my time at Winthrop!! I'd take more of his upperlevels if I had more time.

This class is not easy but if you're not doing good you can go talk to him and he will suggest taking notes on the reading and showing him and I made a B in the class with a 60-70 average. He is VERY helpful and nice!

He is amazing! I took this class in Maymester and he made it so enjoyable! I found him to be easy to listen to and entertaining. He is passionate about history and he takes the time to personally get to know all of his students. I wish I had had the chance to take lots of other classes with him during my time at Winthrop. Take his class!

Dr Silverman is by far the best professor in the History Department. He genuinely cares about his students, and he will do anything he can to help you secure internships, get into grad school or really whatever you need. He is a tremendous lecturer and really does tell history like the story it is. On top of that he starts every class with a joke

He begins class with joke. Most are dirty but funny. He does a great job explaining the course material and makes history interesting. I missed a test day but he just counted my next text twice. Just make sure to read the book to pass his tests. Great guy.

I have now taken every course taught by Dr. Silverman. He is a wonderful professor but an even better person. Take his class seriously and you will be rewarded. He has an open door policy and is a great listener. Take advantage and it will certainly pay off! Dr. Silverman is brilliant!

Dr. Silverman is the BEST professor at Winthrop. Sure, you have to read the book and study for his tests, but he is extremely helpful. If I had the opportunity, I would take him for every history class.
