Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I liked this class and I learned a lot of new information. It is hard to recommend a class when an individual has no interest in the course but has to take it as a requirement. The teacher was great and the work was not hard at all so it made the class a lot easier to take.
I was very touched by the assignment about the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings. To feel the emotions from everyone in the class as they took on a role either for or against the use of these bombs put the actual events into a perspective that I before had not seen. Now I know how those in my grandparent’s generation must have felt during this time. So many felt that it was very important to back the government and its military and felt that there was justification for using this type of force because of the brutality that was brought upon Pearl Harbor. However, since my last name decided what side of the coin I was on for this assignment, I was forced with feeling the sadness of someone who was very against the use of these bombs. How sad it must have been for the Japanese-Americans living in an internment camp for no other reason than their race and knowing that the government for the country they loved and were devoted to had caused such destruction in the land of their heritage.

Advice for students:
During this course, I have learned a lot about my country’s history that I thought I already knew about. I have come to learn that these issues and events are very glossed over during high school history classes.
