    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The lessons are engaging and makes the subject of history not so dry. Very animated and passionate and makes the students passionate, wanting to learn more. The work is straightforward and the reading isn't too heavy.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the transitional eras of the United States between post Civil War to World War II. We discussed political leaders and examined the truth of stereotypes and myths about the "American Dream".

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not procrastinate and try to get the reading done at least a week in advance. Develop your writing answers and don't cram the essays with rambling sentences-- keep them short, sweet, and to the point.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course and especially with Professor Cooper, it's always interesting to learn about the history of the country and how it developed into what it has become today. This course brings you through the post civil war phase which I myself found to be very entertaining, I don't want to give away to much about what this course is about, but I highly recommend taking it, plus it satisfies a General Ed requirement.

    Course highlights:

    The high light of this course was our research paper, I know that this professor changes the topic for the papers each semester, but for our semester we did it on the Great Depression, which obviously was a very hard time. It was very interesting doing my research and learning what people had to go through just to survive in such a harsh time.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are taking Professor Cooper, definitely show up to class, he gives points for showing up and doing the in class work, if you don't show up, you lose points. He also shows videos quite often which you need to take notes on, at the end of the video you turn in those notes for more points. There's also some reading, but not too much. He responds to email in a really timely matter so if you need help, definitely email him.
