Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The professor was amazing at what she did, and she kept the class very interesting! She did her dissertation on the Civil War, so when we were on that topic we were able to get so much information and great stories she had found. It was really cool to see how her excitement rubbed off on her students, because even though attendance wasn't mandatory, most everyone was in class, eagerly listening.
I was able to learn things about the history of Arkansas that I never would've known. From the Native Americans to its part in the Civil War to the Civil Rights movement. Arkansas, I've learned, is more than just another state, because it was able to turn its self around. It used to be the place people migrated to for slavery and cheap land. Yes, the land is still cheap, but the state has gone through great lengths to be more diversified and accepting of all races and cultures.

Advice for students:
I would definitely take it with professor Howard! I would also take her up on her office hours, because if you have a question on a topic discussed in class or on your research paper she gives you her full attention. I would also print off the power points she provides and write down what she says that isn't on the PowerPoints, because it's very interesting and helpful when it comes to the tests!
