Simpson's class was my favorite class I've ever taken. Although it was a lot of lectures and note taking, the way he taught made me want to come back the next day and learned what happened next. All in all, his class was amazing and 100% worth taking

Definitely my favorite professor that I've had so far. Gives lectures like a story which makes them a lot more interesting, and there's no homework, only a midterm and a final. He's super nice and caring and I've stayed after class to just talk with him. Sadly he's retiring, but he owns a coffee stand nearby and pierce students get discounts.

John Simpson was great. The classes were interesting and easy to pass as long as you pay attention. He also owns Primo Espresso in Lakewood by O'Reilly's Auto Parts and Jack in the Box and they offer a discount for pierce college students.

Comment:
Mr. Simpson was such a good teacher. He tells history like a story which made it 10 times more interesting. The only tests are the midterm and the final, which he reviews the day before. Attendance is important but as long as you get the notes from someone else and show up on review days you'll be fine.

AMAZING teacher! Mr. Simpson brings passion into his lectures and uses modern day examples to explain his lectures further. He gives a solid lecture every day that keeps you at the edge of your seat from start to finish. He also likes to lighten up the mood with a few jokes which I appreciated as an early morning student. Great class content!

Its an easy class. There is one test mid quarter and one at the end, no final. Both test are easy(multiple choice and 1 essay question each), some extra credit and basically all you'll be graded on. His lectures are great , funny, and will assign readings once in a while.

I LOVED MR. SIMPSON! There was never a dull moment in his class. Like other people have said, although attendance is not graded, it is my recommendation that you do your best to show up every day. He is so passionate about history and the way Mr. Simpson teaches it is unlike any other teacher. He is a great guy, I very much enjoyed his class.

Great lectures, only has a midterm and final test. Ask questions, show interest, and you'll be fine. He does an amazing job of presenting history in an unbiased fashion, and keeps you engaged. A note: if you want to earn a little more favor, go get coffee from Primo coffee in Lakewood- he owns it, and he'll like you for supporting his business.

Simpson was great, funny guy. I had to take his evening classes for both HIST&156 and &157. If Simpson wasn't teaching, I would have skipped this class everyday. He made History very interesting and told it like a story. He grades papers leniently and he makes his own tests, which are fairly easy if you pay attention and take notes on his lectures.

Wonderful lectures! Very informative and fun. He makes history seem like a story he is telling. Very lenient in grading and laid back! The text is not required, but the essays are based on readings in the book. If you attend lectures and take good notes, you should be fine!

Mr. Simpson is an amazing professor. You have a midterm (worth 50 points) and a final (worth 50 points). The lectures are informative and he has no trick questions on tests. He will have to miss days on occasion but when he goes he has the optional opportunity for extra credit. Although attendance isn't graded it is really important to prepare.

Seriously the most amazing professor you will ever take! He lectures through story telling and everything is so interesting. I wrote down almost everything he said and starred everything he wrote on the board. He offers extra credit and if you try hard he will boost your grade A LOT at the end of the quarter! Great guy and is super helpful.
