Always Do the Reading
Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course teaches the basics of United States History, from 1492 to 1877, which I believe is essential to becoming a well educated individual. Knowledge of history is absolutely necessary in the process of making wise decisions in life.
I learned about the motivations and circumstances of the societies that came together to eventually form the United States. Starting with the Spanish and Portuguese, and later England and France, I learned the ambitions and goals of the colonial powers that had a stake in the land that would later become the U.S. So far in this semester, we have made it past the American Revolution and into the drafting of the U.S. Constitution.

Advice for students:
You must keep up with the textbook readings. When assigned historical documents to review, work on understanding them until you do. A good great in this class depends on having a good understanding of historical figures. When writing papers, pay attention to grammar.
