I have known Chris Shaw when I worked as Program Associate Social Science at AKESP for the collaborative project of Global Economics, Economic Awareness Program for AKESP schools. He along with Mr. Juegen introduced us to the Moodle learning approach as well. I liked his repertoire with all of us despite the difference in our ages, gender, cultural backgrounds and financial class.He would not waste a moment in helping out if it was within his means and ability. Great person to know.Sajeda Rashid

this guy is great. After my freshman year final (yeah history 100), he baked me a cake for my birthday (that day) and gave it to us. Now you may say I have a biased opinion because of that, but he is honestly a great teacher and I am looking forward to econ under his guidance.

i had his for econ. hes really nice and funny in class but he grades a pretty hard grader. he is knowledgeable about the subject, but perhaps not the best at teaching. make sure you talk to him about your papers if you want a good grade

The best history teacher I have ever had, Dr. Shaw knows how to lead discussions better than anyone. He really listens to what his student's say and care about their opinions. My favorite!

One of the worst. Subjective, unfair, unclear grader. Gets mean and nasty. Ilogical. Hides behind a veil of kindness.

Made History 200 a blast. His creative ideas for class and assignments were great and class in commons was awesome too.

Dr. Shaw is by far the best history teacher I have ever had. He made class fun and cared about students - I actually looked forward to history every morning.

Dr. Shaw is a great teacher. He really knows his stuff and leads good discussions. He is a picky grader, but also a nice, understanding person.

Dr. Shaw is awesome. I had him for one term of freshman history until he had to teach another econ section in the winter. We now have Drench, who is, although easier, often annoying and prone to making numerous corny jokes. I want shaw back!
