Dr. Thompson is a great professor. His lectures are always interesting and I always found he was ready to answer any questions I may have. He pushes you to be your best and helps you along the way.

Great professor! Participation matters a lot! He is a tough grader but at the end of the semester, he allows you to make up any assignment you want.

Always willing to make time to talk about concerns in class. Flexible with deadlines to an extent. Dr Thompson did an amazing job at making the honors project easy to approach and as stress free as possible.

Comment:
Professor Thompson is certainly the best history teacher I have ever had. His love of the subject is infectious, and he cares for his students to a high degree. His feedback on assignments is incredibly useful and his guidance greatly improved my historical writing/analysis. You should always read, so you can participate in class discussion.

The class is fairly easy if you take notes and listen. He takes his time to explain, and is very accommodating to students. There are make ups and re dos allowed for papers; however he is a tough grader (which all expectations are outlined in the syllabus).

Comment:
This is a very student lead class. He won't remind you of assignments and might forget himself. Come to class to understand the information and get extra perks like extended deadlines. Usually you can turn things in a few days late anyway. He never uses blackboard so make sure to email him assignments directly, or set up an appointment with him.

Dr. Thompson is frankly the best that FCC has to offer. He is dedicated to the success of his students and sees potential in every single student. His lecture style draws interaction from students easily. He requires heavy reading to enable discussion in class and gives plenty of essays to prepare students for transfer to other schools.

If you get involved with the Honors Program, you are bound to have him. He is absolutely amazing, willing to work with students, funny, caring, and a GREAT educator. I had him for an honors history course (history is NOT my strong suite and I can never remember things right), he made this class FUN and lectures are actually good. Keep up on work

Gives very interesting lectures and overall is a very nice guy. However his class is not easy at all. Not many ways to pull your grade up if you do bad on one assignment. Hes a awesome guy however and is very kind and a great educator.

You will be hard pressed to find a more professional teacher at any campus. Knows the subjects, enjoys the subjects, and his passion rubs off on you while he teaches.

I took two of his classes years ago and he is one of the best teachers I've ever had. He engages his class through fascinating story-telling that he relates to every day life. You take a lot of notes, but you don't mind! I'd take another of his classes without a second thought!

He's a great professor, if you love history or lectures then you will enjoy his class. However your grades are pretty much entirely based on your paper and test grades. He is very understanding and does not harp about missing classes or turning in assignments late due to personal life. Super nice and is always willing to help students!

He doesn't just give away points but he isn't unreasonable. This class won't kill you but it's by no means a show up and pass. Class can get off topic and feel pointless but if you stick it out and come to class he practically hands you the answers to the tests.

The entire class is one long lecture. I found them easy to follow and entertaining (though i am a history buff). He encourages class participation and is quick to answer questions.

Very lecture based but just pay attention and you don't have to read the book. The book actually is not helpful and he will tell you you don't actually need it. He is very reasonable and is willing to help students who struggle. The tests are hard but can be done, especially because you know everything that is on it ahead of time. Good teacher.

Relies completely on lecture, doesn't have print outs and doesn't write on the board. Very nice guy and is very educated. For tests, he gives study guides with about terms and tells you to know the "who, what, when, where, why and how" of every term. Hardest class I've ever taken and only class I've truly had to study for. Amazing teacher, though.
