Comment:
I loved this class. Dr. Dupre assigned very interesting readings, gave great feedback on assignments, and quickly responded to emails. Class discussions on the readings were also interesting and thought-provoking. I highly recommend this class. If you participate in discussions and apply his feedback to improve your writing, youll do well.

Due to the virus, things weren't as smooth as they have been in years past I'm sure. However, Dr. Dupre did his best to ensure student success and made sure to take the fact that we are now in an online class rather than in person. 4000 historiography is tough so make sure you pick a topic you care about!!!

Absolutely do NOT take this class. All lectures are mono toned and boring as can be, gets off on rants about specific topics for 30 minutes. Terrible hearing so expect to frequently be asked to repeat yourself and speak up. Had to buy 6 textbooks for 1 semester. Impossible to please on paper or written exams.

I took American Lives with Dupre. He is a great professor. The lectures are interesting and have everything you need to know for tests. Amount of reading was not horrible. Participate and go to class!

One of the only real professors at uncc who actually know how to teach a subject. Everything he says you should write down and use to your advantage for an A. 5 pop quizzes on easy readings 1-20 pages that are actually interesting and relevant.

Comment:
You can know all of your material on a test and show it, and still make a C. His lectures are boring, all over the place, and he tends to go on tangents about the smallest of details for 30 minutes. He's nice enough, but a professor I would absolutely never recommend.

You read the book, take notes in the discussion and write a paper 3-5 times. As long as you take good notes and write down his answers to questions and use them to boost your own writing you will be fine. I got 3 A's 2 C's and averaged out to an overall B. He's understanding with attendance if something happens to you or you need an exception.

Professor Dupre actually wants students to learn and does his best to make sure students have a good understanding of the lessons. Meet with him during office hours for help. Had 5 pop quizzes throughout the semester but they were easy as long as you read the assigned readings. Allows 5 absences. One of my favorite teachers at Charlotte

This class was kind of boring, all he did was lecture. He doesn't allow technology at all in his class and all his notes are on paper not online. The test are essay test and they can be hard, but he gives a study guide.

If youre a history major, take him. I loved his class. His lectures were always interesting and he likes class participation. Gives pop quizzes on readings so make sure you read what he assigns. He also gives study guides for exams. Exams are written response, not multiple choice so study well. Overall, awesome teacher.

Dupre is a great professor and very willing to help. He does not give many A's when grading tests, but if you make an effort to attend class, meet with him and do extra credit he will hep you out.

Much tougher grader than most I've encountered as a history major. Offers free points with things like reading journals, but makes you earn every point on tests. Didn't read? No chance of a good test grade without details from readings. Great lecturer and highly knowledgeable. Take if the subject matter will interest you enough to do the readings.

He is the best history teacher at UNCC, hands down. If you like history, you will love this class!!! Take good, detailed notes on what he is lecturing. Tests are essay based - no multiple choice but he is not a hard grader.

He is very specific on what's expected of you and you do have to take very detailed notes to do well on the test. However, if you read the required books and study enough it's an easy pass of a B or higher. Note: don't just write down names and dates - write down why stuff was important (that's what he tests on)

Very difficult course for a 1000 level class... However, Dr. Dupre was interesting and helpful when needed. His grading is very tough, but with extra credit offered, it's possible to have a high grade.

He is very mono-toned so if you take his class in the morning you will probably fall asleep, he teaches really good topics, however he expects you to know more than what he tought for his tests. He grades really tough, this class was harder than most 3000 level courses I have taken.

Dr.Dupre is one of a few professors not participating in EXCESSIVE GRADE INFLATION at UNCC.For that I give the man a COMMENDATION.You have to EARN an "A" here. Really brought out good topics, thought provoking, maybe as an older student I appreciated it more and not the "everyone gets an A, no matter what they hand in." Solid professor. US HISTORY
