    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because for most people history is boring, but for me is not because it helps us know more about our past and how we came here. What i love the best about this class is that Dr. Walenta interacts with the students and he is not there sitting around he actually gets up and does whatever he can to help us understand know about the past and sometimes how it relates. I feel like everyone would love his class because he makes jokes about what is going on and that helps students remember more, but the best thing about his class is that he gives you stories and sometimes (most of the times) he acts them out and gets help from students to act them out. So if you are thinking about joining his class you should because it's the best class on campus.

    Course highlights:

    Throught out the year i have learned a lot of things like Nat Turner Revolt, how Benjamin Franlkin would have to make order in the conventions how the Indepence took place and other great stories. But my favorite story is the Texas annexation because I was born in Mexico, in Saltillo Coahuila to be more specific and Texas was part of Coahuila so when they talk about the Texas Anexxation i feel so related to that story because that is part of who i am and it makes me thing about what would happen is Texas was still part of Mexico or what if Mexico was part of US and not Mexico anymore.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because the teacher is very passionate about having his students learn not just U.S. History but History overall. He implies how history has repeated its self and gives his own time for students who need help. A great sense of humor doesn't hurt as he uses comedy to lighten the tone or to simply have fun. Hands on learning like simulations helped us understand what we were learning about while having fun.

    Course highlights:

    United States history has been the course that has stuck with me the most. Sometimes we'll refer back to moments in history thanks to his great teaching style. My absolute favorite moments from the class were the simulations. It was so much fun being able to pretend that we were cowboys in the 1880 or immigrants living in 1910's America.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the readings every night and take notes. Forming a study group is an excellent idea to make the work load a bit lighter. Paying attention in class is a must and reviewing for 20 minutes a night on what you don't know really goes a long way.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would reveal that while history is not my strong suit, I was actively engaged seventy percent of the time in this class. I also had people assisting me in my classes with worksheets, homework, etc, not too terrible.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about the Civil War and World War 2. My teacher was very effective in explaining each war and its outcome, and made sure that everyone understood.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Look up quizlets before the test, the textbook is a waste of time and you will probably want to throw it against the wall.
