Comment:
He's a really good professor! At this point in his life his ability to project his words is limited so sit in the front of the class close to him. His course is very interesting. Soft spoken but a real good prof. Easy class if you study your notes. Piece of advice, don't copy from Wikipedia on his papers, he's the only prof I ever had that noticed.

Comment:
Sweet guy. Likes to tell stories, and can lecture for a long time- basically the whole class. Did show a couple videos which were interesting. If you are a visual learner, this class will be VERY challenging, since it is based on lecture with little guidelines. Recommend to do a couple bigger research papers, rather than many smaller ones.

His class and tests are entirely lecture based. He does show the occasional video though. Overall, a good teacher but very old and set in his ways about his class. Tests are all essay based. To be successful, don't skip review sessions.

Comment:
I had Dr Howard for 2 classes (African Hist and Latin American Hist). He was one of the best professors I've ever had. He is extremely smart, very nice, and his classes are fairly easy. I learned so much from him. If I could've taken more classes with him I would've, but I wasn't a history major. If you truly want to learn take a class with him.

Comment:
I really love upper level classes with him because he is so smart. But he does tend to talk fast so you are taking notes the entire time. Tests are no big deal, and he is very helpful if you have a question on a paper

Just because he's smart doesn't make him a good teacher. He doesn't know how to teach the class in an interesting way. Tests are the biggest problem, you have no clue what to study for!

Just because you made it into college doesn't mean you're smart enough to appreciate how much there is to learn from smart professors like Dr. Howard. If you find Dr. Howard boring then you probably can't think your way out of an unlocked car. The guy knows a lot.

A very smart man who knows everything there is to know about, well, everything. I think the people who don't like him are just envious because they're stupid and he's not. Highly recommended.
