    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Donny is an engaging professor who really knows his stuff! The professor really makes the difference for this gen ed course, and while it is writing intensive with essays almost every week, Donny gives all the material and feedback necessary to get decent grades on the papers. He doesn't require empty memorization but rather real reflection and learning on relevant historical topics.

    Course highlights:

    Some topics discussed in this course were the Chinese Exclusion Act, Manifest Destiny, the meat packing industry, New Deal, Roe v Wade, Social Darwinism through the Wizard of Oz, Spanish American War, Virginia Slims, the Wounded Knee Conflict, Harlem Renaissance, Civil Rights, hippies, the atomic bomb, Vietnam, WW1 and WW2.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to write essays almost weekly, but FOLLOW DONNY'S FORMULA and it shouldn't be that time consuming. Read everything and be prepared to have thought-provoking discussions in-class to hopefully prepare you for the essay out-of-class. As in any decent essay, a creative, thoughtful introduction with a strong thesis statement and scope of talking points, then meat paragraphs with cited evidence that you ANALYZE and INTERPRET to support your opinions/direct answers to prompt, and ending with a conclusion that shows why the topic is significant.
