    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend any new student to take U.S. History 1301 with Professor Kimberlee Ball because she makes history interesting to students who don't like the subject through Powerpoints filled with eye-catching images and maps, PBS documentary films, amusing history-related video clips, and additional information on a famous figure most of us students didn't know. Based on many people I know, they tell me how passionate this instructor teaches with such honorary discipline, but care for students to be successful in their college life.

    Course highlights:

    When I took Mrs. Ball as my History professor in college, at first I was scared of failing her class. However, Professor Ball helped me and other students pass her class and told us that we have to read the materials, "For the Record: A Documentary History of America" and America: A Narrative History. She would always give us a exam with some multiple choices, short answers, and a one page essay with an assigned topic. We would do weekly quizzes online through D2L in the Lone Star College System web page program. Mrs. Ball gives away extra credit to her students and still does according to most recent responses from current students I tutored this year in 2017 who took both her History 1301 and 1302 classes in person. As a former student in her History in class in Spring 2014, she offered me and other students to participate in a conference that shows how women are breaking barriers in the patriarchal society we live in. I participated in that event that invited Professor Bonnie Dunbar, a retired lunar astronaut, who teaches engineering at University of Houston (Main Campus) at that time and lectured students into the workshops to attend that encourage gender equality in the workplace, college campus, military, and fitness/wellness places. Her class is not an easy "A" because we have to read so much and do complete the daily quizzes.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    They must find ways to adapt to her teaching styles, read both of the texts she assigns for the week, take essays seriously in her class to prevent plagiarism and poor grammar, and go to the tutoring labs that help them with their writing and history materials.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The Professor will make the student TRULY enjoy the class. He clearly knows the material and enjoys teachings it. He seeks to make his students understand, not just memorize.

    Course highlights:

    I learned to understand history and all of the different viewpoints on certain events. This was far more educational than merely memorizing hundreds of facts, names, and dates.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed, simply attend the lecture in order to understand the essay topics, and go over the terms sheets he gives out in class and ensure you can say a few words about most of the terms.
