Many Small Assignments
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I highly recommend Mrs. Ross as a humanities professor. She makes an effort to connect with and engage each student. Though many students find her course too difficult, it is excellent to take as a student conditioning to transfer to a university. All test information can be found in her PowerPoints, and she heavily emphasizes what will be seen on a test during her lectures.
Mrs. Ross tries to assure students have a conceptual understanding of the history of humanities, rather than giving information meant to be memorized and regurgitated. I feel like I have a solid framework of world history in my memory bank now that I've taken her class. The best part of her class is learning about art and how it correlated with what was happening with history at the time; it give a visual connection for understanding history.

Advice for students:
Pay attention in class when she says things like "remember this for me" or "remember this for testing purposes" or if she writes a vocab word on the board. These will definitely be test questions. Her test has a portion where you must name a piece of art, including artist and time period, when she shows it on the projector. You are given a list of these at the beginning of the unit. There is no reason not to get a 100 on this portion as you are literally given the answers beforehand.
