    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    There are not a lot of assignments, but of all the professors that I have had he has the most interesting writing style that he grades papers by. Nothing else about the class is particularly hard.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a great deal about slavery in the British Colonies. Also the role that native Americans played in the colonization of the US.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take advanced writing courses before taking this class.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is focused on learning and understanding, not memorization. Michael (Professor Goode's preferred name) cares about his students' understanding and teaches problem solving and critical thinking in an exciting and interesting manner. This class helps you understand history, as well as provides you with necessary skills that will help in all class types.

    Course highlights:

    Problem solving and critical thinking was definitely what I learned the most of in this class. It's possible to take a history class where you just breeze through fact after fact, without gaining any applicable knowledge. Michael helps you to understand history, while also improve your academic skills in a way where you barely recognize the transformation. He makes lectures fascinating and I often find myself eager to participate in the next one.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My best advice is to just make sure that you are doing the readings. Michael takes special care to find articles that are interesting and they really help you to understand the culture of the times and prepare you for the tests.
