    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is an active advocate for Indian Education and rights. It was such a joy to learn from someone who truly connects and care for their subject

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about living life from a different perspective, which is a definite must in order to be an effective teacher. I also learned about the American Indian culture. We were able to watch videos and learn from Chiefs and members of tribes. They told stories and the lessons they learned and how we can apply them to life today. It was very intriguing being able to access and witness this culture first hand.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed, you have to be invested in the readings and videos. Really make a connection! It not only helps you pass the course, but it really opens your eyes to things you may not have considered before.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    In South Dakota, as it should be everywhere, Indian education is necessary to graduate. Professor Simpson is fully invested in you, as a student, learning compared to just taking the course. I was able to take his course online and it was easy to navigate and communicate with other students. He made the class interesting and applicable to your field of study which motivated me to work hard and care.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a lot of knowledge on Indian customs. My professor directed us to a website where we could watch true tribe members tell their stories, lessons, and traditions.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice is to be involved. When a professor notices you, it makes it easier to communicate with them when there is something going on in your personal lives. It is not a hard course only because it is so interested. Your opinions are valued in his class. Make personal connections. Make this class important to you because it is an important part of America's history.
