Background Knowledge Expected
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I am indifferent when it comes to the recommendation of U.S. History because I a more interested in World History. However, I think it is important to learn about the history of our own country because there is a lot I did not know.
Throughout the course of U.S. History, I have learned about a few events that caught my attention. I loved learning about the Boston Tea Party because I find it funny that it was used as a method of protest. I also greatly enjoyed learning about the Ghost Dance. Although, the only reason I know about the Ghost Dance is because I am writing a research paper on it. In case you did not know, the Ghost Dance was performed by Native American tribes to summon their dead ancestors to help them fight the whites.

Advice for students:
My advice to all students pondering the idea of taking U.S. History would be to really decide whether they are a specific detail based learner or are better at understanding the big picture of a topic. If they answer the preceding question with the "big picture," then I would argue that U.S. History is a great course for them to take.
