    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course for everyone! It is easy to understand but challenging at the same time. I now have a greater appreciation for history from taking this course with Ramona Shelton.

    Course highlights:

    The professor projects the lesson as a story. It makes you stop and think that all of what you are hearing actually happened and is not just something interesting to read about in books.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Students must take notes. They are provided with a vocabulary sheet so it makes it really easy to follow along with the lecture.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher was very thorough and was well informed on her topics. She had slide shows and visual aids to help students get a better understanding of the subject.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the key terms. She provided a list of key terms to help students keep up during the lectures. The tests were the best part. We had ample time to take the test, and the questions sounded similar to the statements she made in class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Buy the book because some questions on the test come from the book.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course because a fundamental knowledge of history is absolutely crucial to be able to make decisions in the present and the future for an individual and his or her community.

    Course highlights:

    I learned so much about our American history and truly and greatly enjoyed learning about the institutions set forth by our founding fathers! How incredulous is it that a group of men were able to draft a document that has governed our country since 1776?

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course is challenging much like many history courses requiring the need to absorb large amounts of information on even just one particular event. In order to succeed in this course I heavily advise reading all of the assigned materials until they are thoroughly understood.
