This was a mind - blowing course for me, and really showed me how my classes in U.S. History in high school were sorely lacking in the actual facts of this era. I love the way Dr. Bell asks questions as he goes along, thus engaging the students in discussion. His slides were varied and interesting and his presentation very lively and easy to follow. He has an eye for interesting details which he uses in his lecture. Really great class!
Excellent presentation by Dr Richard Bell!
Dr. Bell is such an enthusiastic and lively instructor I feel he could make any topic interesting, much less this fascinating topic of Slavery and the American Revolution. His slides are well chosen, his lectures well organized, and his eye for details that would engage a class is fantastic . I love the way he engages the class with questions all the way through the lecture, and the Q and A period teaches us as much as the lectures themselves. As a former university lecturer myself, I can highly endorse Dr. Bell and this course!
Excellent class. Dr. Richard Bell is a wonderful instructor!!
This is the second course I have taken by Dr. Bell and it was as illuminating, engaging, and compelling as the first one. The course material lies squarely in the area of Dr. Bell's expertise and he brings an effortlessness to running the course along with enthusiasm, passion, and deep understanding of the subject matter. His excitement about the material is contagious and kept me wanting to know more. I love how he inserts four questions for us, his Context students, in each class session. It keeps me on my toes and I love how he responds to the questions asked -- with real delight. He is a gem, a brilliant scholar who is also intensely humanistic.
