    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.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course, especially the seated version, is so informative and enlightening. Mr. Barnes will always be able to answer questions and I learned so much about American history that I didn't know before from Mr. Barnes!

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were the lectures and being able to constantly ask questions without feeling dumb or stupid. I also loved learning about Indigenous Peoples in America!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure that you plan ahead and don'tput off things until the last minute. Always do your best on papers and ask questions!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course and with this teacher because she makes class very fun and interactive. She dresses up, talks a lot sometimes, and enjoys teaching everyone in the class about history. She likes to interact with the students

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the first explorers to come to America which I loved learning about because it's fascinating to know about your country's early stages. Also, about the first presidents of the UNited States I learned about them and how they came into office.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Try your best and just do your work and you will be successful.
