Tufts University: George Marcopoulos - History - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
I don't think Professor Marcopoulos ever looked up while he was lecturing. He read off some book filled with notes for 50 minutes, and the class spent the entire time trying to keep up with what he was saying. He does not take questions during class to ensure that he gets through the daily lecture. That being said, this class isn't particularly hard. Make sure you go to recitation and make sure you get the work that is assigned finished on time. If you do what they assign and not make it look done hastily, you will do well. Go to the review sessions led by the TA's and ask them about everything. The TA's pretty much end up saying everything that you'll remember. Overall, pretty boring, but if you're looking for a not so challenging A, then this is it.
If you did all the assigned reading, it is a lot. If you did what needed to be done for the assigned essays/journal entries, then about 1.5-2 hours of work a week. 1 1-2 page essay per week, 1 midterm, 1 "term" exam, 1 final. 5-6 Journal entries (opinionated history answers) due before the term exam and before the final exam.
