Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this class because Dr. Nooe is incredible knowledgeable of the material he is teaching and he will challenge you to become a better student. He is a tough grader so consequently it forces you as a student to really put a lot of thought and effort into your work. You can't slack off and jot some nonsense down on the paper for your work, it takes thought. It's a great class that ties together the larger picture of Southern History in topics over American history.
There were many things I learned. As someone that has lived in North Carolina my whole life, I take pride in knowing where I came from and knowing the history of the land. This class was great for putting together the actual structure of Southern history and tying it all together. This class explains why things are the way they are in the South. It sparks intelligent thought and discussion and is a great class for a history buff that is proud to learn about a vital part of American history, the South.

Advice for students:
For the larger assignments, be sure to actually read the books and form your own opinions that you can back with evidence from the material. Give yourself enough time to read the readings, the language structure of the time we study can be confusing to read quickly and understand. In class, pay attention more than copying the slides, all of the slides for notes are put online. Study in groups and talk out the history and concepts discussed in class. This is a very interesting class with a lot of information to be absorbed so take it slow!
