Comment:
I had Sarah in 1995. She inspired me with her stories. I was inspired to backpack through Europe, became a history teacher (which was my goal), and am now a middle school principal. I still remember Sarahs class and the impact she had on me because of her high expectations for learning. We need more Sarah Wileys in education!

Sarah is a great professor. Her lectures are very informative, and you need to take good notes. Study the notes and do the homework properly you should do well. Reality is, you need to out in work to do good in this class. You can't get away will doing nothing. People hate her because you actually need to put in the work. So put in the work.

I really enjoyed Sarah as a professor. Ive always liked history so the class was enjoyable to me. If you are taking this as an easy A, I would reconsider. Not horribly difficult but she is very particular with how she likes her information presented. The class is all lecture and the tests are long and lecture intensive.

I took this class online thinking it would be an online class but it wasn't online at all. Second week in she made us come to Delta for a mandatory orientation and if you failed to show up you would be dropped. All tests are taken in the testing center and there are a ton. Ask for feedback she'll be rude, don't ask for feedback you'll be lost.

Comment:
Sarah Wiley's lectures seemed very informative and have details that most histories teachers just gloss over nowadays. However, she is very brutal and demanding of your school time. I came in wanting to enjoy a history class to expand my college experience but all i got was a tough lecture class with no chances for slip-ups in homework and tests.

Comment:
Sarah was honestly one of the worst, if not the worst professor Ive ever had. From her overloading on homework, to her constant, way too quick lecturing, in which she expected you to catch every detail, to her straight up rude demeanor, I would NEVER recommend her, and Im thankful for anyone taking history that shes soon retiring.

It is great for future students that Sarah is retiring. She is the worst instructor I've ever had, hands down. I now have a PhD in History and want all to know she is how I don't design my class. What she did as an instructor I do the opposite.

Comment:
Doesn't take questions during lectures, rambles on. Difficult exams. 4 throughout the semester(short answer, chronology, IDs and essay). Chronology is quite difficult, list of 30-40 events & you have to find when they were, then take a quiz the following week & won't know if you were right or wrong on hw. Expects too much. Will help if you need it.

Comment:
Sarah was enthusiastic about history, but expected way too much from her students. Homework packets were literally 15 - 25 pages long per packet and you had to complete one every week. Tests were hard. They were all short answer and essay questions and no multiple choice. I love history and am actually minoring in it, but I hated this class.

Sarah is by far the best professor I've ever had! She has amazing lectures and you feel like you learned so much at the end of the semester. There are assignments that can take a long time to finish. The exams really do take three hours but they are so fulfilling if you pay attention and study. I truly loved this class and highly recommend 10/10.

Comment:
I didn't listen to the reviews on Sarah and I wish I would've. I would not recommend this class to anyone. She is very condescending when asked questions, and will refuse to answer if she already covered the topic. Also her tests are extremely long, and admits it takes students at least 3 hours to complete them, which it did.

Comment:
Worst Teacher ever, her class is mainly a lecture class. She is very fast pace through her lectures and doesn't like it when you ask question during her lectures. she starts to get really annoyed and rude if there are lots of question and has to spend a little extra time on something to further explain.

Comment:
Sarah's Early American History class is amazing. If you're a Hamilton fan, you are in for a treat. I really enjoyed this course. Her lectures were very interesting and there is a lot of homework but if you put in the work, it's not that bad. 10/10 would recommend if you are willing to work for a grade. This class prepares you for university well.

Sarah is one of my favorite professors. Her class is lecture heavy and there is a lot of work, but you learn SO much. If you copy over your notes and review, the exams are easy. She is a wonderful lady and I would recommend her class to anyone.

Took this class because I needed the credits and figured that it sounded very interesting, as I am really interested in history. Unfortunately this class was not enjoyable at all. Sarah is extremely unreasonable when it comes to expectations and how she grades. I'm not one to complain, but this class was extremely painful.

Sarah was amazing in the passion and preparation that she put in her lectures. Don't take this class if you are aiming to just slide by. She challenges you to do your best, truly understand the material, and participate. She was the best professor I ever had.

Assignments for the online class are between 10 and 15 pages when completed and typed out and there are a lot of them. You must know ALL the information from every assignment to expect to get a good grade. 10 out of 10 would not recommend.

Wouldn't recommend taking her classes. She assigns too much homework, as if she is your only class. If you didn't take notes the way she wanted them, you're marked down points. She wants her opinionated version of historical dates, rather than the ones you remember from highschool. Miss class, you'll be dropped. Buy a recorder, lecture heavy..

This was one of the worst history classes I've ever had to take, this class made me lose any interest in history that I had. Even with recording her lectures you didn't get the necessary information for her quizzes or exams and asking her to slow down did nothing for how fast and sporadic her lectures were. I would avoid her at all costs

Lecture only class. Very strict on attendance, you miss a day, you miss a ton. Uninteresting reading, decently heavy homework load.
