26. How did the instructor show concern for students?
I dont know if she has a concern for students, class gets kind of boring same procedure every day.
She'd help out as much as possible if not work with the students she provided an SI to help.
She always gave you the papers you needed to catch up if I missed class.
She gave out extra credit and let people re-do their papers.
She takes time to notice those students who are here aswell as not here and if they happen to miss a class she give the proper material they missed that day so every student is on the same page.
She would listen clearly to out questions and answer them exactly how we need in a decent time frame so we can still get the class going.
She makes sure they know what she is teaching by repeating the concept in different ways until we get it
She is firm and doesn't allow us to slack off.
She has an SI forth class and she also implements group work and extra instruction/hand outs and other resources and materials to provide extra information for the student outside of the traditional textbook information.
She provided us with SI sessions and opportunity for some extra credit.
She lets the class know that we can come to her and she can help in any way and recommends us to use the SI as much as possible.
She gives us the study guides to do well on the test. She clearly states when a point that she is making will be on the exam. She always suggest the SI sessions for students who aren't doing so well and for students who might want to do better.
She encourages students to go to SI sessions, she asks us alot of questions in class to make sure we know the material.
organized study guides
She pushes SI sessions. She keeps us updated on our tests and grades.
If I missed a class she would always have handouts ready for me when I came in. I wouldn't even have to ask.
If help was needed she was available to help. Struggling students were instructed to attend SI sessions to try to improve their grade and given the chance to do better on exams by resubmitting essays.
She constantly gave the breakdown of how students where doing after exams and what they could do to improve.
She made sure that teh students were participating with one another and she is always asking us questions to make sure we understand the material.
She Knows The Material Extremely Well
she wants all her students passing. when someone was not passing she would send e-mails giving them a chance to bring up their grade so they would not fail. every exam she would let everyone know in email and in class what everyone got as a grade.
She encouraged the supplemental instruction, gave feedback on grades, spent immense time and resources grading quizzes and doing handouts and she integrated media well into the class for visual, otic, and communicative learning. Her energy for her topics is boundless and she made history fascinating and relevant in a way I did not know could be possible.
27. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
Dislike how everyday was the same. Like the study guides
Janice is a nice teacher however she speaks way to fast and jumps all over the place so its hard to get the concept of the lessopn.
She taught relevant things. Didn't trail off. A lot of work but over all you can learn alot. She makes History interesting.
She made it interesting and relative.
I liked that she was friendly and welcoming. I disliked all the homework that took away the intrest from the course.
She knows her history information inside and out! Nuckols knows her history!
I like how she really enjoys teaching her course and therefor makes it interesting for the class. I like that she uses educational yet interesting videos and photos as examples instead of just lecturing us, which and get boring and put a student to sleep.
I dislike the amount of information she expects us to know but when it comes time to the exam, not all the info is on it
I really liked that she relied on us to do the reading and instead of going over and over the same material in class, she gave us extra information from her own experience and knowledge base which filled in a lot of the holes that the book simply didn't have space enough to get in to. She allowed us to engage the material on our own and then supported our learning with group work and allowed us to engage one another about the text. She also she gave us breif pop-quizzes in class which seemed to promote everyone keeping up with the reading and making a strong effort to abosorb the material so that when we worked in groups, everyone had read the book and had something to contribute. She also engagedus in open convversation in class about the material and talked WITH us not AT us and it gives you an ownership over the material and an ability to reinforce and openly ask questions if need be.
She knows her subject well and tries to get the students interested.
I liked how she kept things interesting. She added some humor to touchy subjects in all religions and was very thorough with the subjects at hand. I disliked that we were put into groups after every hoework assignment to go over our answers. I would have liked to go over our homework and study guides with her in class for my own sake. I would have liked to have known if what I had down as an answer was correct. I can understand why she doesn't for fear of others that didnt do their homework would get free answers but it was still that way while we met in groups. I didn't like haveing my homework all done and others in my group not having it done, it ended up making me the tutor. Ididn't gain from that. That was a bit fustrating.
I like how she paints a big picture and explains what she wants us to understand. I did not like history at all, but being in her class makes me want to learn more about history. I love her class although she gives a lot of information and a lot of reading and homework it makes me want to learn more.
She doesn't throw any curveballs with the material she says is going to be on the test. She's a straight-shooter and that's good for a teacher that gives a good deal of work to be done throughout the semester. I would definitely take another one of her courses.
I didn't like the DWs but I understand why we need, them.
the study guides and the format
I like that she is passionate about what she teaches. She compares some things to the present day which makes history more understandable.
The tests are a little rough. But I think their format makes it so you really have to understand the material. You cant just fake your way through. I like this because It challenges me. Plus I can still remember the material.
The videos helped to illustrate the things she talked about, and her conversationalist tone in class during lecture created an atmosphere where students could feel comfortable contributing to the discussion.
I liked that she gave modern day articles that were relevant to what we are studying to keep it interesting. I didn't like that it seemed like an overwhelming amount of reading at times. I would have liked more powerpoints or something else to help aid the lecture rather than just more reading.
I like that I always knew what we were expected to be doing and how she wanted things done
One thing I particularly liked about the way the course is taught is the way exams are administered; There are multiple exams given on the exam dates and the specific exam a student may recive varies. Thus, it encourages students to learn as much of the material as possible because they cannot count on reciveing any test in particular.
Dislike that how she gives us all the study guides there is just so much information.
shes a really good teacher and gives a lot of information.
Well, I would say the small group discussion is a good dynamic for engaging the class into the subject matter but all too often students just read from whatever they wrote, word for word out of the textbook. Very little discussion is had because there is little room for argument. If the questions were written more openly, such as for one's opinion like "What do you think when you hear the word jihad or hajib?" more personal discussion and reflection is done.
It is way too intense for those of us that are not History majors and way too time consuming that effected the way I treated my major classes. The grading or point system is sometimes contradictory and discouraging in what is required to get an "A" in this class. I regret taking this class at windward and will not make this same choice again.
28. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Funny. Nice.
Her course was hard but with effort and motivation it was possible to get an ok grade in her class.
She is a really understanding teacher who takes time to help her students pass this course!!
She's really kind and grades fairly and takes time to listen to a student's questions and enjoys teaching her subject, which makes it that much more interesting and easy to learn.
Even though she gives us a lot of work and information to digest; in the end we come out at the end of the semester as much better students.
She's a good professor.
Although I have some dislikes about the class I think overall Janice is an awesome teacher. She's very detailed with her work and what she wanted from her students.This helped me to try to be more thorough on my end as well and it's made me more interested in History. I might just take history 152 next semester, even if I don't need too.
She is an excellent teacher, being out of school for over 25 years I really enjoy her class and look forward to hear what she has prepared. Her class is awesome.
She's a great teacher
She's a very fair teacher and she engages the class. She makes history very interesting & is very knowledgeable on the subject.
She is a good teacher. always prepared, and knows what she is talking about
Great teacher! Seems genuinely interested and very knowledgable in her subject. Would add examples that students could relate to.
She is an excellent teacher who gives you all the material to pass the course the hard part is being able to organize and keep up with everything and retain all massive amount of material.
She is an excellent teacher
Shes a good professor
My favorite thing about Ms. Nuckols is her passion. I love her discourses the most, they are the highlight of my day. I can forget about the hunger gnawing at my stomach and be swept into another time and place; she's that good.
29. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
No, hard teacher and boring.
No she is a very hard teacher and doesnt give us a chance to take the proper notes in a timely manner. she jumps all over the text book and expects us as students to understand everything that she says
Yes. BEcause she's a wonderful teacher and you can tell she loves to do it,
yes, though her class is hard.
Depends if they want the easy way no her class is difficult.
Yes, even though shes hard. She pushes her students to their potential and helps them to better understand history and why its important.
Yes, she's the best history teacher I've ever had and knows what she's doing and knows how to make the class challenging yet interesting.
Yes I would and I have because she has a really beneficial structure for learning set up through the course. If you really want to learn the information and apply yourself, you will walk away with a better understanding of the world around you I think. I am very pleased with my experience. It's what I wanted out of a college course because there is a lot of spoon-feeding in some of the other classes and without raising the bar, you won't have someone rising to the challenge. I am taking 152 with her next semester because I know if I take it with her, I will learn and enjoy myself and also learn how to be a better more collected/organized student and be able to apply my study habits that I learn in her class, with my other classes.
Yes. The class is challenging, but you learn a lot.
I wouldn't recommend her to students that are looking for an easy ride but I would definitely recommend her to those that really want to learn History.
Yes, sheʻs awesome. Youʻll really learn a lot if you just listen and do your work.
I would because even though some say she is a hard teacher and her test are hard, she explains everything. She basically gives you what she will look for on a test it's just the students job to memorize the material and put it on paper.
Yes, she makes the class fun
yes, you learn a lot
It is a class where there is a lot of work and a lot of stuff in the exams that you might not have fully studied for because you don't know exactly which test of which essays you'll get. So you end up Not being able to fully Understand or remember all sections. It's just a lot crammed into 1 semester. So if someone has memory like an elephant and wants to learn from a good and knowledgeable teacher then I would recommend this class! But if you are the average or below average type of student then I would not recommend it.
Yes, I would recommend her. Her class is challenging, but you know what to expect, so if you prepare you will do well.
Yes. I have learned, and actually have retained much of the information I've learned in her class and I believe it's because of the way she's taught it and tested us on it. Having to write the essays on the exam and having to study all of them helped me to retain a lot of the information. It's an interesting class and I enjoyed it very much. I plan to take another of her classes.
Yes, she is an excellent teacher who give you all the material. But she is not a breeze through class.
Yes because she knows whats sh's teaching ans she uses good study guides
Yes, I would recommend Nuckols to other students. She makes the course work seem relevant and interesting. Nuckols also teaches the material in an organized manner (found in her DWs and Study Guides) that makes the material easier to study.
Yes, because you learn a lot
yes I would because shes a hard teacher and a hard teacher is a good challenge.
Yes! But please come prepared and come very respectfully. No reading newspapers even if you've finished reading the beginning class handout. She expects all your attention and focus to the subject matter, which is okay because she makes it worth your while.
Only if History is your major.
30. Other comments:
I thank her for giving ways to bring your grade higher
Mahalo Janice! Enjoy your winter break!
Thank you Mrs. Nuckols for being a great teacher.
no comments
She is a great teacher. She does care about her students passing her class and their grades. She strongly pushes the SI sessions which helps a lot.
I wasn't too interested in history before this, now I see the practicality of having the knowledge of it. I do enjoy her classes very much.
Ms. Nuckols is a pro and an asset to Windward Community College. I hope she has tenure.

26. How did the instructor show concern for students?
By checking to see that we understood concepts in history through class discussions.
By stressing how important the SI classes were after exams to the people how didn't do so well and giving us a chance to meet our SI instructor. She always gives us the time and date of each session and constantly repeats over and over that we should take the time to go. I took my first exam and got a C and not once did I got to the SI class. For exam #2, I went and took notes and studied everything and my grade raised to a B! She is right on her materials. :)
provides ample info and encouragement of studie sessions. always makes time for appt
Students who got a D or lower on tests had to go to SI sessions.
She makes sure students know exactly what is going on. If you miss class she will make sure you have the material that was handed out in the previous class.
Janice Nuckols shows concern for her students in many ways, she offers many opportunities without giving her students the grade. She offers numerous extra credit opportunities that are easy if the student is prepared and know about her course. Also in the event that a student absolutely bombs a test she gives the student an opportunity to better that grade by going to SI classes and showing dedication to the class as a wole.
Professor Nuckols shows concern for her students and the given material for the course by providing many resouces of information. Whether it'll be SI sessions with Phillip Goff, given us specific pages to refer to in assignments to better understand or visiting her after class to discuss any questions or concerns we may have - her teaching ethics puts a 'light' on a new persepective students can invision verses reading them in a textbook.
She did not really show concern to students because she would not allow extra credit. She also would just tell us to go to the SRI sessions for extra help and re-writes of essays on the tests.
she mentions study sessions and SI to aid those students not succeeding on exams.
Very helpful, encouraged us to see her or the SI if we were having trouble or didn't understand something.
She fought for SI instruction for her classes. I have gotten 2 B's on my last tests by going to SI instruction. Last semester I got 2 D's and a B without SI instruction. I plan on getting at least another B on this Upcoming test. She has by far put in most effort towards student out of any of my teachers at WCC. She cares.
She kept reminding the students about SI and encouraged us to show up each day we had class.
If a student misses a day of class, she makes sure he or she gets updated on what happened in the classes missed.
Janice always helps answer any questions about any events or concepts that anyone in class might not understand. There was a possibility that I would have to miss a day because my husband was deploying and while I knew I might miss something important, when I talked to her about it she let me know that she would make sure to get any handouts she passed out to me during the next class. I did not have to miss the class in the end but her willingness to work with me was greatly appreciated and she even asked me how I was doing after he left when no one else did.
27. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
The course requires a lot of reading and attention to detail but when Janice talks to the class and covers the material, she really knows her stuff and makes topics interesting to students . I have never been more interested and motivated to learn in any previous history class.
I wish we would have more class discussions and get to interact with the class on POV of certain topics, but it makes it difficult when we are cut for time as well.
I liked that she made me actually like history. The amount of work and studying pays off
loved how organized she is, the wealth of information she provide, her willingness to audience differing sides on questions and her vast knowledge of history
She seems to know quite a lot about the subject.
That she pretty much gave you what she wanted on the test, all we had to do was memorize it and then write an essay for it.
What i especially liked about the way Professor Nuckols taught the course was she got me re- interested in math. Going into History 152 I had no interest in history nor did I have a compelling urge to actually go out of my way and research information. As of today I have become reinterested in the course and would like to research history outside of the classroom.
Personally, this is a challenging course to take under professor nuckols standards. But without those set goals I wouldn't have been able to challenge myself as much as I have throughout this course and everytime I saw my score on an exam I knew what I needed to better myself on and felt great about what I had achieved. Professor Nuckols lectures fill your mind with real life perspectives and thats what I enjoyed most about her teaching this course.
I disliked the tests that she gave out because she expected us to memorize too much for the test not caring about if we have other classes with tests. The test material, i feel was not equal. She had us write an essay and a 2-3 short paragraph answer included in the test. I think she should of made those assignments instead of including it on the test. She just expected us to memorize way too much for each topic we learned.
the use of videos is effective along with the articles in giving basis for understanding history.
She gives you all the information that she wants us to study for the test. No surprises when it comes test time we get a study guide on the first day of school that gives us everything she has on the test, but she gives 3 seperate tests. Meaning studying for all of it but only getting a third of it on test day.
I liked the way she talks about the topics for the day. She knows what she is talking about and knows how to get from one topic to another without confusing me.
I like how she doesn't use a textbook to give lecutures. Everything we learn about is in her brain. She refers to the textbook, but does not read word for word from it.
i liike how she is a woman of knowledge!!! awesome teach!!!!
I absolutely love her stories. She is obviously passionate about what she does and her stories make class and the subject matter interesting. I like that she is very organized and clear about her expectations. She does her best to offer small bonus opportunities and encourages everyone to take advantage of those opportunities. The only thing that I sometimes dislike is when we are put into discussion groups to go over our homework because often times many of the other students haven't completed their work and then it essentially becomes just an answer giving session instead of a discussion. Having said that, I don't feel that this is a reflection of her teaching capabilities since it is the students responsibility to complete their assignments. When put into a group that has completed their assignment the discussion is often helpful.
28. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
She is very intelligent and sharp and retains a large amount of information and can just talk from memory and pure knowledge of the topic she is teaching. It's incredible and I've learned more in her class than in any other history class through out my entire academic career. I never realized I had a strong interest in history until I took her class.
Great professor. Right on the topic. Does her best to make sure the lesson is understood well by everyone.
Great teacher! Definitely would take another class from her
she encourags civic responsiility based on an understanding of history.
She uses a lot of visual aids, and I think they help.
She's a great teacher
She is a really good teach, but her tests are just too hard to bare.
seems like a good class.
She cares. Great teacher.
Her attitude makes me feel comfortable in her class. I can answer any questions without worrying about them being wrong. She is happy that students at least put an effort to participate.
She is a great teacher because she has lots of knowleague in the subject she teachs.
she should make topics a lil more interesting
29. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes for sure and with enthusiasm, but not without warning and only to those who are interested in truly learning rather than just an "easy A"
Yes, I learned a lot from taking her course
highly encourage everyone to take her courses. you will learn!!!
Yes because I think she's a good teacher.
Yes, because she is fair with the way she gives test. She doesn't try to screw you over and put something on there that was thoroughly talked about in class.
I would recommend Professor Nuckols to all students because unlike other history professors she actually knows and is interested in her topic. Also on that matter the information she teaches is very relevant and brings about a sense of patriotism.
I would definetly recommend Professor Nuckols to other students because I recall hearing she will be retiring soon and I feel that taking her course will better prepare you for other history courses or give you a great work ethic for your other courses!
I would recommend students to take Janice Nuckols if they are willing to challenge themselves and if they have other eassy classes, but if not i would not recommend her.
Yes, the class seems fairly interactive with many opportunities to learn.
Yes, good teacher!
Everyone....because she is enjoyable to listen to and puts in more than enough effort for us to learn history.
Yes. Her teaching skills are very strong and helpful.I
Yes I would. Her SI sessions really help to further understand the material covered in class.
yes
Yes!
30. Other comments:
I am so satisfied with the quality of this class .
teacher of the century award!!!
Great Job Professor Nuckols I really enjoyed taking your class and if the opportunity arrises I would definitely take another class of your.
the SI sessions seem like a good resource, scheduling for me is a bit off though.
Im glad she is a teacher at WCC. I will be taking her history 282 in the spring as well. If I go the path of History as my major it will be because of her. I am already planning to minor in it.
I'm going to miss her.

26. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She was absolutely helpful and did all in her power (within the confines of fairness) to understand and adjust to students' individual situations.
always makes time and is never critical of students. she provides positive reinforcement.
Janice met with students outside of class to discuss their progress in the class and what they could do to improve their grade.
She made it clear for us to come in to her office if we needed help.
She gives great feedback on writing assignments.
Professor Nuckols showed concern for her student's by providing office hours and her extra down time if we needed help.
She explained questionable topics in detail
Yes, she was always available outsides of class when needed
Super Fair!!! Always listens, incredibly patient.
She holds one on one conferences for students when the final essay are due.
The meeting for the rough draft of the essays help out a lot.
27. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
She brooks no nonsense and moves her class along at an educational clipper. I also like that she has an extensive knowledge that surpasses even what's being covered by the textbook- she can draw parallels from/to modern times and make lateral connections that furthered my understandings of the intricacies of history. Her films are picked with laser-like focus and are all entirely relevant to her point for the day. She is fair, lenient and her quiz system is wholly effective. I also dig that she doesn't have a midterm.
her organization, her keeping up with current thought and discoveries. wealth of knowledge
I have been with Janice for almost two years and I just love her classes! She makes history fun, and I love the way she teaches.
I especially liked how she made history fun to learn about. She would try to connect it to us and show how we would be in that time.
I really liked the writing assignments where we had to write four sentences using one quote from the document. This kept the subject documents changing, instead of writing a number of pages on a single subject. It keeps things interesting.
I always enjoy her class. I liked that we focused on Civil War and slavery.
straight forth and clearly explains course requirements
Her enthusiasm about the subject and the knowledge which she possessed
She is my favorite teacher on campus, the only bummer is I've taken all of her courses anymore :( I wish I could learn from her everyday for the rest of my life (I'm NOT exaggerating, she's that awesome!:)
I like her intensity of her classes, but at times it can be a little overbearing.
i liked that the grading was pretty consistent all the time and clearly explained...i didnt like the amount of reading that had to be done every single class period
28. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
She is inspirational, both as an educator and a historian, intelligent and a good, respectable woman. I sadly don't think words can capture the true nature of this person, and any attempt not only falls short of eloquent, but is almost offensive... with that said, here I struggle: she is responsive, lively, wise, perceptive, humorous, regal, fair and a shining example of cultural sophistication.
teacher of the century
The best teacher I have ever had.
Your a great teacher that is a wealth of information.
She seems to have a lot of classes, but she still does a good job teaching each one individually.
You always know where you stand, she is very detailed in her review/correction of your papers, which helps A LOT!
She definetly knows her history.
29. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
yes- but only smart kids. I wouldn't want to waste Janice's time with someone who can't live up to her high (but reasonable) expectations
i wish every student in America would be in her class
Absolutely. I have learned so much in the classes I have taken, and cannot wait to take another one from her.
Yes because she makes history fun and is very kind.
Yes; because she really gets the main ideas across and she speaks about the subject with passion.
I would recommend Janice Nuckols to other students because you will remember every topic outside of the classroom
Good teacher
Yes, very well rounded teacher
ABSOLUTELY!
I would recommend her, students learn a lot in her class, and it's an unbiased history lesson which often times reveals how history truely happened.
not unless the person i was recomending her to liked to read
30. Other comments:
See you next semester!
Thank you for a great semester!
This course had a lot of reading, but I guess that is to be expected of a writing intensive course.
She is a pleasure to have as a professor.
I'M GONNA MISS HER!
I had fun!

she has her whole course plannd out and she knows what she is doing
She didn't really show concern towards students. Classes are too fast and needs to slow down in order for students to absorb concepts and information clearly.
Always going over the material and making sure we got all the information if it meant keeping up 5 min after.
21. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
She explained lessons very well
She is a very good teacher. She understands History well and can answer so much questions.
Janice is by far the best, and most effective teacher I have ever had. I have learned so much in this class, and it is always so interesting.
She knows what she's doing and is fair with grades.
She has a lot of knowledge.
22. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes, she is very knowledgable and explains everything very well
Yes, because although some of her criteria is hard, you will learn from her.
Yes, Absolutely, she is the best!
yees because her structure is awesome and keeps you on your toes....
Yes, she makes history an interesting subject. There is never a dull moment in her class.
Yes.
Yes, good teacher.

20. How did the instructor show concern for students?
she always gave us great handouts that summarized in key points what we needed to know, and always wanted to answer our questions!
She is readily available for outside help and makes sure to be there to guide you as long as you are willing to do the work
She gives us study guides throughout the course to make sure that we have extra material to understand each chapter that we learned. She shows concerns by offering herself outside of class for any questions.
Bye allowing us to meet with her out of class. Also by making sure we have all the materials needed for tests and quizzes.
She makes sure everyone has the tools that they need to get good marks on the exams.
She takes time to make sure that every single one of her students are on the same track and that everyone receives papers that they might have missed from not attending.
She gave us a lot of material in order to help us understand certain concepts clearly.
Always available for us when we had questions or concerns.
She gives you all the work you missed if you were absent
stopping the student before the end of class, asking questions to see if student comprehends the lecture
She made herself available for help outside of office hours. If students did not understand a concept, she made sure to go back and explain. She gives her students every possible question that she could ask on an exam, weeks prior to the test date.
In my opinion Professor Nuckols may care too much for some students. I get that the every class homework assignments topped with bunny stamps is designed to help motivate students who wouldn't otherwise do the readings. I found them to do the opposite for me, I would do the reading and dread having to fill out the arcane homework assignments.
If you come to her she is willing to use her time to assist. She makes sure that everyone gets the papers she hands out, if they missed class. She is very aware.
Janice Nuckols shows concern for her students by giving them all the options to better themselves. She always finds time to help you or answer any questions that you may have. Janice Nuckols makes sure each student is fully prepared for her exams and sends futher information via email to help students understand the topic more.
she talks to students before and after class. she helps you out a lot especailly before exams. she underlines what she agrees with you or what is right on all your papers so you know the right answer for the test. or she will tell what is wrong and tell you the right thing so that you dont get confused on the test. and she gives out study guides so that you know what to study for the test.
By ensuring that everyone showed consideration for others and that their attention was focused in the right direction.
She was always available outside of the classroom and outside her office to answer questions. Including Sundays!
21. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
I can see you are very interested in the subject you are teaching and have fun teaching it. It would help if you made the calss fun in return so that people like me who dont really like histroy can somewhat better understand it or become interested in it.
my only issue was that, regardless of if i did the homework and put forth the effort, if i wasn't in class to discuss such i wouldn't get points. well, things come up and i couldn't always make it to class but i put the effort to do the hw and turn it in but i got no credit. i mean, i understand getting points for being tardy but not accepting hw is just unfair especially when i took my time to do it like everyone else.
She makes history fun, her passion is contagious
She really knows a lot about this subject and is clear about what she expects us to know for each exam. She preps us enough before taking every test and wants us to exceed in her class.
Shes a good teacher. I can tell she enjoys when people listen to her talk and she has a lot of knowledge in her field of study.
She sometimes over-prepares us for exams. The first exam she gave us enough material for 7 exams and only tested us on a fraction of the material. She also bases way too much of her exam points on the large essays. You may know the material well and get all of the question and answer sections correct but if you aren't a time-based effective essay writer half of your points are blown.
Shes an excellent teacher. You can tell that she really cares about the subject that she teaches and that she knows what shes talking about and makes history easy to relate to and get a better grasp of the idea.
She is funny and makes History interesting.
Excellent lecturer. Extremely knowledgable. Knows her stuff.
Shes a homework drill sergeant
she is a very intelligent lady, and she forces kids willing to learn to push the envelope. she knows each and every student is capable of acheiving whatever tasks she assigns.
Where the books stopped Mrs. Nuckols was able to fill in. She has an ability to give details where a lot of resources might fail to inform.
She was a hard teacher who covered a lot of information and went very fast in class. It was all mostly her talking which is hard to pay attention too for a hour and a half
As much as I dreaded the boring homework sections I really enjoyed the lectures.
She is an amazing history teacher and I wish she taught other classes so I could continue on learning from her. She is extremely intelligent and knows how to break things down so that others can understand.
Janic Nuckols is a tough teacher. But it is only because she is pushing you to do your best and help you learn more and understand better about history.
she knows her history really well. all her examples and videos help and relate real well to the topic. she made history fun to learn.
She is very energetic regarding the subject matter and walks one through the information in a very systematic manner.
Great teacher. Knows her subject and knows how to teach it.
22. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes, Great teacher. knows her subject well No, Moves at a fast rate.
yes! she is a straight forward teacher who wants you to learn because its interesting and the material is so important
Only if the student is willing to work for their grade.
Yes because she is clear about what she will have on each test and gives you the study guides to help prepare for upcoming quizzes. If the student takes the time to study and do the work that she recommends then the student shouldn't have any problem with passing her class with a decent grade.
Yes, shes is quite challenging and if you can keep up in her class you can pretty much keep up in any.
I would recommend her to students who are good timed essay writers because they will get good marks on her exams.
YES! Shes a great teacher and very funny! You are guaranteed to have a a fun time while still learning everything that's important.
I would because I know exactly what she expects from me.
Yes. Thoroughly covered course materials
YES. She makes you understand what you are learning and how you can apply what happened in the past to our current situation now. She also uses different mediums in class daily, group discussion, films, handouts, etc.
not really she gives so much homework
yes. i would recommend janice nucklols. her style of teaching is very challenging and forces you to use your mind. taking her class i have noticed that my way of thought has changed for the better.
I would definitely recommend Janice to other students. Those students need to realize that it is a class that is work intensive. But with that work comes a tremendous amount of learning. She clearly explains her expectations. I am leaving this class with more retained historical knowledge than in any other history class I have taken.
I would only reccomend her to serious students who are interested in History who are willing to do the work and study hard, as well as actually attend the class.
Yes, although she is tough, she is very organized, you learn alot in her class, she prepares you well for your exams and their is always somthing new being learned every class time.
yes because she takes you step by step for everything and explains a lot. and you will learn a lot of history in her class.
Yes, as I enjoyed her teaching style and format.
Yes. Made class very interesting.
23. Other comments:
Study guides are nice clear and to the point. very helpful to the exams. A better review for the exams would help. maybe an interactive game
:)
She really encourages everyone to take notes and I've been voice-recording her lectures which she allows and that has really helped me to review at home what it was I learned in her class.
Great job.
She should re-evaluate her exam points make-up. Maybe put less weight on the large essay.
I learned a lot from her class and I know I will remember what I learned.
If you are looking for an easy A, you found it. Operating under her expectations is very easy. She gives you the test.Do the reading, do the work, take notes, ask questions and show up to class. If you want to learn an enormous amount of knowledge from one of the best teachers around, people should sign up for her class.
Phenomenal
none
Overall this was a great class and Professor Nuckols enhanced my desire to learn. It was most interesting being corrected on so many beliefs that I had held to be true. This may sound strange, but I would have liked to have gone into even greater historical detail. Thank you, RW
Tests require a lot of preparation, more so than other classes I have taken, which helps you to really understand the subject and gives a sense of accomplishment if you do good.

20. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She occassionally will give a student a second chance. She is always available to help students that need it.
She asks questions often, she tells students what they need work on or remind them if they are not doing so well in the class.
She set up appointments with students to critique us on our writing and clearly outlines course expectations and grading system, utilizing gradebook on Laulima to keep us up to date on our current performance in her class.
The way she taught this course, there was a trial and error period before every type of assignment. She gave us a sample test before we did any of our tests so we knew what to expect. Our first 3 homework assignments we were allowed to revise and resubmit in case we didn't do what was expected of us, and we learned what we had to do on the rest of the assignments. Our major paper assignment we turned in a rough draft, and had a required meeting with her afterward. This method of teaching shows that she truly cares about her students, and wants them to succeed.
by providing help whenever needed.
she would meet with us outside of class
Always emailing updates and info for assignments, available in and out of class, friendly and awesome to talk to.
She will ask questions if understand. She does however, address students infront of the entire class. On serveral occasions I witnessed this to others as well as myself. I personally feel that if their is a concern she should pull me aside instead of embarrassing infront of entire class.
She checks to see if we understand the material.
21. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
She is very passionate about what she teaches.
Classes are work intensive but otherwise it is paced very well.
She has an in depth knowledge of her subject, is always able to answer our questions and her passion for the subject matter makes it extremely interesting for us. Her supplemenation to the subject matter with articles and other first hand material really adds to our understanding and interest.
Some students may say that Professor Nuckols is the hardest teacher at Windward Community College, but I believe she is the most encouraging. She pushes her students to learn, and learning isn't always easy. I have taken two classes from her, and she is the best history teacher that I have had in college. I highly recommend her, and commend her for maintaining high standards.
If every teacher I have ever had taught their classes the way she does, I would have a 4.0 GPA. I believe every class should try to mimic the way she designs her course outline and her teaching method. The majority of classes I have taken over the years, you start out not knowing whats expected of you, or how the tests will be formatted. So your first homework assignment or test you do poorly or sub-par on because you don't know whats expected of you. So now since you did poorly on the first test, you already set the bar lower because that first bad grade makes getting an A that much harder. Sure they tell me I'm going to take 4 tests and do 10 homework assignments in their syllabus, but do they tell me what the test will look like or how to do the homework properly?
a very good teacher. knows a lot about history and makes learning history very interesting.
Good teacher. Knows a lot about her subject. You will learn so much in her class.
always organized and is very passionate. helps you figure out the world and how we got to where we are now. very inspiring.
She needs to be more aware of how she talks to students in regards to issues or problems. I don't think she is aware, or maybe not aware it can be demeaning, but needs to pull students aside, instead.
I enjoyed her class.
22. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
I think she is an excellent teacher and yes I already have.
Yes I would recommend Professor Nuckols to other students. She loves to express her liberal viewpoints but never lets it get in the way of her teaching. She always gives the full story from both points of view.
Yes because she really gave me a hunger for knowledge on the subject and a desire to research and understand things that I had never been interested in prior to this class.
Definitely!
Yes, she knows her subject and is able to make class time interesting and go by quickly
Yes. By far the best learning experience I have had in any setting. I knew what was expected of me, and she took a generally boring subject and made it enjoyable for me.
excellent history teacher.
Yes
Yes. Gain lots from her teaching.
yes because she tells you whats expected and has easy class assignments you just gotta do them
i would and have recommended Ms. Nuckols to other students and say that they will learn a lot but that it is hard work.
Yes, of course. She is an excellent teacher who has a history that corresponds to this subject. I enjoy learning about this course. History is not my subject, and it doesn't interest me, but she made me want to learn. She was able to show how this time period has affected our society and govt today.
Yes, only if they are disciplined to do all the homework assignments though.
23. Other comments:
great speaker

If I had discovered this teacher sooner I would have taken all of her classes.
Enjoyed this class very much
awesome awesome class. Ms. Nuckols has always been one out of my two favorite teachers!!

The only thing that I didn't like was that we tended to end class a few minutes after our scheduled time.

19. How did the instructor show concern for students?
she is always available at her designated times to talk with students who have questions.
a little. really you are the one who is in control of what you do.
We have conferences that are one on one that tells us where we stand and what we need to work on.
She was always available for me whenever I had questions or concerns.
She always reminded us that she was available if we needed help with studying the material or if we needed ideas on how to study.
very diligently
She would offer students help with studying for the test. She offers to talk to students about their grade and offers extra credit.
Professor Nuckols takes time in class to explain chapters and terms as well as time lines to students who missed class and also to those who have a a hard time understanding as well.
She does not really show concern for students. You have to ask if you want help she is not going to come up to you and ask if their is a way for her to help us.
She made sure we got everything we needed and explained things more than once.
Yes she offered appointments after each exam
She asked us question on the subject at hand, and if we understand the topic, and explained what we didnt understand.
She made sure that she went through all the material that she said was going to be on the exams and even gave us study guides!
She gave time to answer questions and explained the answer in the easiest way to understand.
she accepts people coming into her office to help with any questions
If someone wasn't on their game she would get on their case like it was high school, except put them in a situation where they had to make the decision to start doing their work, or stop wasting their time in class. You have to be prepared for every class.
outside of class help, explaining, answering questions
She was always available to answer any questions. If you needed help with something she was right there to help you.
on out homework and exams she will write personal notes. This is so helpful!
She ridiculed a couple of students who didn't have the answer to an easy question. I felt she could have handled it a little more professionally move on to someone who knew the answer (what the students were trying to in an attempt to rescue the person). It was callous and shows her length of service in the UH school system.
She would ask us questions to see what we already knew and further explained anything we couldn't answer as a collective. She emailsed us occasionally as needed to clarify, change, or inform us of something.
20. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
She is a very straight forward teacher, who follows her syllabus to the letter. She has loads of information that she remembers by heart. She really knows her stuff.
-
She is very understanding and helpful.
Very intelligent, witty, and KNOWLEDGEABLE! She delivers the information in a clear and understandable way.
She is an amazing teacher. I wish I had better memory so I could take in and retain all of the information she provides. I find her tests difficult but reasonable.
She truely demonstrate what college work is really like. Lots of text and articles to read and then expects students to answer the questions. If not, that just proves how people is not serious about their education. Too much work but absolutely helpful in learning what she teaches.
She is passionate about history and really knows what she is talking about. She tries really hard to make her students get what she teaches.
She has a lively uplifting presence which makes her class interesting and you won't fall asleep during lectures.
I love the structure of the class. It makes it easier to get organized.
I will always remember her she is the most learned person I have ever met.
your an amazing history teacher:) and i liked when we were put into groups to go over homework etc. it really gave me a chance to get to know my fellow classmates and get a feel of the classroom and to speak up more if i have any questions.
Shes a great teacher and you can really tell that she knows what shes teaching and has a passion for it. She's hilarious and really enjoyable to be around.
I like how she used different methods to learn the subject and not just teach everything straight from the book.
Though we did a lot of readings for the textbooks and I didn't look forward to doing the homework every night, classes were actually entertaining. I liked being able to see what we were learning about in video documentaries nearly every class and something about the way she explained history to us made it funny and interesting.
very good teacher
Her exams are quite difficult, but as long as you really read everything and study hard they should be fine. She's a great professor and a super smart one. I would never be able to store that much history knowledge in my head, but she's amazing.
She is an amazing instructor!
She gives a great lecture. Very informative and entertaining at the same time. I have learned a lot in her class this year!
I think she cares about passing on knowledge in a way that is meaningful and relatable.
21. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes, only if your ready to do the work, in this class you will have to do the work and learn it. You can't just complete assignments just to turn them in, you have to learn it and remember it. It is a tough class, but you will learn so much in her class. You need good time management and be very organized to prosper in this class.
Yes, shes a good teacher all you have to do is keep up with your work.
yes, if you want to really learn history.
I would because she explains how English works in ways I could understand.
Absolutely! Although some may find it challenging, it is well worth it. Lessons are clear and thorough and fast paced. As long as the student keeps up with their note taking and reading assignments, they have an opportunity in this class to learn a great deal.
I would recommend her to students who have great memory and a respect for history.
it depends on the student
Yes, if they are a history major.
Yes because she is a good teacher and is passionate about what she teaches.
Yes. It is a fast paced course, but if you are well organized and take the time to study and write your essays ahead of time you shouldn't have a problem.
I would not recommend students to her because her class is really hard, and if you fall behind its really hard to catch up.
Yes, the class is very organized and challenges you to do well.
Students have to study to make it so I would tell them to come prepared to be filled with knowledge
I would reccomend her to other students, but with the warning that she does give a lot of homework, and there is a lot of reading. her class sessions are interesting and she incorporates lots of film clips and media that use visuals to cement ideas in our heads better. She also gives a study guide, which tells us exactly what we need to study for for the exam, so there is no question of what we are to be tested on.
yes, her class is very structured and organized.
Yes, because she's such a great teacher and goes through all the material and is able to explain clearly and make sure that we all understand the material that is being taught to us.
Yes, she explains the material well and shows examples in movies, handouts, and newspaper articles.
she gives a lot of work, so not for any lazy people
I would only recommend hard working people to her class because it does take a lot of work and memory. Lazy people can not pass that class easily, but if you do your work it can be worth it.
yes I learned a lot from this class
I would if you are truly into history and up for a little challenge.
Yes, and I have.
If you want to go to a class with the purpose of learning something this is the class for you! I found her to be an extremely interesting person (just be sure to check sources other than what she says because sometimes her personal agenda (especially when it comes to women in history) gets in the way of the truth. I would definitely take one of her classes in the future!
Yes, because she has helped me learn more about world history in one semester then I have ever learned on my own pre and post grades K-12th.
22. Other comments:
i hate that if you are 5 min late she gives you no points for anything.
Merry Christmas!!!
I loved this class! I want to take every course she teaches.
Study hard for the course. If one is not willing to study hard, don't take her class. However, if one does not take the course, one will miss out on the passion she has for teaching history.
Thank you, I enjoyed having you as a Professor this semester.
i hope to take your 152 class. oh and i apologize for going to the restroom during the homework discussion (i really had to go lol)
good teacher!
It was an honor to be a part of her class.

19. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Prepared notes on readings and video while out of state (family emergency).
constant reminders of what's on upcoming tests, encouraging discussion of polarizing subjects, using what i'd call a "clear and fair strictness"
Janice Nuckols provided all of us with a clear outline of the course in the syllabus. Nothing was a surprise and everything had a smooth as well as fair system. She took the time to get to know each of us by name, as well as go/read through our work thoroughly and give constructive feedback. She would update and remind us about important things via email. She gives extra credit options from the beginning of the course and also rewarded students extra credit for consistent attendance.
She made sure every student had all the articles and assignments that they missed and briefly went over what he/she missed.
She has made sure we all get the materials needed to achieve high grades. If there is any outside issues, she has shown concern I how we are handling it.
She outlined everything that was needed to do well on all exams in order to give students that best possible opportunity to do well. She explained in detail what was required, so students knew what they needed to do in order to make a good grade.
mrs. nuckols encouraged each of us to ask questions as well as collaborate with one another to engage ourselves in the material.
She is very willing to work with her students and listens to them. If they have problems, she tries to find a solution with you.
Letting students attend makeup classes if they couldn't make it to class in time for DW discussions, offering many extra credit opportunities.
Makes sure we know what's on the test beforehand.
She emails/Laulima pretty regularly, she writes a lot of comments on each assignment and quiz/exam - I know exactly what information I am missing and what I should be studying. She makes it extremely clear what she is looking for, in this way she is doing what she can to make sure we pass.
Met with me outside of class to discuss course material! She is a great teacher:)
She stressed the importance of certain materials pertaining to the exams. She literally said, in black and white, what is on the exam and what is expected of the students. She equipped students with all the information to succeed in this course.
She made sure we knew we could stop by her office if we had any questions outside of class.
She took the time to assist the students. whether it was pulling them aside to clarify concerns or allow individuals room and to express their independent ideas or questions.
20. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
I do consider Mrs. Nuckols a extremely good teacher however I felt the reading / writting assignments in the beginning of class were often rushed. I often found it hard to complete the assignment because there was just not enough time. Even if I came 5 minutes early to class and got a head start on the reading I often found myself having to rush thru the questions or having to finish it during a film she was showing that day. A couple of times I just didn't turn it in because I couldn't even finish reading the articles. Perhaps passing the articles out the class before, giving the students a day to read and then giving them the writting assignments the next class may be more useful.
it was very easy for me to give the strongest marks for this instructor, as i genuinely agreed with each statement. She's a very down-to-earth instructor, seamlessly moving from lesson to lesson. She's quite aware of her limited time with her students, and her task of teaching them the finer points of 500 years of world society. She performs this task very well, just make sure you fulfill your end of the deal to do your work... it ain't that hard. One thing i love about this class is the complete lack of B.S.
I really enjoy her enthusiasm in teaching history. She is very passionate about what she teaches us and it makes me more interested in learning about it too. I actually feel like i learned so much more about history in her class. Her system forces you to really study. Plus she's not boring at all.
S
Janice's teaching style makes you interested. She is tight and challenging on the tests/quizes which is fine. The hardest part is that the subject matter is not kept chronological. For example, you will be talking about the late 1800's, then 1940's, back to the early 1900's then the next class you are in the 1980's and 90's. It's very difficult to keep things in chronological order skipping around the world and time periods.
She is a very exciting teacher to learn from and I trust her fact and knowledge.
She is a good teacher. Her class is hard, but if u do all the work and really study u can do well. Itâ??s hard to sit and just hear her lecture, and it would be a lot better if she could do more interesting and interactive learning.
This was one of the most informative classes I've ever taken, and I enjoyed it immensely. Professor Nuckols seemed extremely knowledgeable on the subject and I feel I've walked away with a much better grasp on world history than I had coming in. I would take another class taught by her in a heartbeat.
If a student asked a question in class she would often answer in a condescending tone, almost as if to make them seem like they were not allowed to ask the question in the first place. She seems like she knows a lot about her subject but it's difficult to follow her plans. She skips around a lot in chronology.
mrs. nuckols made the class very interesting and the outside materials she brought to class definitely helped me understand the assignments and course material.
Although she's a very good teacher and speaker, her class is very hard. If you don't have a good memory, this class is not for you.
She is an excellent, experienced teacher. This is the first history class I've had that was genuinely interesting to me.
Knows her subject VERY WELL.
At times the course material seems like an overload, but the class is very educational and I feel like it is worth my time coming to that class. Janice is very well organized and knows her stuff inside and out. It is refreshing to have a teacher so prepared.
She is such an interesting teacher, and makes history so exciting!
I liked that Janice Nuckols was always prepared, the students should never feel as though they are lost. She keep tabs and flows well with her material.
I like how consistent her personality is during class sessions. She prepares students for excellence in her course. Students have the option of grasping the context or leaving the context. She highly encourages class participation and shows her passion for the materials discussed in class. She out right wants her students to succeed and be prepared for the rest of their college career
One of the best history teachers I've had.
I love the way she runs her class. It's so organized, functional, and fair.
She expects a lot and grades strictly but is a good teacher and covers material well.
I paticularly appreciated her format of class. It was very convenient and clear what and how to do it.
21. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes. She is extremely knowledgeable on the subject and is a very good teacher.
Yes, because she knows a lot about history.
A resounding yes. One of my favorites.
I would definitely recommend others to take history from Janice Nuckols. She is a great history teacher. Her love and deep knowledge of history will encourage any student to learn it the best they can too. She is a fair and organized teacher. She grades fairly and acknowledges your efforts.
Yes, I would proffessor nuckols is great teacher she teaches well and makes sure of it that you understand what's happening inclass
Only if they want an extremely challenging course.
Yes,if you enjoy a strict college professor then she's your gal.
Yeah but It is a very hard class and I think most students would rather have a more interactive learning experience.
Yes. She is informative and uses the textbook, lectures, and media in a way that synthesizes all the information well.
I would say that she is a good teacher but her methods are not easy to comprehend.
yes, mrs. nuckols uses examples and methods that help students remember and understand the material.
It would really depend on who asked.
There is a lot of homework and readings, but they're not difficult. The tests, however, are very hard. This class is very interesting and you'll learn a lot in it, but I'd recommend the class only if you can keep up with the work and are prepared to study hard for it.
Yes. A challenge but learn a lot more than you expect.
Yes, her teaching style is not for everyone, but anyone who takes her class can learn a lot (in detail) about history
YES...her course is challenging and interesting
yes I would, her in depth knowledge for things that have happened and are currently happing is useful to every student
YEs. She is clear and precise in what is expected of the students. She is predictable and professional in her conduct with students. She will teach you everything significant in History and give you current related issues that support her classroom discussion
Yes. The class is very interesting and it's easy to do well by just showing up and following the material.
YES, SHE'S AWESOME!
It depends on your learning style. She gives a lot of homework, which is good for learning the material but very time consuming when you are taking four other classes.
She demands a lot from her students. Janice wants to see critical thinking and full involvement. But the interested student will bennefit from her class.
22. Other comments:
Thank you Mrs. Nuckols
I enjoyed what i learned in history. Very interesting. I'll admit this is the hardest history class I've taken so far, but i felt like it helped me become a better student because it was so demanding ( for me), yet the work was set up in a system i could follow.
Good
I really enjoyed the class. Thank you.
I am taking another course from her next semester because she makes history so invigorating:)
She is a great and understanding teacher.
She allows students to make the decision to succeed or slack. She use techniques of positive reinforcement to encourage success in the course. For those students who are slacking, She encourages success by holding expectations firm in unbiased.
Very good class.

19. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She expects a lot but also gives a lot.
She makes sure that everyone has their materials and puts a lot of work into providing a more than ample amount of resources and information. There is effective use of class participation in the class and I think everyone feels they can ask anything they want to know.
She always seemed to be really concerned about us asking about what we think of different things during class.
Janice Nuckols is a very good History instructor. I have really enjoyed her History 281 this fall semester and have learned a great deal.
If for some reason you miss class she will send you an email to make sure your ok and give you the material you missed.
She made a point to get to know her students and create a happy class environment where everyone can feel free to interact in the discussion.
yes she does, this past semester has been really tough on me family wise and janice allowed me to turn in my assignments a little late.
She gives enough time for the homework and even though she doesn't allow late homework I think that's a good way to keep everyone in a good consistent pattern other than letting procrastination take root.
Giving us extra credit for filling out this.
She offered to aid student unable to print assignments. She offered to work with students before and after classes. She provided materials for students who could not afford them.
20. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
A wealth of knowledge - I found the class very interesting.
She is extremely well-organized and packs a lot but not too much learning into each and every class. She is also like an encyclopedia. It is obvious that there is a tremendous amount of effort on Mrs. Nuckols' part to make her class the best, yet it is not overwhelming to the student, everything fits just right.
I think she was a great teacher but did assign a lot of readings but i figure thats expected for a writing intense history class.
Janice Nuckols is always organized, has time for her students and very helpful.
great teacher
She really knows her history! And she makes sure the students understand from her discussions, readings and homework.
Best.... professor...EVER
She loves her subject and it shows when she is teaching. She makes the subject interesting and inspires students to do their own research on topics that interest them.
21. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
yes
I already recommend Nuckols to everyone because it's the most effective class I've taken at WCC, and by far the best history classes I've ever taken.
yeah i would recommend her i thought she was a good teacher
I would definately recommend Janice Nuckols to other students in taking U.S. History. She makes learning fun and gives extra reading assignments to suppliment the study. Interjection of videos and DVDs to help in the understanding of the discussion has been very helpful. Janice is always available during her office hours to be of assistance. Thank You!
yes i have taken all my history classes with her because she is easy to learn from
yes, i would recommend this course to other students. though the course material is fairly easy, you learn a lot. She keeps things interesting and to the point.
Yes, if you want to learn a lot, especially more details of history. But you have to be able to put in the work. There's a lot of reading and homework but it can be interesting. If you're lazy then this is not the teacher for you.
Yes, because I think she's a fair teacher, easy to understand and really loves the subject she's teaching.
Hell yes, I would.
Yes, because she makes history interesting and doesn't demand the dry and boring need for memorizing dozens of dates and events. She digs deeper into the background of historic events and brings them to life.
22. Other comments:
With the bare amount of information you need to read/learn to pass the class, you can still learn a great deal, but beyond that there is a whole wealth of information that is or can be provided to you by Mrs. Nuckols, and I think that is really how a teacher should be.
I think thats it
I have really enjoyed Histoy 281 class this fall semester and look forward to the spring semester of U.S.History II also to be taught by Janice.
needs to explain assignments more clearly.
I wouldn't mind taking another class with her in the future
Nope
I thoroughly enjoyed this class and would highly recommend Mrs. Nuckols to others!

20. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She did but she didnt. The one thing she did allow was the students to make up the exam if missed but not allow them to make up an exam if the get a bad grade on it.
She makes sure every student is fluent with what we are talking about and hearing about each class session.
By telling them that they're not doing so good and to make sure to take notes for the exam to bring up their grades...
Making sure everyone knows what is expected of them.
she encouraged question and made sure we had all the information and material to be prepared for class and test
she gives students handouts that they missed in class when they weren't present
she makes sure that students understand material
She takes the time to get to know her students, and offers her time if it is needed.
We were able to contact her via email and phone to let her know about any problems we had. She made herself available to everyone.
21. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Would not mind to know her out of the classroom but not a teacher I would like to have in the future
She is a teacher I highly respect.
She's awesome, gives a lot of info that we need to know and learn...
A FANTASTIC History teacher.
You don't pay her enough.
I enjoyed having her as my teacher, she knos her history and is a funny lady
nice teacher and knows what shes talking about
I really enjoyed having Professor Nuckols as a history instructor. She is always prepared, and finds ways to keep her students interested in what is being taught...Rather it's through group activities, or watching videos. She makes the class fun, and gives you an opportunity to gain the most from the course.
She is an awesome teacher, I learned something new everyday from her.
22. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
No...if you are not into a face paced learning environment and paperwork it is not for u. Especially if you cannot remember a lot of information
Oh yes I would. She is completely knowledgeable on History. I remember almost every single thing from her class. I really enjoyed her History class, and I am sure others would too.
Yes, because she's a good teacher that will make your learn well.
Yes, she is the best history Teacher I've ever had, made me want to take her class again.
yes, very well organized and knows her history, great handouts and clips to make history a bit more exciting.
yes! she may seem like she is a hard teacher but she really isnt. she helps you with the essay questions during class time for the final or mid term exams.
Yes. I personally think her style of teaching is effective. She clearly explains what is expected of you as a student, and treats you as an adult. She stresses what is important, and provides homework assignments and study guides that are very helpful for her course.
Yes. She knows her stuff and is really into her teaching.
23. Other comments:
She goes over material too quickly. Expects students to study for the exam but instead of telling what the student needs to study for that is going to be on the exam she makes them study for what may be on the exam which confuses the student. It would help if she gave tests in between her exams. She would be an ideal teacher for a student who has been in college before but not for a student who is just beginning college.
thank you

20. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She had many open discussions and always answered all questions quickly and with the utmost knowledge. If she did not have an answer she would look it up and get back to you.
she will even go as far as to email students who have missed class, providing attachments of the next day's work. Incredible concern for her History students
she taught
She tried to get everyone to share what information they got.
She tries to make sure that all the students understand the material.
always made herself available for extra help and ALWAYS responded to emails quickly.
she was always willing to help out with any concerns with the subject matter.
Always encourages students to visit her if they don't understand. Makes time for students if they ask for help.
Prof Nuckols is very passionate about history and about each student. Her goals is to not only teach each student about history but to assist them in experiencing what it may have been like to live in that time period. In addition to that she makes connections from historical events and ties them in to events in our modern day world and how history has influenced the people and places we know today.
Asking them to see her at the office and also make extra credits
Always saves the course materal for the students that miss class, she also always understands if you cant be in class for an emergancy
I was really sick around the time of my first exam and she allowed me time to take the test a day later. She was very understanding of my illness and was genuinely concerned.
she asks if there is need for further explanation and takes the time to thoroughly delve into the subject. she uses examples that are relatable and stirs your thinking.
She made sure that everyone had the reading materials for the day and homework.
she always made herself available to students for help or suggestions.
She always made sure everyone did their homework; and she always made sure to email all of us on important things for class.
I believe that she amount of handout materials she gives out is in indication of how much she desires her students to understand the bigger picture and broaden their minds.
She makes it clear that we can even call her at home for help. It shows that she is really there for the students 24/7.
Uhhmmm.
She seems to push everyone to the highest level of their capability, and expects attentive listening and note taking during classes. She is very interested in her material, and I think that interest is passed on to the students. While I understand her classes are much more demanding than the other History teachers, I feel I've learned a great deal about History. Also, I have learned how to study in a much more effective way.
N/A
She shows her concern through her discussions in class when she practically tells us everything that we need to know for the tests. It shows how much she wants us to succeed and really learn the material but she also formats the exams to where we NEED to really understand the material and take what she says seriously.
21. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
She is very knowledgeable on the material she is teaching and she makes sure that those who do not understand any part do before she moves on. usually she can inform the student in under three minutes.
She is very passionate about the subject, and incredibly knowledgable.
awesome history sessions
Nothing
She is a well prepared teacher, ready to teach the class.
The best teacher I ever had. Make no mistake, she is not easy but she also is not unreasonable, she gives you everything you need to succeed and you will learn.
She has what she does dialed down to the last minute.
I really enjoyed her class. Although she is a tough instructor and expects alot from each student, I don't think I would have learned anything if she wasn't so tough.
Very intense and is likely the most knowledgeable instructors of her subject matter than any I have EVER known. Excellent teacher!
this was my favorite class regardless of what my grade may indicate!!!
She is extremely organized and professional. Very passionate and has a zest for life and her field of study.
She is very knowledgable and passionate of what she teaches. Mrs.Nuckols makes it so intresting to learn. And I appreaciate her keeping us on our toes..Especially in the exams.
She is a wonderful, awesome teacher
I really enjoy her class and she is an amazing instructor!
She is very passionate about history. She always kept my attention with the way she spoke and the way she chose to present information. She would show us only the important, exciting points in videos, rather than making us watch the whole thing. She really kept our discussions moving and left no time for us to go off subject. She is extremely knowledgable of her subject.
AWESOME teacher!!! although some may find her hardcore, i love her teaching methods. she is a no-nonsense kind of person and sticks to her guns! she explains what is required and there is no confusion. she states what is expected and has her class very structured. actually i think more teachers should have their classes structured the same. she gives you all that you need to pass the course and makes the material interesting. i have acquired an appreciation for history and great respect for all that has come before us. it is all truly quite fascinating!
I think she is an excellent teacher!!!
Shes a very good instructor. I would recommend her to anyone.
Professor Nuckols is a passionate teacher. She doesn't like wasted time and fills every moment in her class with learning. She is fair and does not play favorites. This is the second course I have taken with Professor Nuckols and will be the last. In the first I was just short of an "A" and she was sad that I was so close, but fair is fair. If there is one thing I could say about her it would be that she is an excellent educator and she has earned my respect.
She's hardcore. She knows a lot of detailed info.
Exact definition of 'Excellent teacher.' Nuckols does her job very extremely well. She uses all types of methods (video, handouts, lectures, group discussion, class discussion etc.) to teach and spells everything out very clearly. She makes it easy to learn and is so organized and structured that all the average student has to do is well, do what she says. Everything is so planned out. She knows so much information and can just say all these numbers, dates, places, and statistics at the top of her head so she is so wellinformed about what we are learning. Great Teacher!
I think she is one of the best teachers I have ever had because she expects alot from her students. Sometimes the workload of the class would seem overwhelming, and maybe a little confusing. But that is the nature of World History; everybody didn't wait for everyone else to stop before they continued on. For me, keeping all the different countries and their events in order was challenging, but I feel I learned how to mentally organize far better than before the class. All in all, I'm happy to have had the opportunity to learn from a really good teacher.
N/A
Some people may think her class is hard but I think it's good that she gave a lot of homework and challenging exams because it made me really learn a lot. I think I learned the most from this class than any other class in college so far.
22. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Definitely. She breaks the material down to help the students and she makes sure that they understand. Her class is hard with all of the material one must know, but she makes it very easy to learn.
I sure would. However, if the student is not prepared to do a significant amount of work and studying for tests, they will not reap the benefits of learning from this most capable teacher.
yes because she a good teacher
I never had any other history teacher so im not sure.
If the student likes a fast pace style learning, I would recommend this class because there's constantly worksheets to work on and a textbook to read and different things to learn each day.
Absolutely. She knows her stuff and is a great, well organized teacher who is dedicated to her subject and her students.
No, her class was really difficult. Her essays on the test were so in depth that no matter how hard I studied it was impossible for me to get the grade that I wanted.
She is very approachable and easy to talk to. I would encourage anyone who is interested in learning to take her class. She not only teaches what is in the textbook which doesn't do much for history. But she has stories that go along with the time. I've told her before that she should write her own history book. Our text doesn't explain things like she can.
Yes, if they can keep up the pace.
yes - she makes this interesting and relevant
Yes, she is organized, helpful, professional, knowledgeable and efficient.
I would recommend her to other students because shes one of the locals. She has alot to say and respects the fact that were students trying to understand what she has expert mind for. Which is history. She is not ashame to answer any question, I think she revolutionized my idea of what a history teacher should be.
Yes!
Yes, because she is passionate about history in every aspect, I really believe she is smarter than our history book
Yes. She is very direct and serious about history. I appreciated the way she taught the class and felt glad that she loved the material she taught.
highly recommend! she is structured and has high expectations...she believes in her student ability to succeed and will help you reach success!!!
Maybe. Her course is VERY intense, and although this does make for a very good learning environment, it can be a very stressful course when combined with several other classes, jobs, etc. I would love to have the time and stamina to fully engage in this class in a way that meets the work demanded, but unless it was just one of a couple classes I was taking, I would not recommend it. Bottom line, when deciding to take this class, one must weigh between two options: An above average amount of knowledge of History vs. Quality of life. I love to learn and so I am glad I took the course, but it was very stressful and mentally taxing.
Yeah, i would recommened her to others.
I would because she knows her stuff and I think this is the one class where my attention was actually captured and i enjoyed, plus I learned a lot!
yes because she cares about her students and tends to help them throughout the semester.
Yes, but only if they really want to learn and are willing to work. If they are looking for a "cruise 'A'" they are barking up the wrong tree.
Yes, because she has A LOT of good info. No, because she had a lot of info. for you to retain so some people might not like that if they just want to show up. It depends on the type of student...
Yes. She makes it easy to pass. You just need to pay attention.
It depends on the person. I would warn them that she is demanding in terms of workload, and expects alot from her students. If someone were looking for the "easy A", I'd tell them to take another teacher for the class. If someone is interested in History, and can handle the workload, then she is a great teacher for them.
Yeah, if they like being yelled at to close the door.
If the student is hard-working and willing to learn a lot then yes, I would.
23. Other comments:
Thank you so much for your time!!
In my experience in this class, there was not enough in-class study or review sessions. Though there were in-class group dicussions, they had to be cut off shortly because there were other topics that needed to be discussed. There was not enough time to discuss other topics in the group discussion.
Thank you Janice!
We're going too fast. There has to be more time.
Janice is compassionate and caring... I appreciate that most in a professor especially as a non traditional student with so many roles and diversities in my life... Mahalo, for all that you do!!!
One love..shalom...respect one another...god bless.
nope
She gave a lot of work, but I feel that this was the best history class I have ever had! I have learned so much from Mrs. Nuckols and hope that I have more teachers with as much passion for their subject as she had.
This is NOT an easy class. But you learn a lot.
Good Job Teach!!
DOING GREAT!
Thank you for being such a good teacher! I just wish I wasn't so lazy and actually did the work... :)
Regardless of my final grade, I know I have learned alot and I feel more confident in my abilities as a student. When I started her class, I wasn't sure I could handle the workload expected of her. There is so much information that would be confusing if it were not for her ability to "put it into laymans terms". All in all, a difficult but worthwhile class.

She is always there for students if they need help in anything.
She writes in comments and arrange confrences to ensure that students are on the right track.
She has allowed us to do some extra credit if we need to increase our grade,
Ms. Nuckols kept the class very well informed in regard to the class expectations as well as any upcoming assignments that we had. She was honestly interested in our perspectives concerning history and how it has affected our social and political outlooks.
She took the time on the first day or two of class to allow us to get to know eachother through an interactive worksheet and a class concentration game for names.
by making sure that students turn in their work
She was always available for her students. We were allowed to contact her at any time. She was updating us on things that she thought would be helpful to us.
She gives us LOTS of advance notice for tests and homework on the syllabus.
Professer Nuckols shows concern to her students by getting into contact with students through email.
Made sure everyone knew exactly what was expected of them and what they needed to do to complete this course. We could check our grade at anytime online and could email here with any questions also.
By knowing all the information to the fullest.

21. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
I really like her classes. I seem to learn a lot in the classes I take with her, and she makes the subject matter so interesting. History isn't usually a fun course for me, but ever since I took a class with her, I want to know more and more about history. I learn the most in her classes.
Very Enthusiastic about the subjects she teaches!
she made the class interesting my talking about interesting topics, and making it seem more relatable.
Ms. Nuckols' American History course was by far the best history course I have ever taken. She is not only extremely competent in her knowledge of history but she also goes far and beyond the conventional methods used to dissect the past. Just about every class she had relevant material in addition to the textbook readings, including video clips, news articles, editorials...she even broke out a film projector that could have very well been used to teach students in the 1950's, because she felt that the film reels that she had somehow acquired were the best medium for the topic, regardless of the old, dusty machine. Our almost daily writing assignments kept the class well-informed and helped us to develop our own thoughts and opinions about the periods we were discussing. Unlike many professors I have encountered, Ms. Nuckols was able to answer most every question thrown her way with confidence, and if she coulnd't answer a question (which was very rare) she simply admitted so, which was very refreshing. I have yet to meet someone with as much passion and incredible knowledge as Janice Nuckols has for American History. Her enthusiasm for the subject is certainly infectious and I can honestly say that I have a renewed sense of inspiration for a topic that I had already considered one of my favorite studies.
Good teacher with an obvious enthusiasm for history.
she's great
I feel that we learned a lot about our history. I knew of events in history, but now I feel I understand it a little better. She was a great teacher and very fair.
I love her. She should teach at the high school level so kids can LEARN STUFF.
I like how she gets into conversation about the topic she gets engaged with the students.
She presents American History from a realistic perspective and promotes questioning of what has and is happening around you.
I really learned alot in her class and I would definatlly take another one of her classes.
She is a very strict teacher which will not let anything go. She is also very liberal and has a liberal bias in her class.
Very articulate, great teacher, interesting subject matter
22. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes!!!
I would definitely recommend Janice Nuckols to other students becuase her class is great. It is fun, interesting, and a lot is learned.
I would because she grades fairly and simply.
Yes i would because the class was very interesting to me, and i think that her teaching style fits with mine.
If you consider history to be one of your interests, take anything that Janice Nuckols teaches, you won't regret it...refer to the above.
I would definitely recommend her if I were asked my opinion about her class. Interesting lectures, videos and the work isn't extremely strenuous for a WI class.
yes, especially if you love history, because she shows genuine interest in the subject.
Yes, because I feel that their are many people who have misconceptions about history and they will find this class informative. I like how she lays out the whole semester, its black and white. It is a lot of work but you will get what you put in to the class.
Yes. A lot of people hate history classes because all the teachers do is give names and dates and expects everyone to retain information all the same. Her teaching style is VERY conducive to learning.
Yes, because I like how she teaches the subject by different means like playing videos, getting into group discussions, etc.
I would recommend Janice Nuckols to other students because her course is clear, concise, and structured to promote student accomplishment.
Yes,it really show you where our country has come and how far we have come.
Yes, she will challenge you to do your work right and will keep your english skills current. If you do all the work she will give you an A. It wasn't that hard of a class.
Yes, though material can get pretty heavy at times.
Yes... I enjoyed the class greatly and really feel that the material used outside the book was of great importance!
23. Other comments:
Thank you, Ms. Nuckols, for an incredible course.
Teacher does not drone on and on in a monotonous lecture about history. Enjoyed the interesting facts about presidents that she insterted into her lectures. As a history class student I feel like it's important to keep the attention of your students and to see effort to keep us interested is VERY refreshing.
Chris Chong is a bitch.
Great course!
I really glad I took this class I have taken two of her classes before and dropped out of them that first day, but when I walked into this class she seemed to be excited about teaching it.
Two thumbs up!

20. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She is aware who attends class and who missed a class and she provide the materials missed. She encourages the students to make an appointment with her if they are struggling or didn't do well on their exam
by asking them to see her after class if they did not do well on exams.
her side notes on tests and exams
She offered to meet with students outside of class who did not do well on exams.
says we can come in and ask questions
Showed good concerned for students
i f the students needed help outside of class the instructor was always avabible.
Ms. Knuckols made herself readily available to address any and all concerns I had this semester. I stopped in at her office a couple times and she was very helpful.
She would always go over our homework to make sure we had them right. If we did bad on a test we could go to her so we could discuss it and to gain knowledge and to better understand the right answers.
she asks several times if we understand the material
She would let us know that our grades are posted on laulima and she gave us her office hours so that we can be able to meet with her either after class or by an appointment
Talking to them in private about their grades and plus she was very helpful explaining the answers that are going to be in the Exams.
In the beginning of the semester, she asked everyone for their opinions on which essays they would be interested in discussing in class, and only chose the top essays. She also makes herself available for conferences if necessary.
the instructor made sure we understood the material by asking questions and bringing up disscussions to help.
she taught
Professor knuckols, strives to make it easier for each student to do well on each exam by preparing us adequately. When the class does not do well on the first exam she works even harder by providing even mor outlines, notes, visuals, and discussions, so that we amy understand and do better on the next exam. She works just as hard (if not harder) as we do to see us succeed.
she made sure we understood all of the topics and provided us with a lot of information on each topic that would help us prepare for our exams.
she really did not... it was up to us to be wise about what we do.
21. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
talks down to student, degrading, dont feel comfortable talking to the teacher, doesnt talk with respect
The positive points is that she keeps you on your toes, but on the flip side, sometimes alittle too intense and makes you feel intimidated. I felt like I needed to be like a robot and intake all the information and retain the new information. There was no room for mistakes. It seems like too much information and not enough time to absorb it. I am doing fairly well, but this class really stressful.
The instructor tends to rush through excercises in class. I think her class would be more appealing if she slowed down and did not have us do so many things in class.
shes uses up class time to the last second. very organized and sticks to a strict schedule of how to use class time
Very informative teacher. She knows what she is talking about! But when it comes to religion she is very bias. I got the impression that she enjoys rediculing Christianity due to her bitter background. But over all I learned alot and that's what matters!
very good organized and precise learned a lot
Great teacher
really knows what they were talking about
I give Ms. Knuckols credit. History was very technical as far as facts and and dates were concerned. She showed that she was very passionate and was respectful to each civilization we learned about. I learned allot in this class.
She is always willing to help and answer questions. She is very nice to everyone. She never ever got angry with anyone.
AWESOME! i learned sooo muchh..it is very interesting to learn about other cultures and their beliefs. my favorite was the mayans and aztecs. with their human sacifices.
although the course material is confusing at times, she explains it so that it is less complicating
Excellent lecturer. Like her class and hope to see her next semester for the HIST 152
It seemed that many of the students weren't really prepared for English 100, so lots of the content that was covered seemed trivial... not to say that that was her fault. It's great that she tries to help all the students to be on the same page, but the actual writing content was not a challenge at all.
I really liked this instructor. She made me not only understand the material but she also made me enjoy learning the material.
it was a pleasure
Janice is one of the best instructors i've ever had. she really know what she's doing. i think her students really respect and appreciate her and her teaches.
She makes history fun... its actually a lot more exciting than I remember in high school and a lot more interesting. She uses a lot of resources (i.e. videos, articles, etc.) but its her enthusiasm, her humor, and her own excitement that engages me in the time periods we learn about.
Ms. Nuckols was excellent! She gvae me a lot of help outside of class and she had a lot of good advice. Even though her class is tough I learned so much and I would take it again!
she is a great teacher and does her job really well.
She is very fun/ and loves her history.
22. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
no, not very helpful when you want answers, does not make this subject fun.
I would recommend her, but I am not ready to take another class from her because it was too stressful. She is a great teacher and that's why I signed up for her class, but she was a little too intensive for me. It took me five hours everyday to do my homework and it sounds crazy, but I am not exaggerating.
yes and no. She is a difficult instructor however if the student is willing to study hard and keep up with the reading the instructor is very good and will end up teaching the students a lot. She is just intense and lives up to her last name...
No, she is a little hard...but still a great teacher if you have the motivation to read every night at home.
Yes I would. If you want to learn history Knuckles is great but don't take too many classes while taking hers if you want to have time to study and score high on her exams that contains heavy amounts of material to obtain.
yes I enjoyed the class they need to be ready to work hard though
Yes I would recommend her as a teacher
yes because you can learn alot in their class.
Yes, because she really knows her history. She doesn't at all need to read out of a textbook. Its all in her head. She is a great history teacher with no doubt.
yesss because you will get much knowledge out of it!
no because all my friends don't like doing a lot of work haha
I strongly recommend her to other students because she knows too much about history even to the very detail and interesting parts too
Yes, but they need to feel comfortable in discussing things.
Yes i would recommend this instructor because she teaches the course materials very well.
yes, shes good at what she does
i highly recomment this instructor to other students. she really opens your eyes.....
Yes, because its very hard not to like history, when you're hearing it from professor knuckols... she is a one of a kind!
Yes I would. Because I learned so much!!! Each class was interesting and full of information!
i would definitely recommend her to other students because they would enjoy having her as their teacher.
Ummmmm.... yeah...if they want fun and like to watch plenty videos.

20. How did the instructor show concern for students?
The instructor makes sure that each student is prepared for every test and quiz by giving them helpful information.
JAnice goes out of her way to help make extra study handouts and always tells you what you need to do etc..
She taught her students very well.
Ask questions if we understand, and she can answer any questions if we need help.
She always give as time to help each other.
she explains it to us
The instructor showed concern for students as she would make sure students understood material. She would go over it with passion.
By answering questions and by giving us handouts if we miss class. Letting us know what's the agenda for next class, so we can be prepare.
As the semester progressed she assisted the class with notes.
she tries to make us do our best always
She kept in touch with them in or out of class to see if they knew they missed class, and she gave students papers they havent recieved--its like she jnows what each student has or what they need. Shes on it!
by helping them when they ask for help, and by asking questions to the students.
Whenever someone comes late, she quickly get them up to speed. Connects events from history with modern thinking/concepts/slang.
The instructor makes sure that all students understand the lessons completely,allowing ample time for notes,and questions to be made.
She gives us a heads up on what to study for and supplies students with detailed notes for the tests.
She went from student to student asking questions and making sure non were falling behind considering the class was once a week.
By allowing to students to make up work if they let her know prior.
I think Professor Nuckols shows concern when she feels like it. If she is in the mood, then she'll ask if we need help with something; however, if she doesn't feel like helping she'll ignore a student.
She emails everyone and gives personal phonecalls about grades.
The teacher is always asking questions to us to make sure we understand and is always having hand written handouts for us explaining what she wants us to know
at the first week of school she encouraged us all to come to her office and get to know her. made sure we knew that we could withdraw and all our options.
she always asked if we are taking notes and she always tells us whats going to be on the exams.
21. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Very well organized, caring teacher
I wish I had a note taker.
Wow, she really really loves what she does. She knows so much about history, its shocking!
Good Job
awesome
I would like to say she is tough but awesome as a teacher.
She is a good teacher and she know her subject, plus her class is easy to understand.
I have taken multiple history classes and had to take this one again because the state of Hawaii said this was a requirement. I am glad that I was in this class because I achieved a new perspective. The old movie clips that she showed that were part of history really made an impact.
shes a fair grader
She is highly knowledgable and committed to this subject and thats what makes her an even better teacher.
she knows what she is talking about.
I don't like the essay questions on the exam, but she give you so much information in class they arent hard at all. iguess multiple choice questions would make the course too easy.
The instructor teaches at a maverick caliber,even the most boring of subjects is given an interesting spin which allows for even the lowest level of history buff to completely understand lessons.This allows for the majority of the class to do very well.
She's tough but we learn a lot!
Extremely organized and really knows her subject.
She really enjoyed teaching her class. She also was very open to students suggestions.
My professor has opened my eyes about the history of the world, also I didnt know how ignorant I was, I thought I knew plenty.
She needs to SERIOUSLY relax and not be so intense with her students. She could also show A LOT more respect to her students because she can sometimes be very rude towards the students.
Very resourceful and informative.
The instructor really really knows her history and the material. you can tell she has a passion for it and is very credible for all she says. she has helped me become more passionate on the matter
I found Janice Nuckols to be my favorite teacher here at Windward because she was fair! outlined everyhting you need to do and no surprises. She also taught accountabilty, probably my only instructor to do so. I really liked how she was firm and no students could try to argue their grades or late homework or anything. She was consistant.
she is a very fast paced instructor.
22. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
I would recommend this instructor because she treats every student fairly and makes sure everyone is included. She provides information that is not only useful, but also interesting.
yes excellant instructor even though others might find her hard her organization makes the class a lot smoother an easier
I'm afraid I can't because I wasn't sure if I can tell them about how well I did.
Yes i would. But she has really hard exams!
Yes,coz She`s know her own subject
yesh she is challenging and fun
I would recommend this teacher to everyone because you "will" learn in her class. Taking History from her was more than I expected. It was great!
Yes because her class is quite easy as long the student come to every class period.
I would recommend her if the student is willing to do the work. There are many students that want to skate by and this is a class that requires hard work.
she is a good teacher very tough but fair be prepared to work hard
Oh yes!! Definitely a thrilling course and teacher to experience, she'll get you pumped for history!
yes, because if you really want to learn history and dont just want to pass the class then this is the teacher for you.
yes, mixture of videos and misc.material thats subject-related help you get a really good pic.of stuff i've never heard of.
Yes absolutely,personally the class is one of the most interesting social studies class I have been in.Only my previous Social studies and Psychology teacher was able to make it this interesting for me.
Yes if they like to be challenged and no if their lazy.
Yes because you learn so much. Although, I would warn them that the exams are pretty intense.
Yes but I think this class considering its a late one should be taught twice a week instead of once. There is just so much material to be covered and explained.
Yes, because I have actually learned about history, the work load is necessary to understand history itself. I plan on continuing taking more history courses thanks to my new interest in history.
No, because she has an attitude problem and doesn't show any respect towards us as students.
Yes, if you want to learn a lot. No, if you don't like to take hard exams
I would definitely recommend this instructor to other students because they would not only be interested in the information but also learn it in a fun great way
if you want to learn then i would recommend her, and if you are going to put in the time then yes. If you only want a easy A then I would not recommend her. personally I really enjoyed that class.
no i definately would not. its a hard class.
