Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course to anyone who has a strong interest in history along with strong opinions. This course is quite the learning experience and gives you a new outlook on your own country and society, giving you answers on why things are the way they are. This course forces you to think, to argue, to get emotional, and to open up to others. Your persuasion and writing skills will improve phenomenally, along with your work ethic and desire to learn.
This course is a very engaging experience that forces you to think critically and absorb difference viewpoints of history. There is so much to absorb and gives you a different perspective on the world today. The main highlights of this course were the discussions and essays. Lots of different ideas and conclusions were exchanged between both the students and teacher. I learned about several major eras in American History and its' effect on our society today.

Advice for students:
Researching each topic within the unit is very important. Gaining background knowledge is very helpful before graded assignments. Communication with your teacher is key to succeeding. Learning how to write effectively ( know the difference between argue for, against, or qualify) and understanding concepts such as "historical context" and how to relate the past to the present and future will guarantee an "A" out of this course. Study, study, study, and keep an open mind.
