Comment:
I really enjoyed this course. Her lectures and style of teaching were engaging, especially for a topic like history which can be quite dry depending on the professor. There were a lot of readings for each lecture, all of which were provided to download. She's passionate about the topic and was very understanding.

Amazing prof. Her lecture style is like she's telling you a story; captivating and engaging with the material. Lot's of readings and discussion work, but I found this kept me engaged and helped me retain information. Stay on top of the work and do the discussions right away and you'll be fine. At least take one course with her, it's worth it.

She was one of my favourite professors last semester. Her class and lectures are interesting, she knows what she is talking about and she grades fairly. She gives really good feedback so you know exactly what you have to do, and she prepares you for the exams well in advance. I loved this class and would take it again.

She provides lots of readings but they're all SO useful. It's heavy on moodle discussions and writing assignments, but it helps big time with helping you understand course material. Her lectures are clear and concise. I've taken her courses multiple times and have never been disappointed by her and her passion for teaching!

Dr. Benzaquen is the most amazing professor I have ever had. Her lectures are always interesting and she uses a variety of teaching materials so it never feels boring. She breaks up the term into smaller, manageable assignments as oppose to fewer assignments that are worth more. Also very flexible with due dates. Amazing!!

This was my first history class, Adriana made it super interesting. Grade depends heavily on essays and your knowledge of the readings/textbook. Gave us a detailed study guide before the exam + let us pick our questions. Throughly enjoyed her as a prof. (If you're wondering about her accent, it's Argentinan!)

It's 2000 level course with grad school amount of readings and work. This was an elective and I regret taking it immensely. Tough grader and expects the world from second year students.

Most inspiring prof - and wonderful human being! Her classes are the most rewarding that I have taken. She puts great emphasis on individual responsibility for the readings and so long as you commit to the course she is always available to help. Best prof ever!!

I've taken a bunch of courses with Dr. Benzaquen, from the 2000 level right up to the end of my BA, she is an amazing woman, totally committed to her students' sucess. As long as you work you will get so much back. The readings are heavy, but she is there to guide you through them and it will be one of the most rewarding experiences of your BA.

Dr. Benzaquen is easily one of the most compassionate professors I've ever had the chance to meet, and her sole driving force is the students education. Though it can be boring and aggitating working through her classes, because not everyone likes her style of heavy reading and conversation. However, I enjoyed it, and the papers were fun to write.

There were a lot of readings, but it helped with the content of the class. She guilt trips you when you miss a class, but she is so understanding when you have a valid excuse. She is an amazing teacher.

I really enjoyed the class and Dr Benzaquen. There is quite a bit of reading, but nothing too extreme. The only negative thing I can say about her is that on papers and other assignments she doesn't really write any comments to justify her mark, even when you go to see her she doesn't have much to say except the standard response.

she is sweet and very helpful but the entire class is compleatly based on the readings(which are ALOT)class seemed like a waste of time since she mostly ask's questions on readings and lectures little (classes are mandetory espically if you want a good grade from her). the entire class sits in a circle, be prepared to talk... alot!!
