    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you are needing a Social Behavioral Science, this is the course for you! Mr. Barnes did an excellent job covering pre-history through the Civil War era. He included the migration to America, the colonial and revolutionary era, and wars leading up to the Civil War. He posts all his assignments and you can work ahead if you wish!

    Course highlights:

    I have a better understanding of the political and cultural development for America. His 500 word written assignments really made me think about different issues. At first, I was concerned about having to write the papers, but the information he shares in notes, videos, and external resources made the writing come with ease.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read all his material! This makes his tests and written assignments much easier if you are familiar with the topics.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. Stumpf is a beyond excellent teacher that strives to show the importance of history and how it continues to affect us today. This course will make you yearn for more history and enlighten your mind to the every day world that surrounds us. You will actually have fun learning that you won't even realize it is school work.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course include attending a Holocaust Remembrance Event that included either survivors or children of survivors narrating harrowing tales of such difficult times. Another highlight was getting the opportunity to interview somebody aged 60 or older about what they remember throughout history. It is incredible some of the stories you hear from the people you interview because they are things we read about in a book, yet our interviewees lived them. For example, I interview my grandfather and he told me about the World War II sirens that went off warning of a possible nuclear attack or even the story of where he was during the JFK assassination.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I think that the absolutely most important thing in this course is to listen. When a student becomes fully engaged in specifically this course, everything else comes easy. Also, it is important to remember that we have many debates on topics so it is important to speak your mind because the classroom is a safe space to speak your opinions free of judgment!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Helms is an absolute gem. He's funny, sophisticated, blunt, and very enthusiastic. He really knows his history! There is a lot of reading from the awesome textbook, but his slides and review games are also pretty great. He is willing to work with you as long as you are willing to cooperate with him (he loves 'please' and 'thank you'). If you are a history buff, Professor Helms will not disappoint. If you're not a fan of history, Professor Helms will turn you into a believer.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the beginning chapters from chapter 1 to chapter 5. I learned a lot of new things about the different nationalities that made their way to America and the textbook gave me many other perspectives. What stuck out to me the most was in chapter 5 when it began to talk about how the slave trade started in America.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get ready to read everything: the textbook, slides, comments, assignments, and some other things. Get ready to work in groups every week. I suggest brushing up on your people skills.
