HIS 108
HIST OF U.S. THRU 1865
4****
You have a few papers to write and they are graded pretty hard. Tests arent too bad. He lectures really well and is crazy and jumps around and runs and almost "acts" out what hes teaching as opposed to just standing up and lecturing.

Dr. Summers has 12 detective assignments through out the semester and this course had a midterm, a final, and a paper. THe paper is due the last Monday of the class. The good thing about the detective assignments is even if you have the wrong answer you can still get full credit! Cares about his students a lot.

HIS 109
HIST OF U.S. SINCE 1865
5*****
Pros: Interesting class and very entertaining. He dresses in costume on the last day
Cons: Must attend class and take notes on the computer.
He gives you an overview of his lecture on the board and you fill it out during lecture. Bring a laptop because he talks fast.

Pros: No required attendance at lectures, entertaining.

I was getting an A in the class after 4 papers and 1 test and then after the final I was somehow lowered to a high C? Doesn't make much sense.
