Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The class is not an easy one, if you are hoping to just show up, do some assignments and move on, this class probably isn't for you. I am not someone who normally participates in class discussions a lot but Peshkoff really has a way of bringing you in to the class, he is really passionate about the subject and really knows what he is talking about.
I learned a lot about the formation of the United States, where the ideas that formed our national identity first came up and how all of these ideas came together and evolved to form the country we know now.

Advice for students:
Most of the points in the class are his tests and research paper. The tests are essay questions that require a lot of detail so be warned. The thing he wants you to focus on in this class is not so much the who, what, when, where, but the why. Why did someone do something, why did this happen, so focus on that when you are studying.
