This class was tough.
The Professor is very lenient when it comes to last mintue grade boost, although you still need to work for it, which is expected. I would recommend this if you know a brief history of America a few decades before the American Revolution.
The highlights if this course starts out learning slightly on the lives of the Indians and Europeans before they encountered. It then skews toward on how and why Europeans voyaged to the continent, in which they soon overtook. From here on, lessons on how economic, political and social conflicts shapes the sociteies in both Europe and America. Topic on relationships between Indians and Europeans, and among between intragroups of Indians/Europeans were discussed.

Advice for students:
Must do the reading before hand. There will be short quiz from time to time. The class is oreiented as a half lecture and class discussion. There are only a midterm, final, and two mandatory short papers.
