Dr. McDaniel is the most confusing professor I have ever encountered. She claims that attendance is mandatory but towards the end of the semester completely disregarded her own rule. The final was completely unclear and most of the multiple choice answers included multiple correct answers. DO NOT …more TAKE if you need any guidance at all in classes. less

Dr. McDaniel knows her American History and teaches it well. You won't need a textbook for this course, but you will me using the YAWP online for test material. Her lectures are entertaining and she cares for her students. Show up, listen, read, pass.

She is a very nice lady but she does not explain things very well at all. You can ask her questions and you will get a different answer every time. There is never a solid due date for work so it varies throughout the day. She also changes her requirements for projects on the fly. A very …more disorganized class but a very nice lady who means well. less

Dr. McDaniel is super sweet. She's a little scatterbrained but in a good way. She gives assignments and says we have quizzes but then never follows through. This is a semester long group project but you choose the topic, super easy. She also cancels class a lot. Very nice and respected teacher so …more be nice to her!! less

Very unclear and loves to cancel class every day. Every class is either a waste of time or extremely boring. save yourself and take an easier teacher.

Dr. McDaniel is a sweet lady and clearly knowledgable. She ended up cancelling so much of our class days that we didn't have a midterm or final. Usually you'd have those & a group project that you work on throughout the semester. There is some reading but it's short & easy & not …more entirely necessary. Class is some lecture, videos, & discussion. less

By far the worst professor I've ever had in my 4 yrs of higher ed. This is a gen-ed class, however she grades on the caliber of most 3000-4000 level courses. Ironically, she doesn't teach with half the amt of quality, passion, clarity, or devotion she expects from her students. She is unorganized …more to a faultiness comparable to the depths of hell. less

Although Dr. McDainel is a caring teacher her class is very disorganized. The class was canceled a lot and none of the lectures were very clear. She changes project requirements after the due date and grades very harshly for a gen ed class. Overall, save yourself and do not take this class. You can …more do everything she asks and still make a low grade. less

Lots of books and you have to read them. Only two tests but theyre super long and cover a LOT of information that her lectures dont cover. There was an essay on the first test that was super hard and was graded really hard. In the end, a lot of people had bad grades so she gave a bunch of extra …more credit and curved grades a lot. Shes nice, TA wasnt less
