    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.

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.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class goes over the early history of the United States, including the Spanish conquest into the Americas and the devastation it had on the native american populations. Most classes to not go in depth about the native Americans but his class did.

    Course highlights:

    The history surrounding Europe and its interests in the Americas in the 1400 through 1600 was the highlight this course. Most other history classes only briefly cover this topic. I never knew that Columbus actually thought he was in china, not India.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    One thing you need to do in order to be successful in this class is keep up with the Canvas assignments. These assignments are small but frequent, and if you do not pay attention to your schedule you can easily fall behind.
