    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course fills in the blanks of United States history that seems to be lost in the high school years, you gain a new perspective our nations history. I enjoy how Professor Greene allows us to create blog posts that relate our current world around us with one of the past, connecting us in a way that we may never thought we would have.

    Course highlights:

    Well I am currently taking this course but so far I have gained a new interest in the foundation of our nation. My favorite part of the course, again, happen to be the blog posts we are required to create. I feel this course challenges the student to think about the importance of history and how it effects our everyday lives.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the chapters! This is your main source of knowledge and key to passing the quizzes each week. If you don't read the chapters you will be completely lost when taking the quizzes and you will have a difficult time writing your weekly blogs with enough substance to make yourself credible. This course has quite a bit of reading involved and time vanishes in a blink of an eye, but if you stay motivated and keep your nose to the grindstone you can pass this course with high marks.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course really goes in depth about the beginnings of the United States. Of course, you will have the opportunity to learn about George Washington and other founding fathers that you will have heard of before, but this course will teach you lessons of how and why things resulted the way they did. Through cause and effect, you will learn the reasons behind many aspects of American culture, government, and legislation that you see today, nearly 300 years later.

    Course highlights:

    I loved learning about the American Revolution. There is so much detail about how America became an independent country explained throughout the course, it is almost disappointing when the semester comes to an end. More so than specific facts and dates however, the course allows you to examine and learn objectively, and further develop your critical thinking and writing skills.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice would be to come to class every day. Not only because it is so interesting, but because the curriculum covers so much. Missing one class meeting could mean returning to a lecture about the Federalist Papers in 1788 after only learning about Bacon's Rebellion in 1676 prior to your absence.

    It is a fast track course. There's a lot of writing and homework. You have to be in top of everything or you'll fall behind. Make friends with other students and talk to the professor if your having trouble.
