Professor Reviews in HIST 1376


  • Class rating 5/5
    Good professor, but he will shock younger students with his blunt attitude. He is very straight forward and lays out everything for you to the letter. You must follow his rules, or he will call you out. Be respectful of him and his class, and you have nothing to worry about. It is kind of entertaining watching him boot someone for disrupting class. ...Continue reading

    Hopkins is a really good teacher! . BUT I actually feel like this was necessary in order for me to get the A I wanted. She is really clear on what she wants! Make sure to pay attention in class and take notes. The essays are scary but she gives you the prompts beforehand. She actually got me to learn. ...Continue reading

    Hopkins may be the best professor at UH, or at least for freshman. Her TA's are especially helpful and the lab was well worth it! I recommend you take this professor as a freshman. It is a good experience. I've hated history all my life and I actually enjoyed this class. Take lots of notes in class, do the readings for the lab section, and don't blow off the out of class assignments. The tests are essay format so it's in your best interest to study the given prompts! ...Continue reading

    Have to be at the lectures because she gives you information you need to write your papers. Doesn't use power points, recites everything off the top of her head. Must attend class and be taking notes at all times. TAs count you absent if you're pull your phone out, sleep, or don't take notes. She's funny and goes through everything in great detail. Write down what she says, attend class, and you'll be fine ...Continue reading

    Weekly essays based on textbook readings, 1-2 pages, very simple as long as you're on top of things. If you have a laptop I really recommend bringing it because then you can type all the details.

    One of the best teacher's I've ever had. Don't get me wrong she's really nice and funny but her tests are all essay and graded too hard for being a core class that I don't care about. I got an A- but I should've gotten an A+. So I learned my lesson and took HIST 1377 at a comm. college ...Continue reading

    Professor Hopkins is one of the best professors I have taken. I am neutral when it comes to History, and she made me love it! Strict on attendance and being punctual. There are 3 papers for the semester plus the weekly online quizzes and 1 pagers that are weekly for the TA's. (I usually do them in the hour gap between class and lectures). Great & funny professor would take again! Come to class everyday, take good notes, and complete your work on time and you'll do fine. Her lectures were interesting, and I would take notes on your laptop so you can get all of the information down because she moves fairly fast. ...Continue reading

    Dr. Hopkins is my favorite teacher, she is hilarious and tells jokes to keep students engaged in her lectures. Her lectures tell you EVERYTHING that will be on the tests, and there are only 2 tests: the midterm and the final, which are basically the same. 2 out of 5 essays she shows you before that include 4-5 ID terms. I hated history and struggled during high school, now I love it and know us history til 1877 so well. I can't believe I waited till my senior year to take this class because everyone told me history will be hard. TAKE HERRRR! ...Continue reading

    Her lectures are prepared all the way to the jokes she tells. Even if you HATE history, you'll find her lectures fun, it's impossible not to be interested. Attendance is mandatory. The TA's are a little tough, but not too bad. There are no actually tests, just papers, so no memorizing! Take great notes and you've done half the work for your paper. Only bummer is that there is assigned seating, but you can make friends in the labs. overall, Hopkins lectures were intriguing and fun. ...Continue reading

    One of the best teachers I ever had. Her lectures are literally the best and she's SO entertaining. Attendance is important because TAs will count you absent. Instead of taking super long tests, she makes you write 4-5 page papers which really isn't as bad as it seems. The TAs were super nice! The rest of the grading is from learnsmarts and attendance! Super easy ...Continue reading

    Hopkins gives extremely informative lectures that feel like storytelling and since her class is only an hour long, time flies. If you have the chance to take her, TAKE HER! She will make you enjoy history and actually want to listen to her lectures. Never liked history before taking her. Trust me, click the add button on her class. She'll answer every question she's asked with clarity. She's a fun lecturer that makes American History feel like a fun stand up routine. Only bad thing is the TAs. Learn to adjust to them and you'll be fine. Never skip.... you'll regret it. She's a great, fun professor:) ...Continue reading

    I love her lectures, like she makes history is fun and interesting. Well, if you don't have money, just get only DTAP. TEP is only for extra info. Contrary to the other history teachers I had in the past, this professor's lectures paves a different perspective to history, making it all the less boring. as for the labs, be sure to read DTAP and print the assigned documents. EASY CLASS. Her lectures are very clear and easy to understand. Reading is almost nothing. Midterm and Final are essays. She will give you 5 prompts then on the day of the test you have to write 2.

You're always interesting, always helpful and cheery, and I love to come to your class, but having your TA's babysit us in assigned seats makes it an ordeal. We're adults, please treat us as such. Either way, I love you, take her guys! Btw: Native Americans, not Indians Her lectures are engrossing and so organized! My notes basically took themselves. Her grading criteria are clear and it's impossible to fail really unless you're like super lazy. Learnsmarts are easy you can basically take your midterm and finals before time with a study guide.

    You get study guides prior to the Exams. You're always interesting, always helpful and cheery, and I love to come to your class, but having your TA's babysit us in assigned seats makes it an ordeal. We're adults, please treat us as such.

Her grading criteria are clear and it's impossible to fail really unless you're like super lazy. Learnsmarts are easy you can basically take your midterm and finals before time with a study guide. The only thing that I didnt like were her TAs ...Continue reading

    BEST PROFESSOR I have taken in my 4 years at UH. Her lectures are thoroughly enjoyable and interesting. She repeats things so you're not scrambling to get all the information down. There are no tests, only papers and learnsmarts. As long as you show up to class, the class is relatively simple. She prepares you for all the assignments well ...Continue reading
