I enjoyed how Professor Bush graded qualitatively. One way that he did this, was by requiring that discussion posts only be 5 sentences or less. This forced me to really study and learn the information so that I could properly condense it. I believe this is very important in an online course, because it promotes students to retain more information in an otherwise difficult setting to get individual help.
We read a book about Andrew Jackson which was actually much more enjoyable than I thought it would be. We also learned a lot about colonial times, and the Revolutionary War.

Advice for students:
Pace out the reading and try not to procrastinate. When you're reading, pay close attention to specific key terms like battle names, tribes, groups, etc. He likes when you mention these things specifically.
