This class was tough.
This class may seem easy because of the "101" in it's name, however, this class was one of the harder classes I have taken so far because of the amount of readings and lecture style. In this class all the notes come from vocal lectures, no power points that many are used to, and many readings. This makes it harder but also forces you to dig deep and understand the material yourself and understand it better in the long run.
This class was very interesting once we got to the material, rather than just definitions of the eras in the beginning. However. with this particular professor the focus was mainly on Latin American civilizations rather than all of the world civilizations.

Advice for students:
If you are planning on taking this course I would definitely make sure you are going to as many class lectures as possible, this is where a bulk of the material is and there's a chance you will be lost if you skip. Also be prepared for long reading assignments, although it may be easy to decide not to read, it is extremely beneficial for the course to read the articles. Finally, be prepare for an essay based class, being that most and homework assignments and exams are essays.
