    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The thing that makes this class is Mr. Van Guilder. I took three of his classes during my time at Southeastern and I absolutely adore him. I would always look forward to coming to class because he made class fun and he was always so excited about the subject he was teaching.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about the history of the country. I think the one thing I vividly remember was the lesson about the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire. The story was so moving and tragic and did a lot to shape workers rights.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Really pay attention. Even if it's not on the test, the stories are interesting. Other than that be sure to take very good notes.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I was never a big history person, but Mr. Evans was the best history teacher I've had and it made me more interested in history. He truly cares about each and every one of his students and it shows.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how our country was founded and much more. Mr. Evans does a lot of research and doesn't just follow the book. He also doesn't sugar-coat anything. For example he told us that Christopher Columbus wasn't a good man like the history books portray him to be.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Write down all the notes you can because it does help. He will also tell you things that you can do to help yourself and trust me it does help. Take his advice and you will succeed and enjoy this class.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it gives an good view into how the United States formed and the problems it faced. However, this was an online class for me and it required reading the whole book in about a months time.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a great understanding of the colonies and early life in the joining of the states. There are different views on many times such as the Civil War. There was also in depth learning about important political figures those included were presidents, lawyers, Congress members and even running mates of the presidents, lawyers and Congress members. There is information from all sides that participated in war and even what was going on at different times in different places.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    The advise is pretty much the same for all classes. Make sure you do everything in a timely fashion and don't put things off till the end. Ask the instructor for help and tell him in advance if you know something will come up that interferes with the class. Take good notes even on things that you don't think will be on the test. Read the chapters because he ask questions that seem like small details in the book.
