Quarter: Spring 2019
Grade: B+
Feb. 19, 2020

This class was harder than I expected for sure. Summerhill is clearly very knowledgeable on the subject, but I found his lectures to be somewhat confusing and hard to follow. He has slides for each lecture, but much of the needed information did not appear on them. However, if you can take good notes in class, familiarize yourself with the subject, and do all of the readings, you will do fine in the class.

I had Summerhill for Modern Brazil last quarter and I loved him so I took him again for this class. He is a great professor but I found this class to be quite challenging just because I had a hard time keeping up with which country is doing what. The material is kind of a lot in this class because all of Latin America is quite broad and difficult to keep straight. Summerhill does a good job of teaching and kept me engaged through lectures. He also had all of the readings except one posted online so you don't have to pay a fortune for books. He's an outstanding lecturer, the class can just be a little tricky because of how broad it is.
