Professor Ford is a mean woman. She graded my final exam SO harshly after making it take home (which was harder than the actual exam). When I asked her about my grade, she was pretty cruel in her response saying that the grade she gave me was "generous", in her words. I would not recommend taking this class to my worst enemy. It was SO boring, the textbook was stupid and her tests were just plain old annoying and she graded too harshly. I feel badly for anyone that has to have her as a teacher because it simply just isn't worth your money to enroll in one of her classes. I wish her all the best but seriously, if you care about your well being for 10 weeks, don't take her horribly boring class. Like history of France? come on. Could that be more boring?

I highly recommend taking any course taught by Professor Ford. She is a brilliant professor and her lectures are fun and engaging. I have taken two upper division classes with Professor Ford and I think she is the best professor in the history department.

I recommend attending every lecture, taking detailed notes and completing all the reading she assigns. The course load is very manageable and her exams and essays have no surprises. She wants students to do well and if you put in the work, then you will not only receive a good grade, but you will actually enjoy learning about French history.
