This class was tough.
I would highly recommend this course for anyone interested in pursuing a career in education or history. The instructor does a spectacular job at outline the themes and major time periods in Europe from 1300 to present day, and it combines the challenge of an Advanced class with the entertainment of a history class.
We began with the Black Death and events of the 1300s. Afterwards, we moved on to exploration and the Renaissance. We then studied the Protestant Reformation and the life of Martin Luther. Colonization of the Americas and the French Revolution were highlighted when we studied the 17th and 18th centuries. The breakup of the Holy Roman Empire (Germany) and reunification preceded World War I and World War II, which led us to the European involvement in Vietnam and finally, the breakup of the Soviet Union and the fall of communism.

Advice for students:
Stay on task with daily assignments. Do not let work pile up simply because it is due weeks in advance, because assignments are handed out daily. Spend adequate time studying for exams as well, as they cover everything you will have learned in the unit.
