Comment:
This professor wasn't the greatest. There is minimal interaction from him, and he takes forever to respond to emails. There is A LOT of reading so if you're looking for an easy A, take Jackson instead and save your GPA. His quizzes are challenging and the midterm was a shuffle of the quiz q's. Final was hard. I wouldn't recommend this professor.

this class wasn't impossible, but you do have to sound like you know what you're talking about. he comes off very impatient and even rude. didn't get any feedback on the large written assignment or any explanation as to why points were being deducted. TIP: submit discussion posts at around 10 the night its due to avoid his comments and challenges.

WORST CLASS EVER! Professor is RUDE and is way too hard on his students. He is constantly on Canvas trolling your responses and challenging your answers even when they are correct. He made multiple statements like "leave the questioning up to me" and "I need more" or "correct, but is that all you can provide" Do not bother emailing either.

Comment:
This is one of the worst courses I've taken in college so far. If you ever need clarification, the professor never helps. There is lots of reading, so take that into consideration before enrolling. One of the textbooks didn't really help. Also, discussions in this class felt more like a debate than a class discussion. Only take if you must.

I was surprised to see that a majority of these reviews have the same feelings about the Prof as I do. Tough grader, hardly any interaction from him, comes off rude, demanding, etc. Perhaps if the class was in person it could be better, but now? It is super difficult and information heavy.

Comment:
I wouldnt recommend taking this class, unless you need it for the general ed requirement. The course is very demanding. Very little professor interaction, and when asking for help the replies are very vague. Quizzes are challenging, so make sure you do a thorough reading. Final exam is nothing like what he told us to study. Not my favorite course.

Class is not for lazy peeps, be prepared to actually KNOW what you read or you won't pass tests. 16 discussions (2 per module), 8 tough tests, midterm is 100 questions in 100 min, final is 125 questions in 125 min; book report about 1500 wds. I do recommend taking his class; you'll learn a lot and the subject is very well taught and interesting.

Taking 6C rn and it's awesome! Yes, you must study hard but quizzes are absolutely fair. Do not let bad reviews fool you, don't miss out on an amazing class and prof! He will answer emails quickly and makes the discussions extremely interesting. Midterm was great, 100 m/c. I was hoping to take US hist with him in the spring but he teaches 6C again.

Easy Class. Very straight forward. one essay and long detailed tests that are lw easy. 8 quizzes that are relatively simple, vocal and dates. Do discussion post and a solid job on essay and its a guaranteed passing grade. *

This professor is great. He is extremely detailed and will help you understand the material if ask. I took his class once and did not pass (my own fault) because I just could not put in the time to do the work. His tests are very hard and take the whole 40 minutes to complete. I think it's a great class to prepare for college.

Though there is a lot of reading for this class, but as long as you put time into the class you'll be fine. He IS, however, a very tough grader.

This was a very interesting class! Assignments: 8 units, 2 forumsunit, 1 quizunit (HARD), midterm and final, and 1 paper. This class is a lot of work, but it's worth it. I have two tips: if you're taking two classes then take this one too, but don't overload, and MAKE A STUDY GUIDE WHILE READING (this will help you on forums, quizzes, and tests).

Do yourself a favor a do not take his class. You will regret it. This eastern asian history was an online class and without a doubt the hardest I've had yet. Not just hard but with the confusing, similar, weird Chinese names you better be able to memorize very well! Not nearly enough time on the quizzes. Required book was poorly written.

Amazingly difficult class. The professor was completely useless and sets unattainable goals. If you are bad with names or even remotely have a hard time comprehending reading do not take this class. If you get questions wrong on quizzes don't expect to ever be able to find correct answers whether from professor or from textbook.
