Comment:
His lectures are very disorganized. He'll move from one slide, skip five slides and then go back three -it's all very confusing. Not the best choice if you don't have quite a bit of background on Latin America History. His disorganization left me more confused that I would have been had he thought out his lectures.

Professor Walker is great! Always welcome in OH and give good feedback on papers. 3 short essays 3pgs, 1 long 5 to 7 he lets you pick the topic, in class midterm and final. Seems like a lot but not bad at all, reading is a must be he picked fantastic books. Kinzer's Ovethrow is one of my favorites in all of my history classes I've taken. TAKE HIM!

Comment:
Horribly unclear and unorganized. I love Latin American History, and after reading Walkers reviews online, I assumed he would be great. I was totally wrong. He'll get distracted easily; if someone mentions Peru or the study abroad program, he;ll go off on a tangent for the remainder of the class. His slides are just as unorganized.

Professor Walker is awesome! He makes the class really engaging and I learned so much about pre-Colombian America. Beware though that the TAs can be harsh graders, got stuck with a B+ The class was really fun and rewarding though so I don't regret taking it.

A great class to take if you need lower-division history units. 4 textbooks (must read--they will be used for papers and exams), two papers, midterm and final. Walker is fun and engaging, and has a great sense of humor. Even his "bad jokes" are funny. I highly recommend this class and this professor.

I would also have liked a challenge. This class had none. Lots of filler in his class. This is the class to take if you want an entire lecture on 'what to do after college,' and two movies.

Heard great things, ended up not being impressed. Attended class but messed around on laptop. Scanned books before tests and got an A-. Would have liked more of a challenge.

Walker is awesome! If you're already into the topic he is teaching he will just make it that much more interesting and give you exactly what you're looking for. Make use of his office hours! I got a full letter grade higher on a paper for it. I highly recommend this instructor and wish I could take more classes with him.

Really down to earth and approachable, genuinely cares about students. Very interesting lecturer. Makes the subject very clear and his expectations on tests and papers likewise. Likes to get creative on paper prompts with hit or miss results.

Charles Walker is the best! I'm a history major and he's one of the best history professors I've had. He always give both sides even when he doesn't hide his opinion, and he summarizes and outlines things very nicely and clearly. Makes class fun and enjoyable! I highly recommend him!
