This class was tough.
This course is required for education majors, so it can be hard to get out of, but it is very difficult. Very reading heavy and not a lot of collaboration in the classroom. History can be very content heavy and hard to get through if it's not your passion, but this class takes it to another level.
If you are prepared for the work load, and willing to let your other courses suffer a bit while your attention is on this one, you can learn a great deal. I took advanced US History in high school, but this class gave me an in depth understanding of American history that I am very proud of.

Advice for students:
Always read. Even if you think you can skate through the discussion without having read the articles for the day, when it comes time to study those readings for the final, you will be in a lot better shape having time to discuss them in class. Skim the assigned books, but be prepared to go back over them for essays.
