    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course covers much of what has been taught in high school: the Bubonic Plague, the Dark Ages, etc. but McKnight takes it further in order for students to understand why a certain event happened. In other words, he makes you look at puzzle pieces individually and then will build upon that to show how one event is connected to another,

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were definitely when we got to watch the movie "The Return of Martain Guerre," a movie about what it would've been like in the Medieval Era.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to pas, you've got to take notes. He'll talk during the whole lecture period, unlike some professors that will create Power Points for class. You use your own discretion to decide whether or not something he says is important. Also, read the textbook.
