He is legally a genius. This guy really knows his stuff. The only way you can learn from him though, is if you really pay attention and take notes ever class. I did not do this and it is my own fault. Don't complain about doing poorly in his class unless you take notes every single class.
He is going off topic. Nonstop. It's nearly impossible to learn from him, because taking notes is near-impossible when he decides to rant about current politics (which happens at least once a class) because I simply cannot keep track of the concepts I'm supposed to be keeping track of! He also assumes that once he says something *once*, you'll remember it forever, so he hardly reviews and is very impatient when answering questions.
Dr. Shapiro is the best teacher at Trinity. Yes, he diverges and goes off topic, but his "rants" are all about real world events that we should really know about. Clear, interesting, smart, and funny. I've learned so much from his class.
He apparently claimed that ADD is just like AIDS. Which was the funniest thing. He is really boring.
He is easy in that you can easily delay your assignments. However, he is a hard grader and grade locks.
He used to rant about random stuff, but for the last couple of months he has stuck to the curriculum. He is a great teacher.
FUNNIEST history class with his much appreciated digressions
im not a fan of ancient historyand thats not gonna change any time soon. but shapiro made history bearable with his funniness and sidetracking to current events. hes really nice too. THANKS DR SHAPIRO
Dr. Shapiro is a legend. Although his students learn tons about current events no matter the course content (frequently to the detriment of the course), I wouldn't have missed his class for anything!
knows everything about history AND it's an incredibly easy class
Smart guy that has done good things...... god SOOOOO BORING
Anybody who doesn't ejoy shappie's class doesn't value breadth of knowledge/open explanations. you're a self-involved faschist if you see fault in his plitics
i consistantly fall asleep in each class... he tests pretty hard and doesnt teach the material, he is the worst teacher i've ever had
It's sad that you delete expletives, because they're what's necessary to describe this sad excuse for a teacher.
Words can not describe how awfully terrible Shappy's classes were ... ugh
