    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would only recommend him to people who learn well from heavy ready and lectures. He's a strict grader and the most feedback you can get from him is during the office hours.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about Early American History. From how the colonies begun to develop to them becoming independent from Britain, becoming United States of America.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do all the reading the professor gives you. Visiting office hours was found to be very beneficial.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Exploring American History allows the student to understand how America has arrived where it is today. The history of this country is so intriguing as to the subtle undercurrents of what was happening. Everyone knows about The American Revolution, but how many know of the part The Daughters of Liberty played in bringing about our fight for freedom, or know of the group, The Mechanics that was led by Paul Revere. There is so much more to what happened then a war.

    Course highlights:

    For me the highlight of this class was the project I got to do on The Sons of Liberty. A group in modern times that would likely be considered terrorists because of their tactics, instead are considered heroes of the Revolution. I learned that the victors write history. That not all, in fact very little, is black and white in the study of what went before. Looking at multiple angles of an event or time period is necessary to get a non biased view of what really happened and that we can learn so much about human nature by studying what people of the past have done in reaction to certain circumstances. We may even be able to predict future events by studying the past.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be willing to be creative in your research. Do not stick to traditional methods but attempt to tie cause and effect together. This happened because...Have fun, enjoy learning and think of it as a privilege instead of a requirement. The more enjoyment you are able to take from what you do the more you will learn, and the better you will do in your grades.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class may be challenging but it will only benefit your learning experience. Almquist is a tough grader and pays attention to detail. In order to succeed in her class you must thoroughly analyze the text and write about every important event and person described within it. Be sure to leave yourself plenty of time to do assignments as they may take two or more hours to complete. Also, be punctual as she will not accept late assignments out of fairness to the other students. If you are interested in the history of the United States you will enjoy this course and its contents. This class makes use of two websites; CANVAS and Oxford First Source. The documents present on these websites originated from the 17th and 18th centuries. This works well because it allows the reader to analyze events on a deeper level, and helps them understand the thoughts and beliefs that pushed people to take action during the time of an event.

    Course highlights:

    Those interested in the history of the United States will find this class highly fascinating. The text on CANVAS and Oxford are often documents made during the 17th and 18th centuries. Which allows the reader to be able to more easily see and analyze historical figures and their thought processes during certain events. By doing so they are able to understand these historical events and figures on a deeper level. One such example would be understanding the thoughts, beliefs and emotions that pushed a certain historical figure to take action during an event.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are interested in taking part of this course be aware that you will need to take your time when completing Professor Almquist's assignments. All of her assignments take a minimum of two hours and its essential to reread the text a few times to get all necessary information. Professor Almquist appreciates detail and will give you a higher grade if you talk about every historical figure and event present in the reading. Also, she does not accept any late work so be sure to not hold out on working on the assignments until the last minute. All the articles are present online so if necessary you can work on assignments early.
