He cares about his students so much! He shows us that he cares by showing so many movies that we really do not have to work all that hard to get a passing grade.

He often rambled on during class with no clear meaning of where his lectures were going or what the topic was supposed to be. I didn't learn much from him.

The most useless class I took at Westminster and the problem was that it supposed to be one of the most important I take as a history major!!!!

Comment:
Dr. Twining was definately affected by the 1960s and I don't mean that he has a better understanding of the time period. He makes up the most ridiculous and irrelevant tests and assignments and I really don't think he ever read what I wrote. If you like movies you might like this class.

Comment:
He fails to engage students in learning, asking questions that have nothing to do with the class, showing movies that people sleep through, and rarely lecturing. I know people think he's easy but he lectures so little that you are forced to go to the book for all the answers, so if you don't like to read the text book I wouldn't recomend this class

Comment:
Dr. Twining was da bomb!! He wasn't afraid to actually use other methods besides lecture in his instruction (unlike some other history profs here), which added to the overall learning experience, not to mention make class more interesting. Nice personality and very easy to approach if you have problems or questions outside of class.

This is coming from a history major- avoid this guy unless you need an IP credit. Any self respecting History major can't sit in one of his classes without having Deja Vu of high school. No grading criteria, little explanation of assignments, and crappy assignments at that. Granted he knows his stuff. We are now three weeks behind the syllabus.

Great Professor! This guy reminded me of "The King of Cartoons" from****Wee's Playhouse b/c all we did was watch films. He would show up, and then "ROLL FILM....." I loved it. Nice Guy too.

I thought he was awful. He never gave criteria for grades. All we did was watch movies that I have been watching since 7th grade (Civil Rights Movement). When he lectured, he rambled BS about the economy and other irrelevant information.

I have never had a class where I watched so many movies in my entire life. Movies are helpful learning tools, but not the only ones.

Big on having students do presentations for class. Many elements of class were just like high school. Easy prof overall, however I did learn a lot. Extremely friendly and easy to get along with. Recommend taking any Twining course!
