How it is possible to not make it boring I do not know, but she does it amazingly. At the start of the quarter I was certain I was going to drop this class over another history class, but I found that I could not--the topic was so interesting (which I never thought it would be). I would suggest to bring a laptop (resist facebook) and take notes. Do not buy the books, they are in the library, so save money and check them out! Do your best to read but if not, take really good notes because she does go over them in class (which was a great plus, I never have had a prof. do that). A lot of friends were not convinced in the topic of the class when I would tell them the classes I was in but it was only because they were not in it. Truly a great class---go to lecture, take good notes and you will do fine on the midterm. Final consisted of two 2 pg papers that were from the books we had to read (read them--i did not and it made it really difficult).
Professor Bernhardt is an amazing lecturer! Her class was never boring, as hard as it may seem for a history course. The material was really interesting, and her delivery helped a lot as well. The readings are generally summarized in lecture, so pay attention and take good notes if you want to just skim the material.
