    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Truly, I am not a "history person," but I thoroughly enjoyed this course mainly due to Professor Shelden. She came into the lecture class always excited to teach, and showed much enthusiasm towards the lesson for the day. However, I gave this course 4 stars because while Prof. shelden was wonderful, her Teacher's Assistants were not very beneficial. Personally, my TA was unable to answer most of my questions that were a part of the lectures, and this made studying a bit difficult at times.

    Course highlights:

    Teleology is where you think of history starting from the present to the past. Prof. Shelden taught us how to not think teleologically, and this helped bring the past events in history to life. Rather than saying "the Civil War happened because…" she taught us to say "this event was one of the contingencies that led to the start of the civil war because..." Her way of teleological thoughts allowed the class to see history from the point of view of the people during that specific time period.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I, of all people, know how tempting it is to skip a lecture class because at OU, the lectures do not count attendance. Skipping class will not penalize your grade in the short-term. However, it will affect your exam scores because the content on the exams correlates directly with the information given during a lecture. Do not skip class, pay attention during lectures, and find a study group. If you do these things, you will end the class successfully.
