    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Turney is an awesome professor! For the most part, I find history boring and a drag but Professor Turney will help you enjoy the class! She loves teaching and it is very apparent by her teaching methods. Her lectures are very concrete and concise so she provides information that only relevant to course materials and textbooks. I never opened my textbooks and got an A in the course! Her lectures are awesome and she will NEVER test you on anything she hasn't gone over in class. She provides good exam review guides with terms that will be on the exam but the information on those terms are for you to study. Every exam I took reflected completely off of the review so you will never enter an exam in the dark for her class. If you have any questions about exams or if you got a question wrong, she will always give you the chance to argue your case and will give you full credit. She is simply an awesome professor. However, the course is not cruiser course and effort will be needed for an A. But all the resources to receive that A are given to you throughout the course. She also gives TONS of extra credit. If you do not get an A in her course it is most likely that you did not put in effort.

    Course highlights:

    Professor Turney not only taught us about Texas History, she also taught us on how to think as a historian. She will often ask you questions about course materials such as "Why would people do this? or "For what purpose did this happen?" She will also teach you to make connections to different points in class material. The course is a blend of Texas History with a hint of philosophical/critical thinking.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take advantage of her powerpoints; her powerpoints will be the key to your success in this course. Listen to everything she says, she will never go too deep into detail in order to confuse like other professors do. Also take advantage of SI sessions for there is an opportunity for extra credit for attending them. If you have ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS ABOUT YOUR GRADE OR OTHER THINGS, do not hesitate to e-mail her or approach after class. She will never abandon you and is extremely helpful. Also attendance is required to pass the course.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course, it is a fairly well taught course it really teaches you about the history of Texas and how it all began. The instructor did a well job in teaching this course, most of the test questions come from the power points but there will be some that will come from the book. It is not that hard to pass, as long as your up to date with the readings and you attend the class you will do just fine.

    Course highlights:

    Before taking this course I knew a bit about it but I was not so sure of how the events occurs, I was a bit confused. After taking this course it became clear to me that Spaniards and French were only here to try to establish themselves and rule these lands, unfortunately they were outnumber by English people or so to say the new colonist. I learned that Texas was very involve with the Civil War but not many wanted to admit it. It is a great course to take if you want to know more about Texas.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are thinking of taking this course a lot of what you will learn will be in your readings. If you are not a reader or have trouble reading you can surely skim through the chapters or read the first sentence of each chapter and that will be enough information to get you through this course. You may also want to study the power points, they help too. Take notes and do not miss class unless you have to.
