Prof. Bennette is an amazing prof and great with discussions. Very engaging, but don't bother taking this class if you don't like writing long papers. Discussions are every class, so if you didn't finish a reading -- it will show. Her essay prompts are very general and not a lot of guidance is given, but that is a good introduction to college writing and it makes you a better writer. Her office hours are helpful, and her comments on your essay will read like an English teacher, but it will be extremely valuable and helpful.

Overall, if you are interested in learning about history and how it can be expressed effectively in various mediums, this would be a good course for you.

Professor Bennette is super nice and a great person to be around. The material in this seminar is interesting and something you'd rarely find in other history classes. It is highly discussion and project-based, which is fine as long as you put in the effort.

She is an overall great professor, but the class gets extremely repetitive and boring. The readings are manageable and the one big project can be difficult and time-consuming. The grading is very fair.
