Not too easy. Not too difficult.
First off, Dr. Cox is awesome! He is a very interesting and enthusiastic human, to say the least. He runs a tight ship, but if you allow him, you will learn most of the material effortlessly. This class allows you to get personal opinions from students about situations happening in the news which allows you to get perspectives from people of all backgrounds. His class does not ask a lot of you, other than attention and attendance.
Highlights for me included watching movies/documentaries, and the news articles. These two forms of information allowed us to understand topics in a different way. By watching Gone with the Wind, we saw how southern belles carried themselves in antebellum societies. With the news articles, you would often times hear a mix of events that took place. I learned a lot about the different ways people could gain from loopholes in the system.

Advice for students:
Definitely show up on time and make sure you speak in class, Your goal is to have Dr. Cox know your name by the end of the semester. If he doesn't, you didn't speak up enough and you won't get your participation points. His tests are largely based off the readings, so at minimum, scroll through the readings to get an understanding of the basic principles of the material.
