Comment:
Gallucci is not perfect lecturer, so reading is the key to this course. He assigned a lot of reading such as Starr and Classics in Translation. Keep reading and pay special attention to Starr book. Passages in CiT such as Haunting House and Aeneid are also important. Overall, his course is amazing. His review sheet also helps a lot.

Professor Gallucci is an excellent professor who is knowledgeable in what he teaches. It is an easy course, as long as, you show up to lecture and take notes (p.s try not to fall asleep!). The final and midterm were straightforward, as well as, majority of it was on the study guides (which I recommend filling out).

Didn't go to any lectures and got an A. Midterm and final were very easy. Article summaries graded on completion. I did have to read the book for the book review but got 100% with not too much effort so it was also probably graded on completion. Proofread your work, he takes off points for spelling/grammar. Would recommend, he's a very nice guy.

He has a particular lecture style that many people will not like. He is very monotonous but, is obviously a professor who cares about his students. Participation in section is important for credit.

Easy A class, but there's interesting material! You won't have to show up to lectures for an A, and the exams are pretty simple. Super nice guy, and you won't regret taking the class :)

Professor Gallucci appears to be a very nice person, but his lectures are extremely difficult to follow along and take notes on. Despite this, the material is very easy and attending lectures was optional. Your grade will consist of two papers, a midterm, and a final exam.

Profesor Gallucci is a great professor! Attend class & take notes and youll be sure to pass. Midterm & final were easy. You have to write two one page papers that are really easy and he is clear with his grading structure.

Comment:
Very boring during lectures but very easy midterm and final. This may be because it was online and therefore open book/note, but overall this class was a super easy A. The readings he assigned were pretty interesting, and you definitely did not have to pay close attention to the lectures to get a good grade.

Comment:
Took this course during session B of M20. The lectures were quite boring, but the class itself is easy. The rubrics and expectations were clearly defined. Gallucci's biggest flaw is that he doesn't usually check zoom so if he's accidentally muted, he'll stay that way until a TA gets ahold of him... which admittedly has happened a few times.

Gucci Gallucci is not the most entertaining professor, but he is a good man and is very passionate about Greek Myth. Overall, the class was an easy A.

Gallucci understands that his students are just there for a gen ed, so he makes it easy. He's pretty much incoherent during lectures, but it doesn't really matter. Just go over the study guide and cram for a day or two before the midterm and final, and you'll get an easy A. Take a class with Gallucci if you want an easy gen ed.

Comment:
Dr. Gallucci's course examining the historicity of the Trojan War enriched my memories of the visit I took to Turkey this past summer. The course fulfills both the literature GE area and a writing requirement, and Dr. Gallucci makes it clear that an A is achievable with minimal effort -- graded based on 2 papers, 2 exams, and 8 article summaries.

Comment:
Gucci Gallucci. His lectures can be boring sometimes but he is always willing to take questions. Tests are fairly easy. He knows that his class is mostly for students getting a G.E. credit so he just expects his students do have a general understanding of the course, nothing extreme like other professors.

So. Boring. I was interested in Greek Mythology but Gallucci sucked all the life out of it. I fell asleep almost every lecture, could not pay attention to him. Multiple choice exams with comprehensive study guides, weekly quizzes in section, minimal writing, extra credit opportunities, overall easy A if you read the textbook

Took him for INT 95A during Summer 2019. It was an easy class, though quite boring. There are usually guest speakers, but they weren't much better.

I had Gallucci for Summer 2019. Lectures were unorganized and contained scattered material. Do the reading, attend section, and go to the review sessions the night before each test and you'll be fine.

His lectures are pretty boring but he basically goes over the reading so pay attention. He does review study sessions before the midterm and final which are helpful. You do have to write a book review. Extra credit is available. The midterm and final were m/c and t/f and werent difficult. Going over notes help help and quizlet, just know stories.

Comment:
I love Gallucci! I wouldnt necessarily agree that hes boring, because hes not. He just tends to have a very low, monotone mumble while teaching. Pro-tip (from someone whos hadnt him for three classes): The readings guide his lectures so hes very easy to follow along if you read + then its easier to know when to zone out when he tangents.

Comment:
Yeah, the class is easy and while some people find Greek Mythology more interesting than I do, I often literally have no idea what the man is saying and I find it impossible to follow the stories when he tells them. It's almost like they paid him to make it as boring as possible and mumble and lose his train of thought. Ridiculous how bad he is.
