HIS 111A
Ancient History
4****
Just go to lecture and take notes. Actually do some research for your research paper. I took both this and 111B with Spyro, and both times got a B+ for what I felt was a fairly moderate to light amount of work. I think with a bit more of a push and devotion that the A can be earned.

Spyridakis is a good lecturer. Every lecture is as if he's telling a story. Tests are from lectures so attendance is a must. There's one midterm, a final, and a term paper. He's really lenient and there's even a curve in this class. Amazing!

Pros: By far one of the best instructors I have ever had! His lectures are never boring and he never fails to entertain. If you attend lecture regularly then you are certain to pass his class with a high mark.

HIS 111B
Ancient History
4****
Pros: He's hilarious and it's a must to take at least one of his classes.
Cons: There is always a research paper. He can be hard to understand I liked to sit in the front so I could hear him better. He also seems to go off topic a lot beware of writing down everything he says.
Don't buy the books unless you want to use them for your research paper.

HIS 111A
Ancient History
5*****
Pros: Awesome lecturer! He understands humankind so his lectures are very passionate & sometimes he tells jokes, tries to connect with the students, tries to give advice about being a good person, very humble.
Cons: No structure for the essay, we had to write on anything we wanted (related to ancient history, of course) with no other guides.

HIS 111A
Ancient History
5*****
Pros: Extremely knowledgeable, passionate about his subject, open-ended research project allowing you to choose what you want to study/research.
Cons: Massive lecture size
I would heavily recc. taking him and as soon as possible, he's been around for, what...46 years? Who knows when he might retire, it would suck to miss out on his classes.
