    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because Cavalli is a very intelligent professor, who although is tough, is very knowledgable and really pushes you to do your best in the class. He doesn't accept "I don't know" as a response. I think that is a good thing because it really makes you think about the questions he asks.

    Course highlights:

    We went very in depth in American history which I find very interesting. I never learned so much about how other countries colonies affected American history until that class.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I highly suggest you read the textbook. I will help you very much when taking the quizzes and tests. He likes a lot of specifics that you only learn from reading.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class to anyone that enjoys learning the details of our past.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were the in depth videos we watched explaining past historic events, as well as the group assignments we had such as the final project. I learned that we can be taught so much from the past just by looking at primary source documents.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need a motivation to learn and remember the historic events taught in this class or else this class might become a bit boring for you. When in the class, take many notes to help you succeed in the various assignments you get.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course invigorated my love for History! Professor Peterson's lectures were engaging and hilarious which really kept me engaged in the class. All of our assignments and expectations were clearer outlined at the beginning of the term and stayed true the entire course. We frequently integrated historical documents and films along with our lectures and textbook learning which gave us a broad scope of the time period we were learning about. Overall, it was vigorous and very thorough, yet thoroughly engaging and interesting. I would highly recommend this course.

    Course highlights:

    The time period we studied was from colonization onward to the beginning of the Civil War. We focused mostly on the social, political, economic, and societal influences and changes of the times, as well as prominent figures, dates, and events. The essays always intended to help us analyze and think in different ways above just the surface level, which was very helpful conceptually. I think the most rewarding concept I learned from this class, however, was the fact that history is anything but black and white, like we're used to generalizing. There are no good guys and bad guys; there are just people, a mix of both. That made this course very humanizing in a real way that made it easier for me to connect.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely to take lecture notes. Those were my landline the entire course. Write down dates, and ask him those specific dates because they will pop up on both the midterm and the final. Don't try to cram right before the test. You have no idea what's going to be on it, and neither does he until the day of, so make sure you study everything to the same extent. Conceptual ideas are sometimes more important than the details and facts. The work is time consuming, but if you get into history, the time goes by fast.
