    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    You would learn a lot of historical stories in this course. The lectures are fun, but you have to read the book too. There is a lot of writing, no multiple choice in exams but she teaches that you be an effective thinker and understand the concepts of what Professor Davison teaches. This course will benefit you for future college classes at four year universities.

    Course highlights:

    You first are going to learn the highlights of the downfall of Rome. You will then learn about Charlemagne and his takeover of France. There will be subjects of William of Normandy and the 100 years wars between France and England that later came after. Joan of Arc. The vikings are mentioned in the course. And the rest you will learn the plague, the renaissance (Davison obsesses over Dante) The painters, Martin Luther King Henry Elizabeth Russian rulers, science, and lastly, the French revolution.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Be mentally prepared for this course, because Davison is pretty strict on people who are lazy. She teaches you the reality of college courses and professors. Even if you do not agree with her views on history, she is open to talking to you about it during office hours.
