Comment:
I found Dr. Edwards to be extremely disorganized- she seems like she never really knew what she was talking about and her lectures are VERY hard to follow. She goes off on a thousand tangents, does not give clear answers to questions, and also is a slow grader. You wont know how you're doing in the class until the end. Avoid if possible

Comment:
She's funny and likes to exaggerate. Kinda makes me think of the boomer version of a "quirky" girl because of the way she talks about some things being "totally crazy", but other than that she was pretty enjoyable. Recommendation: take notes. Her powerpoints are not that great so it's best to write down things while in class. Her quizzes are easy.

Her lectures are so hard to comprehend, she goes off topic all the time. If you ask a question during class, good luck. She rambles and forgets to answer your question. Grades solely based off midterm, one paper, and final. Doesn't cover everything on the exam in class. Do the extra credit though. She's very sweet and smart but not the best teacher

Comment:
This class was like the twilight zone of history classes. Absolutely ZERO structure. She rambles on & on about things that don't even seem to pertain to the topic of the course. After we left due to COVID, we hardly heard from her. She made no effort to even continue teaching us anything new. She's very smart but is not a good prof at ALL!

Professor Edwards is very passionate and knowledgeable about the subjects she teaches. I very much enjoyed her lectures and it feels very easy to participate and focus in her class. Overall, TAKE NOTES: if you take notes in her class and reach out to her during review sessions you should pass with a solid grade.

Comment:
Jane is one of the nicest people you will ever meet, but one of the worst professors I've ever had. This course along with the syllabus itself is very unorganized. She is not very clear with due dates and the midterms and final are the only grades you will get unless you do extra credit. Lectures are all over the place and it can get very confusing

I love Jane Edwards, shes insane, dont get me wrong, but shes very passionate about the things she teaches. Her lectures are all over the place but everything connects in the end. If you take good notes youll get a good grade. She is a sweet lady with an odd sense of humor. Opened my textbook twice the whole semester and finished with a 98.

Jane is a genius but the way her class is set up is horrendous! The only grades are the midterms, a paper, and the final. Her class is very unorganized with absolutely no structure and it makes things very confusing. She explains history out of order which doesn't help! She does offer extra credit if you have the time.

Prof. Edwards is nuts, but she is so funny and if you show you care (or act like you do) by talking to her after class, she will do everything she can to help you and give you a good grade. A lot of people don't like her, but be open to her chaos because you will learn a lot from her. Everything she talks about she tests, midterm, term paper, final

She is very funny. Everything on the tests she says, and she is very knowledgeable. You just have to get used to her bizarre mannerisms.

So besides the fact that the first thing she tells you is that she's a sadist, she's actually very caring. Shes sarcastic in class but she's willing to move a test if it means you will do better or if you're sick. Her class is 100% lecture, don't read the textbook, but STUDY. It annoyed me that the entire grade was your test grades &she grades hard

Comment:
Although Professor Edwards is a funny person, I could not deal with her as a professor. She grades so hard, and barely has any things to grade. If you do bad on the midterms, theres not much of a way to bring your grade up. Whatever you do, DO NOT take this class.

She is absolutely insane but she is a great teacher. She has no problems moving tests around and she is very understanding. As long as you take notes and actually pay attention you'll be fine. She is a self proclaimed sadist and I loved her.

She lectures every class so there's no need to buy the textbook if you take notes. For quizzes she gives you a list of 35 terms to study & writes 5 random ones on the board: you define a term, give its date, & write its historical significance. She calls herself a sadist & gives very few grades but you can write as many extra credits as you want.

Comment:
Never read the textbook, got an A+; she only assigns textbook readings as homework (so no HW) Extra Credit: write as many 2-page reflections as you want on anything you learn about history outside class, such as Maryland's Renaissance Festival Final paper: 4-6 pages on Communist Manifesto, use Headrick's "Tools of Empire" to prove Marx's Thesis

Jane has crazy lectures that go all over the place, and is a self proclaimed sadist for sure. But if you participate in the lectures when she asks the class questions she will like you and grade you easier! You are only graded on three things, but she gives the option of 5 extra credit papers, so do them! Jane is very smart and willing to help.

Avoid at all costs. You are graded on 3 parts to a midterm, a paper and a final. Her lectures are all over the place. She does give out review sheets but she will not have talked about any of the terms in class. She assumes you know a lot of info coming into an intro class. Have to study A LOT for exams. Very unclear about requirements. Do not take
