Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course because it is not like all the other history classes where you need to know specific dates and times. The course helps you get an understanding of what was going on.
This class was very informational! It looks at the documents during the time rather than focusing on dates and facts. It gave me a better understanding of what was going in history since 1877. The quizzes are five questions, can be redone, and are not a big part of your grade. Because the professor does not expect you to remember dates and times and wants you to use the documents on your exams, you get to use your notes. I learned various things from Civil Rights, the Cold War, feminism, and we even touched on a little bit of slavery.

Advice for students:
Keep up with the readings that are given because they get discussed in the next class. The readings are typically short and are relatively easy to understand. The professor sends questions to go with the readings and asks them during discussions. You'll have the answers in front of you so you can participate in the discussions.
