Tufts University: Jacqueline Carlon - History - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Jacqueline Carlon | HIST017 - History of Ancient Rome | History2005-01-06

Review:
Prof. Carlon is one of the best teachers I've had at Tufts and after finishing this class I signed up for another Rome class of hers. She is very engaging and makes the history of Rome fun to experience. The class is also pretty open and she has available office hours. She presents the entire class on powerpoint so there are a lot of good visual aids, etc.

Workload:
There were three tests during the semester. There was a weekly homework ditto assignment based on supplementary reading, which was apart from the main textbook. These readings are from primary sources and ancient historians, etc., to try among other things to examine how the historical record can be distorted by the bias of the historian. Although I found that you didn't need to read every single assignment, I felt it was a good idea to do it anyway to get a better grasp of the culture of Rome (if it wasn't on the assignment, it probably won't be on the test, so don't make the mistake I did and try to memorize every blessed word we read!). Homework is flexible and the lowest grade is dropped, which helps when there's a big test in something else that week. One of the best classes I ever took.

Jacqueline Carlon | CLS038 - History of Ancient Rome | Classics2004-12-22

Review:
Professor Carlon was an excellent teacher; each lecture was interesting and she was engrossing for the entire 50 minutes. However, my problem with the course is not with her, but rather with the TAs. They are very subjective when it comes to grading worksheets and tests. Overall, a very interesting course, just make sure you choose the right TA.

Workload:
Maybe 50 - 60 pages a week. Worksheet due every week.

Jacqueline Carlon | HIST017 - History of Ancient Rome | History2004-04-30

Review:
Professor Carlon is probably the best lecturer I've heard at Tufts. After taking this course, I signed up for another with her the following semester. All the material is clearly presented on powerpoint. She's readily available to discuss any range of topics. I learned more in relation to other courses. It was just very enjoyable to go to class each time.

Workload:
There was the usual amount of reading for a history course. Each week she gave out questions to the reading. I found this helpful. Since class was so closely connected to the reading, I did not feel overwhelmed by it. The tests are quite challenging. You really need to make sure you know the material. To help us out, Professor Carlon gives five essay topics to prepare before the exam, three of which are essay options on the exam.
