    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a course required by the core curriculum at UTSA; though, even if it wasn’t I would still highly recommend enrolling in this class, as it is a very informative course that gives one great insight on this nation’s history. I took this class via the internet, and though all the course material was completed online, I had an instructor who was very actively involved our learning. The instructor made herself available to the class in case we had any difficulty or questions regarding the course. Her PowerPoint presentations and weekly discussion posts were extremely informative, interesting, and thought provoking. The exams for this course were not too difficult, but they were not easy, so there is no way to do well on the exams if one did not study all the material. Overall, this is a great course that I feel was greatly beneficial to my education.

    Course highlights:

    Topics in this course ranged from Reconstruction to present day America. Each one of the lessons contained a wealth of information, which the instructor made interesting with her sense of humor. The weekly discussion posts also prompted the class to dive deeper into each topic that we covered by researching certain historical figures and characteristics of each time period, and posting our thoughts on whatever topic we were covering that week. Each week everyone had the chance to comment on and review each other’s posts. Videos and documentaries assigned for the class to view were other components that made the course enjoyable. To explain all that I learned from this course would take many essays for me to cover, so just believe me when I say there is much to learn from this class. From Reconstruction to the Gilded Age to the World Wars and Civil Rights Movement, I’m sure everyone who enrolls in this course will find something that fascinates them.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Success is not something that comes easy. To do well in this course one must put forth the effort. Reviewing all the PowerPoint presentations and assigned videos is a must do. Every week there is a discussion post prompt that must be completed. Doing the research and typing your response does not take long, so it is better to do it early than to wait until the last minute. Discussion posts are mandatory, so do not expect to do well if these aren’t completed. Read the chapters in the book when they are assigned. Cramming for exams may be convenient, but studying a little bit everyday will help you to retain the material, and in the long run you will see your hard work reflect on your exam grades. Participation and good study habits will take you a long way in this course.
