    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course far more in-depth than most overview history classes are, as the professor does not gloss over the motivations of the historical actors--the lectures cover not just the "what" and the "when", but also the "why", and that is the catalyst that catches and holds my attention.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course was that I took the class for honors credit, so I researched and wrote five additional papers, as well as standard course work. The most fascinating bits of information were found during my own research, such as the extreme conditions of the early settlement at Jamestown, amplified by malnutrition, starvation, and Amerind raids to wipe out the English. Far more interesting than just knowing founding dates, and founding settlers, is learning that settlers were dying from eating corn, of all things. The same corn that the natives were eating with no trouble! That certainly wasn't covered back in grade school!

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not procrastinate with Dr. Levine, or he will bury you. Begin reading the books he assigns the same day you buy the book. Read the textbook, even when there are no assigned readings--the text has its own insights that Dr. Levine does not include in the lecture, because he is not known for spoon-feeding knowledge; you have to be willing to get the information yourself.
