    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Although there is a lot of reading, the lectures she facilitates in her class are very engaging. She is very fascinating and full of energy. Do not be afraid to engage her with your own ideas she will challenge you, but she only wants to push you to think of all aspects of an idea. Dr. Thames-Taylor was a lot of fun to have in the morning. She is very personal in her lectures and soooo passionate about history, black history, and women's history. She gives you many opportunities to learn and to succeed. She loves what she is doing and it shows.

    Course highlights:

    The history of the United States, with emphasis on major themes, ideas, and developments: nationalism, sectionalism, imperialism, industrialism, and others.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read assigned chapters before class, skim them again before exams, and take notes. Do not miss classes. Participate.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course teaches students to look deeper into history. It shows the true side of American history, from America's origins to present day. It goes in depth to illustrate how America has impacted the world and itself.

    Course highlights:

    I've learned, so far, about the beginning of colonial America and how the settlers interacted with Native Americans, each other, and their home nations. I've also learned about the American Revolution and its implications, as well as Andrew Jackson's significance and the impact of the issue of slavery.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You definitely need to do the readings. If you don't, you will fail. Also, the course website posted on D2L is insanely useful. It has practice quizzes and flashcards that will help you truly learn and retain the material.
