Comment:
Professor Anbinder is a great professor. He definitely likes to give students a hard time and can be rude, but he really knows what he is doing. The class is broken down into 3 exams and 1 essay. If you go to class and pay attention, there is no reason you shouldn't do well.

3 tests and a final paper. Lectures are great, but he doesn't post lecture slides online, so don't miss class. Tests were graded fairly, but papers are graded hard - he lets you bring your essays to him for feedback before they're due though. Anbinder is retiring at the end of this year, so if you can get into his class semester, do it.

Lectures were interesting, he is clearly very passionate about the subject. He said he has never given more that 2 A's in a semester - this class is easy to pass but not easy to ace. If you want an A you need to read the book but if you're happy with a B+ you can skip them if you go to class. Go to his office hours if you do badly, it helps so much

Anbinder's lectures are really interesting as it feels like he's telling a story. I didn't crack a book the whole semester, but was still able to get a B+ because I didn't miss a single class. He doesn't post powerpoints online. 3 exams, 25% of your grade for each and one 7-10 page paper worth 25%. I took the class for the great professor though.

I LOVED this class. His lectures are phenomena!! the Transitions and the topics he covers are flawless. The way the tests are structure ensures that they are both easy and that you are actually learning the info. I learned a monumental amount in this class and loved every minute. Anbinder is so passionate and truly cares about each student

It doesn't matter what class you take with Anbinder, just TAKE it! He is the best professor I have ever had at GW! He gives great feedback on papers, which really helped with my writing. If you need help with anything, just go to his office hours. There is a ton of reading for his classes, but his classes are worth it!

3 exams and a final paper. His lectures feel like he's telling a story. They are a bit dry but the subject is interesting. DO NOT MISS CLASS. he doesn't post the powerpoints online. I never once opened the book but i went to every class so I was able to get at least a B+. Go to his office hours before exams so he knows you are putting in effort.

Dr. Anbinder is an incredible professor. He can be a little intimidating at first because he is a straight shooter and doesn't bs his students. However, he's a great lecturer and presents the material in a clear and concise way. DO NOT SKIP CLASS. Information on the lectures will be on the exam. And try to keep up with the readings as well.

Anbinder is a once in a life time prof who will change your life. The books he assigns are interesting and worth the read. The class very hard but he wants his students to do well and is very accessible outside of class. He helps you become an amazing writing and you'll never be bored in class. You're lucky if you get to have a class with him.

This class can change you as a person. Maybe a more stressed out person but a better historian. A class worth taking no matter your major if you're able to put in the time and effort, which it requires a lot of. Of course, there are times when there is slack but don't you dare let your guard down to this class or you'll read 300 pages in one night.

Although history is not my major, I absolutely loved this class. Professor Anbinder really made this class interesting at all points of the civil war. He can grade a bit tough on your exams and paper, but still fair on marks. Very helpful in office hours, highly recommend going to them especially before exams

I would recommend Professor Anbinder to anyone who wants to take a history class and really learn. You do have to put the work in if you want the grade, but it isn't too bad. If you don't read, you won't do good on the tests. Attending lecture REALLY helps! If you have any questions, go to his office hours and he'll help you! A very enjoyable class

Tyler is one of the coolest professors I've ever had and coolest people in general. His class is relatively difficult but he makes himself extremely accessible. You can tell that he wants all of us to succeed. The way he taught made it easy to form connections between everything in the Civil War era and it was highly fascinating. Take his class!!

He's a very solid history professor. His lectures are interesting, and he really does care about his students. No need to read the insane amount he assigns. Just go to class and take good notes and you'll end up with at least a B. The only grades are 3 tests and a paper. Tests aren't as bad as he makes them out to be. Paper is graded fair but harsh

Tyler knows what he is talking about and is passionate about it. You will learn a lot. However, be prepared to MEMORIZE everything. His tests are basically just spitting words back on a piece of paper. He gives good feedback on papers, though. You can still get a B without reading the assigned books. Shouldn't have taken his as a freshman though.

I am convinced Tyler is the best professor on campus. His lectures are heavy but he teaches in a way that makes it very interesting. He will also give extension on the one paper for the semester. Tests are not that bad, I never read and still got high B's on the tests. No final or midterm just extended versions of his tests. I love him/the class!!!

Anbinder is a great professor who has interesting lectures and is extremely passionate about his studies. His office hours are really helpful because he gets to know you better and you can clarify what exactly he's looking for in papers, etc. There's a lot of assigned reading but you don't really need to do it to get a good grade. MUST ATTEND CLASS

Anbinder is a good professor. Be prepared to read a lot. Also, his tests are where you have to do a lot of writing (IDs and their significance). There are three tests and one paper. Don't skip class. Take notes bc his powerpoint are presented in a way that he'll only have bullet points on the slides if you absolutely need to know them for the test

Comment:
Probably the most knowledgeable scholar on nineteenth century American that GW has to offer. Anbinder knows his Jacksonia, Antebellum, Civil War, Reconstruction, and more like the back of his hand. I've never met a teacher so knowledgeable who takes so much time to care for his students. Be prepared to work, but I'd highly recommend HIST 2312.

Comment:
Professor Anbinder is a good lecturer. It is clear he really loves what he teaches, and his interest is inspirational. However he is an unnecessarily hard grader. He treats his students like grade school kids requiring them to follow his exact ways for every assignment. He is helpful outside of class, but he is very curt. Not exactly friendly.
