    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is really dedicated to history. He is a no messing around kind of guy and he will insist you take it seriously. In addition, he tries to do activities that will engage you and make it somewhat fun. For example, he posted slave auctioning posters around the classroom (and other historical primary sources) and we got into groups and went around to look at all these primary sources to better understand the time period first hand.

    Course highlights:

    We got to see a lot of primary sources. His curriculum really focused on these. This was great because we were able to see how people really lived. We also heavily studied lives of slaves and it gave me new insight into a part of my history that I always knew was there but never got to learn about in such detail.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You will have to read! There will be quizzes every week on the textbook material. He lets you use notes on these so make sure you get your note taking skills down to a science. In other words, find what technique works for you and stick with that. It doesn't matter what other people do with their notes...as long as you know what works for you, don't feel the need to conform to what others think works best.
