    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I was worried about taking a history course because I have never been really good at the subject. However, professor Schrum really engages his sudents in the material and his teaching style really helped me to retain the knowledge. it takes some time to develope an effective note taking stle for his course, but I strongly recommend this history course.

    Course highlights:

    This wasn't a course where I learned anything particularly new, but i started to understand the iformation that had been given to me over the years and understand how they connected and their importance.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It's not importnt to read everything in depth, but rather to skim the readings and make note of important topics. Keep track of the topics you learn about through the course in order to complete the assignment at the end of the semester.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a challenging course, but it is completely worth it. The writing assignments require thinking and reasoning, rather than just facts. I learned new perspectives on history and improved my thinking and writing. Professor Lamkin's lectures are fun and engaging.

    Course highlights:

    My biggest takeaway was improving my writing skills. His course emphasizes the "how & why" of history, rather than the "who, what, when, & where." I learned to shift my writing focus toward the hows & whys and write a better constructed paper. He made himself available to meet with students who wanted to improve their writing and do better in the class, and that helped a lot. From the course material itself, I gained a better understanding of race relations and got a closer look at movements such as the Civil Rights Movement and protests in the 60s and 70s. It may just be me, but there was a lot I was unaware of, and I feel I understand it much better now.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The biggest advice I have is to take advantage of his office hours. Don't wait until the end of the semester. Even if you are doing well in the class, set up a meeting if you have the time. He has valuable advice to improving your writing and thinking. Also, his assignments are all essays/short answers, so be prepared to do a lot of writing.
