    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Americans face problems every day; both individual and as a country. If there is one thing Mr. Deen has made very clear, was that education was key in arguments. In fact, he defined history as an ongoing argument of facts. That is how our class has been viewing history. With that mindset, learning about my own country’s history really makes me feel like a true citizen of the United States of America.

    Course highlights:

    One of the best parts about this course was being able to travel outside the standards. Because dual-enrollment classes are on the high school and college level, it allows the teacher to not only teach what is required but also other parts of history. Even though some of those things will not be on the tests, Mr. Deen knows that we, his students, will benefit from any extra piece of history he provides for us.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just like for every college level class, be sure to study. In order to study sufficiently, you need to take good notes. That implies for you to listen carefully and write down the essential facts. Because there are so many important pieces of history it is very difficult to rule out what is unwanted for the test. For me, I just have to keep rereading all of the taken notes until I have understood everything. During that time, a highlighter becomes very useful, as well as online videos. But, nothing is as helpful as simply listening to the teacher’s lectures.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is a challenging college-level history class. If you are focused and dedicated, then you will do well. Otherwise, if you are not willing to study and pay attention, you may not do so well.

    Course highlights:

    While learning the basics of American history from Christopher Columbus to Barack Obama, we also had an interesting project dedicated to uncovering the history of our town, Eatonton. We spent much time exploring databases and discovering the names of slaves and slaveowners. It was so fascinating to be able to learn about the people who lived in the same town that you do years ago!

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Write down every single thing that the professor says along with everything on the powerpoints. Mr. Deen tends to be very tricky and specific with the tests.
