One of the most carefully planned courses I’ve taken at Midd. Imagine an AP Latin American Studies course with your favorite Professor. Readings were 30-60 pages 2x week but they were always worthwhile and expanded upon in class. Professor Poppe a sweet and very fun millennial professor who holds his students to a rigorous standard but provides a lot of support. Main assessments were creative weekly writing assignments (<350 words), open notes/group work encouraged take-home midterm/final, and student led book groups.

Professor Poppe is a phenomenal professor and extremely passionate about Latin America. I stepped into the course without knowing what to expect. Every class required 30 to 60 pages of pre readings and then class time was used to discuss the readings in depth. Each week there was a short essay assigned that connected to the reading and taught students how to write and think in elastically in new ways. If you are interested in Latin American history, I highly recommend you take this class. Professor Poppe really works to challenge his students and to help them grow. I would definitely take this class again.
