Important scores and selected comments from anonymous student evalutions
Very knowledgeable about each topic Taught us what the books couldnt Beyond prepared, i felt like i was watching a keynote, you knew your presentations forwards and back Always made discussions very interesting I hate “social studies” classes and dreaded this one until about week 3 where I just loved going to class (only class this semester that I attended each and every class...even once when i was sick)
I really liked the way that this class was set up, it was not like a typical history class. I liked the focus more on the ideas behind why things happened in history and not just simply on memorizing facts on history, it made the class more interesting.
My notes for this class are the most organized out of all the classes I’ve ever taken thanks to the efficient and consistent layout of the powerpoint slides and the overall format of the class
I did not think I would enjoy history, but after taking this class I can look at events through a historical lens rather than through my own bias.
Dr. Wilson is the best history teacher I’ve ever had. I hated history in high school and only took it this semester to take a humanities course. But he made it fun and interesting and forced me to see history in a whole new way.
Wilson knew the content very extensively, but was that much better at conveying it to the students. He made the hardest of topics to understand both easy and interesting. He is very knowledgeable in the content area, and this helps him to teach it so well. Incorporated history, mass culture, etc. to make well balanced lessons. Loved the incorporations of videos or clips to help visualize the time period.
Professor Wilson taught in a way as if a story book being told to the class, adding in fun facts but maintaining the main idea. His teaching method is one I have not seen since being at LaSalle. It was much appreciated, I enjoyed attending the class.
He was great. He asked us the hard questions that got us thinking and gave us homework which made us HAVE to think critically and also helped with understanding.
