    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Ms. Smith is a highly dedicated teacher who not only cares about her material [she is almost scarily knowledgeable about most eras of history] but also about her students and their success in her class. The course is primarily note and lecture based, with some writing assignments over areas that Smith feels require a deeper understanding.

    Course highlights:

    One of my favorite things about taking this class was getting to learn from someone who is genuinely interested in their topic - the enthusiasm of the teacher often matches the enthusiasm of their students. This was most likely the most comprehensive study of Western history I have ever done and it was fascinating.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take good notes! Write down everything on her Power-points and the charts she gives you. If you don't have the notes, most of the writing assignments will be much more difficult.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Ms. Smith gives such a dynamic, engaging account of history, the student cannot help but succeed in the course. Her assignments help expand upon the class lecture, and the lecture style itself is extremely effective.

    Course highlights:

    A highlight of this course is being exposed to different perspectives, as we study historians within different schools of thought. We discuss history in more thorough context, and with more attention to the close details of any given situation. This allows the student a better idea of the true causes of events.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Come into this class with an open mind a willingness to learn. There is a lot of information to absorb, and the pace is very quick.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it provides a very detailed history of many events. Although the teacher gives a very thorough teaching of each section, she is able to include many different historical events and times. This allows for a broader study. The teacher also includes art history in with her lesson, which I find to be very interesting.

    Course highlights:

    A highlight of the course has been the section on Italian Unification. I had very little background knowledge on the subject and the course gave me a thorough understanding of the event, specifically the historical figures involved.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The course is not heavy on homework, therefore many students ignore the readings the teacher hands out. I would highly recommend reading the handouts, regardless of if there is homework to go along with it or not. The readings have helped me have a better overall understanding and I am better prepared for in-class writing assignments.
