I enjoyed the class material somewhat, but it is fairly obvious that Professor Clinton does not enjoy teaching large intro classes. Despite grading us on this, she did not encourage student participation - she only accepts questions after 20+ minutes of lecturing, and will pointedly ask you to lower your hand if you try to ask a question during her lecture. The class overall had a weird, condescending atmosphere, but if it wasn't for that I would take it again. It was pretty easy grading and not that difficult to do well.

Professor Clinton is great. This class is a perfect intro to the history department. There are a lot of weekly readings, but I have learned so much (even as a history buff). Exams are fairly/liberally graded and she is very accommodating if you are in a tough spot. Would highly recommend.

The content of this class was super interesting, and there wasn't always a lot of work. However, sometimes, professor Clinton assigned us quizzes that we just had to do for the sake of doing them, which I found to be annoying. Like in the first week, we had to learn where a bunch of cities were on a map, and I forgot where it all was right after we took the quiz. Also i could have just googled it whenever I needed it so that was kind of annoying. Otherwise, there were a few papers and exams, but those were pretty straightforward.

Maggie Clinton is very blunt and not the most pleasant to be in class with, but does get her point across. I did think her lecturing style was effective and engaging, easy to follow along. I think some of my classmates would agree that the class did have a pretentious, condescending-type vibe that wasn't ideal. Material was actually super interesting, even for a non-history major.
