Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course is a must take! The section I took was over The Black Freedom Struggle. In this course we did readings for homework over black history and during the class period everyday, we sat in a circle and discussed the readings. To help the discussion move, along with reading for homework, we had to come up with 3 discussion questions. This type of classroom environment is the perfect learning style for communicating ideas and opinions with others while also learning about the struggle blacks had to and still are facing. If more people took this course, peace and compromise would be more easily achieved as in this world some don't appreciate or take the time to listen to other's opinions.
The biggest highlight of the course was being able to sit in a circle and comfortably share any and all opinions you had with your peers. This course is very discussion oriented allowing ideas to be shared, expanded, and even changed. I learned not only about black history, but how to form my own opinions and ideas to what is better for the world around me. To elaborate, I learned how to think and act the way that is best for everyone, harming no one.

Advice for students:
To succeed in this course, do the readings! Sure, reading can be the not most exciting thing but the readings provided keep you interested and the fact that we discuss our opinions in class the next day keeps you motivated. I would also like to advise, respect all opinions! When people don't, it's what hurts this world. People refuse to hear other opinions, therefore peace among each other is hard to come by. Be patient, use smart words, and listen to what others have to say! They just might change your way of thinking for the better!
