Always Do the Reading
This class was tough.
Professor Dodson's teaching style is very elaborate. He uses many visual aids to help immerse you in the subject you are studying. Rather than quizzing you on answers he wants you to understand the cause and effect of a war or a famine. Rather than emphasizing on dates and names, his focus is on the larger picture (the world that caused the problem). Dodson is an extremely knowledgeable and intelligent mentor, and he clearly cares about each of his students.
We discussed Ancient Sumerian culture, where life began, through all of Rome, then we delved into the dark and middle ages up through the Renaissance.

Advice for students:
You really need to study your book, but more than anything study your notes (and take good notes). Pay attention to the discussions because in those discussions are the answers for the tests. Don't come in thinking this will be an easy class; his tests are hard. However, this class is fun and will be beneficial for you.
