    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Teaches very well! Goes into great detail on course material, yet does not overwhelm you. He also makes it quite interesting!

    Course highlights:

    During this course I learned about a variety of our Countries' history. The highlights were learning about the railroads and all the rich men of the time. For example John D. Rockefeller gained quite the influence over the railroad industry, which transported his oil around the country.

    Be ready to take good notes because there may be a quiz. It is important to always show up to class and pay attention to be able to succeed for a test and quiz! Be ready to speak up, this particular teacher prefers communication with the students as he lectures to keep it interesting.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend the course to any student in need of a history credit. This course was taught well by Mr. Roach with many intuitive topics to discuss. The class was never boring, always creative, and definitely intuitive. All who took the course would agree that it is worth the time.

    Course highlights:

    Mr. Roach is a lively character to learn from. One of my favorite moments in class was when a fellow student had a half gallon of chocolate milk on the desk and during a speech Mr. Roach abruptly stopped and asked our class, "Is that a half gallon of milk". We all had a joyful laugh.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Success lies in paying attention to the power points. Many of the questions on quizzes come word for word from the slides.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because I learned a lot in this class. Professor Roach is a good professor who assigns meaningful work that can be completed while trying to balance high school and college classes. I was never behind in the class, and if I missed a day for an extracurricular he was always understanding and never harsh.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of this course included the greatest and the worst times in U.S. history. I learned a lot about the Reagan administration and how Ronald Reagan was partly responsible for the removal of the Berlin wall. This was because professor Roach allowed the class to write an essay over a variety of topics and I chose Reagan. The class also taught me how to use Blackboard and how to use an online library.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to be ready to read your book. A lot of quiz questions come directly from the book, so reading the chapter will prepare you for those. Also make sure to check vocabulary. He loves definitions. Lastly I recommend doing your work early, especially if you are taking more than one college course. If an assignment is due Wednesday, go ahead and do it Monday. You'll be thanking yourself that you did on Wednesday.
