    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because you cover all the major events in American History. It's a different class setting where the students have more of a responsibility and are expected to act as young adults. The course is designed to include all the events in American history while also incorporating many aspects or World which in my opinion makes it enjoyable for all students with different interest.

    Course highlights:

    I believe the most important and most interesting topics we discussed included World War 2, The Reconstruction Era and analysis the economic and social interaction with all the different groups that came into contact. Also learning how the American people changed and evolved over a long period of time was interesting to me.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If your considering this course make sure you defiantly put enough time and effort in. Take and study a lot of notes and make sure you don't miss class often. Missing a couple classes in a row can really effect your grade.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I believe it is invaluable to learn about ones country and it's history. With the knowledge one learns in this course one can feel confident in their understanding of the eras of American History. One can also have an understanding what type of events cause predictable societal reactions and outcomes. For example the war in Vietnam and the societal reactions to drafts, and the effects of the Vietnam War on the presidential elections. These things are monumental in teaching us which events occurred that should be avoided in the future and which events that should be augmented and built upon.

    Course highlights:

    I learned all about America and it's place in the world throughout history. A highlight of this course was that we had a speaker visit us in class to talk about his first hand experiences liberating Nazi concentration camps. I also learned that I'm a huge geek for history and how it's like a story that one can read and hear about from elders. I learned that history unites us all in a common understanding of our collective past.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    How ever you learn best, just read the textbook! Though opening the big hard cover thing may seem intimidating, it's really not! I found myself actually enjoying the hours I spent reading chapters and taking notes. Yes, hours. But it's all worth it for the knowledge you gain in the end. One of my fondest memories of this course was taking my textbook on vacation and reading it on the beach. It's kind of like reading a documentary where as it's really interesting and you find you get sucked in, but you just don't always go to discovery channel. Choose to read the textbook and you'll realize you're just reading a story book of facts.
