Comment:
Sometimes the material was a bit dry, but Dr. Storch knew his stuff and expected you too. He not only taught the material but also would put it into issues relatable today. The tests were hard but he did allow extra credit work. Classes would probably be hard for a non-HIST but they were really informative.

Comment:
IF you are not a history major and you are not a girl, avoid this man. Somebody once told me that he thinks that guy should work harder than girl - -' so he seems to be nicer to girls than guy. not helpful at all when asked for help no study guide not clear on what's going to be on the test. most of the time mumble his lecture. no technology used.

Comment:
Great guy. I took Greek history and grade was based on three tests (and quizzes-but those points counted for the tests.) Goes over A LOT of material which makes the class hard to study for but Storch seems to genuinely love teaching, which is important.

Comment:
You will either love Storch or hate him. Despite what some of the earlier reviewers say, he is very clear. The problem is that he gives you so much material it becomes hard to study for. His Roman classes are fun (he goes comically off topic), but he seemed almost bitter during his Greek history class. The Roman classes are more interesting anyway.

Comment:
Roman Republic and Roman Empire....both great classes. You will learn a great deal from this man if you want to. Take notes. The test are easy if you just review the notes. All of his lectures are based on his own notes and the quizzes on source readings outside of class. The study of ancient history is a challenge sometimes even for other historians, but follow his lead and he will show you the way. Because of him I went from an ANCS minor to a major. I took all of his classes and enjoyed each one.

Comment:
I took this class following advice from a friend...and soon after classes started i realized this class would be the bane of my existence. He raves about how no one complains about his grading method, but I have yet to recieve above a 60 on a test, and I study. Save yourself the trouble, take something with Laurie instead

Comment:
Good professor. He is prone to go (rather comically) off topic. He is also known to give you free-bes on tests just because someone made him mad. For example, he told us one of the test questions because someone left class 2 minutes early. He's fun, but his tests are murder.

i became an historian IN SPITE of this man - awful awful prof in most every respect. his sources were outdated, his grading capricious, and his attitude w/history majors left much to be desired. as a serious stident i found his class to be a complete waste of time.

Great, great, great. He has a good sense of humor, and the assigned readings are mostly fun (there is a lot of it, though). He can mumble sometimes, and an early-morning class can be hard to stay awake through, but the exams are decently easy if you read and take good notes. Fun guy, fun class.
