Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Professor Burstein is a great teacher! Not only does he know his history but he is passionate about past and present American History. He wants you as a student to understand his lectures and encourages students to be active in class!
I truly appreciate this course because I didn't feel like I was in a cliche, boring history class. Every time I walked in class I knew I was going to learn something interesting and truly enjoy the class. Professor Burstein didn't just lecture to his students he tried to talk and engage with his students and wanted us to express our opinion about certain things, especially during the election period.

Advice for students:
I would definitely tell students to read the textbook pages that are assigned on the syllabus, it helps a lot for class- you will not only be prepared but it will help you with understanding the lectures during class! Also if you go to class, go to the study sessions, and take time to read and truly digest the readings (mostly from the textbook and other class novels) you will get the full effect of the class and definitely make a good grade!
