Because I'm not a big fan of your vaguely worded and open to interpretation online class assignments, especially when they're very harshly graded.
Rub some dirt on it
Who is the professor and what is the course? (I graduated phi beta kappa in history)
Rosentreter, US Military History. I've heard good things about him, but so far this class is just not up to snuff. I'm a history major too, so I'm not just some clueless sorostitute complaining about actually having to do work.
Damn - here I was hoping an RCMB thread about a military history class was started by a sorority girl
Rosentretter was awesome, what kind of horseshit are you turning in if he's grading harshly?
I had him for civil war. I was a history major too. The guy is awesome... And I had no problem in his class. Aced it if memory serves me correct.
My advice to you is that if you have to write any papers, try to put a Michigan spin on whatever it is you have to write about. The guy is pretty flexible and has office hours.
Capt.Gingersnap, don't be angry with me.
I had him for civil war as well. It was one of the best classes I had at MSU. He is very passionate about his work and is willing to help you out whenever you need it.
I'll echo the response above and say you must be turning in some horseshit.
Whoever said the pen is mightier than the sword obviously never encountered automatic weapons.
So Summerhill doesn't teach civil war history anymore???
That guy was an awesome prof
4 states of being in the cannabis society ------------
Which one are you??
Wow! Sorry to hear this. Rosentretter was my favorite instructor. I was in his Michigan History, Civil War, and US Wars of the 20th Century (Special Topics) classes. Loved every one of them even though there was a lot of writing. Online classes are very different though. I always felt I worked harder on those than on campus classes. I hope you get it worked out. Rosentretter is a very good instructor and was always open to feedback. Just make sure you have your poop in a group if you go to him.

This is similar to a lot of what I've heard. I had Knupfer for Civil War, loved it, and Rosentreter seemed like a similar guy. So many people like him, I'm assuming I'm just not "getting it".
Basically, what happened is that he just got our first papers graded now, a couple days before all the other papers in the class are due. Now I'm concerned about those other papers, because the directions he gave are very vague, yet his grading on the first paper made it seem like he was looking for a very particular style and emphasis. If this were a semester long class, I'd have more of a chance to get what he's after, but everything in online courses is pretty damn rushed.
Does Coogan still teach in the department? I had him in the mid 90s (US foreign policy since 1917). I wasn't a history major, but am curious what his reputation was like among history majors.
