    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    In high school, history was one of my least favorite subjects. I could never remember the names, dates, and boring details of past events. However, Mrs. Martin not only made history interesting, but broke it down in ways that made each event discussed memorable. I loved learning about the actual truths of America's past and often discussed class topics with friends and family outside of class. She made the course easy and fun. I look forward to taking more of her classes in the future.

    Course highlights:

    One of the biggest highlights of this course were learning about the actual events that took place in history. For example, in high school, students are taught that the Pilgrims were the first people to come to America. However, it was the Indians who occupied the land since the beginning and were only kept from taking their lands back due to having the majority of their population wiped out from the diseases brought over with the Pilgrims. Another mind-blowing lesson taught in high school is that Christopher Columbus, who supposedly "discovered America" and has his own American holiday, in fact never reached American soil. He never made it past the Bahamas and was also a horrible, cruel person who often wiped out any foreign populations unknown to him. These facts among MANY others were just some of the interesting things I did not know- or even care about- until I took this course. It was interesting to go back and see what America was really built on and why things are the way they are today.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not wait until the last minute to turn in your essays. Remember to ALWAYS cite your work. Don't sweat the exams- I actually enjoyed them.
