    Term:

    Francisco Vasquez de Coronado p.23

    Definition:

    The 16th-century Spanish explorer Francisco Vázquez de Coronado (c. 1510-1554) was serving as governor of an important province in New Spain (Mexico) when he heard reports of the so-called Seven Golden Cities located to the north. In 1540, Coronado led a major Spanish expedition up Mexico’s western coast and into the region that is now the southwestern United States. Though the explorers found none of the storied treasure, they did discover the Grand Canyon and other major physical landmarks of the region, and clashed violently with local Indians. With his expedition labeled a failure by Spanish colonial authorities, Coronado returned to Mexico, where he died in 1554.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The course with this professor is easy and understandable. The professor is funny and will not make your fall asleep during the class. He makes the class go by fast and he explains the material very well.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course would be the professor himself! I was able to learn the beginning of history in a new perspective. It is the same material from high school but somehow it was as if I never learned it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do make sure to write down the note, especially the vocab words he says to underline. Also make sure that you understand the material, but the class is very straight forward. Last thing is to study for the tests and not to try to wing it in hopes to pass.

    Please take Ms. Blank for your history 1302 and 1301 courses! Studying and taking thorough notes is the best thing to do for this course to make an A!

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Freshman year of college is intimidating, but with this course I feel like it opened the door to having a baseline knowledge in other courses. Currently, I have used my knowledge in this course in American Literature 1, Intro To World Religions, US History 1302 (from 1865 to present), English 1301 and 1302, and in Intro to Psychology. Research was much easier when I had a baseline knowledge to fall back on. My best advice is to take detaile dnotes of his lectures. All of the answers are very clearly said in his lectures.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot of the early history of the U.S., much of which I feel was contradicting to grade school education. We learned more of the complex side, the things unsaid to our younger selves. The major highlight was taking the exams to test our knwoledge in each subject. We were allowed a review sheet to use during the exam, which was hand written. I found that by hand-writing my revised lecture notes, I was well-prepared and didn't need my review sheets.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pletny of notebook paper, pencils, and highlighters! You'll be all set for this course. For the review sheet listed earlier, I was able to fit entire units of lectur e on to the sheet of paper. You just have to know what details are crucial, and what details are not as important. If you keep organized, you will have no trouble creating a chonrological review sheet to not only use on the test, but help you study as well.
