    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Jackson is great at teaching this course. Not only do you learn a lot, but you're truly engaged in the class. His lectures are filled with information and a few jokes here and there. Participation is key, which means there plenty room for a class discussion.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were definitely his lectures, because in them, he prepared you for quizzes and tests. You knew exactly what you were being tested on and had the material to study from. 17A starts with the establishment of the colonies and the American Revolution and goes through the Civil War and ends post Civil War. We cover 18 presidents and how their poor or great leadership impacted the country. We studied the Declaration of Independence, and the constitution; also examined the changes of government. discussed in detail the topic of slavery and how it shaped the U.S. Innovative technological advance through the decades and more.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't skip class, and if you do have to miss, make a friend so you can catch up on notes. Pay attention to the lecture and definitely participate. Don't hesitate to ask questions.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend it because if you are a high school student or new college student this is the perfect class to begin with to get your general ed done. It is set up similar to a high school class: there are homeworks, periodical tests, lectures, and discussions.

    Course highlights:

    Some highlights were definitely learning about something called "court history," which talked about how many of the ways certain historical figures are portrayed has to do with the bias in how historians of that day and age and even today wrote, either with bias or censorship. I also enjoyed drawing parallels from our preconceived ideas and history book teachings to his knowledge.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Mr. Cowell is a phenomenal teacher, who will give you all the resources to succeed, and you just have to pay attention and be an active participant in the class to get the most out of it.

    If you read the book, then take notes, and communicate with the teacher you should be fine.
