    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a very interesting course that examines both the successes and failures of our country. It also has interesting sidebars that talk about the arts and how the both showed the culture at the time and changed it at others.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed learning about our continually changing culture. Things like how 1800s America fell in love with plays and Shakespeare in particular just fascinate me and I didn't know about them until this class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be diligent and make sure you have all of your assignments done and it will be great.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course used "A people's history of the United States" by Howard Zinn.

    Course highlights:

    The text book for the class shows history through the eye of people who have lived it and was a refreshing change to the way i had previously learned history.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Enjoy it. I have never had a history could like this before or since.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to any students interested in a history major, or who just want to learn about the past of the United States of America. Professor Coleman is great at explaining the information and replies to discussions to help you better understand the information that you are learning about.

    Course highlights:

    I learned many things from taking this course. This course has provided a much more in depth description of American history that I learned while in high school, but at the college level. In high school you learn about all of the things Americans had done in the past, but not all of the reasons why they did those things and who exactly did them.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Advice for any students who are considering this course, be thorough, read the chapter, and write long discussion posts. Take all of the time given when taking tests, it allows for you to understand the questions, Professor Coleman occasionally throws trick answers into the tests.
