    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It was a good class to understand the development of early America. There was a LOT of reading assignments, and we were required to print them off and bring them to class, which was a little costly and inconvenient. Would have preferred to save paper and have it on a device of some sort, but learned a lot overall

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about those who had a strong influence of our country as it was developing. It was fascinating to read more about Benjamin Franklin and how he especially worked to bring about our freedoms we celebrate today

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Highlight bits you feel are important, and make sure to mark down what she discusses in class. There are quizzes and will go over that!

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Cox teaches the subject with so much excitement and *enthusiasm* so that makes it very easy to understand and love.

    Course highlights:

    We learned about where the enlightened ideals originated. We also read and discussed the Constitution and Declare of Independence and learned about the structure of government.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read and pay attention. If Cox gives you a hint of what to study, it will most likely be on a quiz or test. Also form study groups.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course helped me think become educated and form opinions on things I didn't think I cared about. Professor Cox loves the topic so much and that energy and enthusiasm really makes a difference.

    Course highlights:

    We read about the Enlightenment Period of America's history. Cox taught us about all the things the forefathers envisioned for this land. He also taught us about the basic structure of our government.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Form study groups. Your peers can help you understand things in a different way. Read. And pay attention. If Cox says something like "this would make a good exam question" or "hmm.. maybe I'll make that an extra credit question", pay attention to that because he will.
