Leonard, Daniel
[FYSB BC1156/69] First Year Seminar: Legacy of the Mediterranean I

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

I can't fault Daniel for the class being boring. It's impossible to make all of that material interesting, especially since nearly everyone in the class has already read at least some of the books. I give him credit for introducing bits of information that I was unaware of, but that helped make the material more clear. He's a better prof than most, but he isn't the best I've had. In short, don't not take a class just because he's teaching it. The guy did his best, it's just my class wasn't particularly interested in the subject matter.

Workload:

Several papers, peer editing, LOTS of reading--we read more than the other classes (standard for the class)
