Tufts University: Gerald Gill - History - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Gerald Gill | HIST096 - The African American Since 1865 | History2005-07-22

Review:
He is a great lecturer and I learned a lot. The readings are very short and the one paper required very interesting research. I would not, however, rave about this professor.. he was neither inspirational nor particularly helpful outside of class.

Gerald Gill | HIST096 - The African American Since 1865 | History2005-05-17

Review:
Gill is probably one of the best professors at Tufts. He began this class by giving out a sheet of terms he would go over and he always managed to adequately inform you on each topic in exactly 50 minutes - this man has his classes down to a science. He is extremely approachable and friendly and willing to answer questions outside of and after class. He was so thoughtful in his lectures and conveyed his knowledge amazingly. I can't say enough wonderful things.

Workload:
He had a lot of reading out of various books, so of which were quite pinpointed studies (an entire book on the migration of southern black women to the Eastern Bay area during the war) and obscure (dress of African-Americans during certain periods) to things you would just expect (Black Leaders of the Twentieth Century), but these books change every semester and are part of analysis on essay tests - worth reading, but takes time.

Gerald Gill | HIST095 - African American History to 1815 | History2004-07-17

Review:
I really like Prof. Gill. On a personal note, he is a very nice man, very friendly, makes an effort to get to know his students and even occasionally buys tickets to events on campus and gives them to his students. He is also very involved in campus life and shows up at lectures, discussions, performances, rallies, etc. In the classroom, Gill is a very clear lecturer and pretty dynamic. He teaches well and is very fair.

Workload:
Assignments were a decent amount of reading each week, but not too much. We had a midterm, a final, and a final paper. Reasonable. There were also optional review sessions held with a TA every week to go over stuff. I went before tests and she was helpful.
