I really liked the course content and how Professor Davis presented the information. However, I would say that he was quite disorganized which often made the class confused and not fully grasp what was going on at all times. I think that if our lessons had been more structured, I could have gotten more out of the class. As well, the fact that the midterm was 50% of the grade and the final was only 15% put a disproportionate weight on the first half of class content. Ultimately though, I would say I learned a lot about Spanish and Portuguese Latin colonialism, the Atlantic world slave trade, and the formation of democracy in France and America.

The only complaint I have about this course was that Davis was not the best with technology, but other than that, he was absolutely fantastic. His passion about the history of the Atlantic world was completely contagious, and he involved the class to the maximum degree in discussion. Great class
