    Advice for students:

    While readings are not checked or quizzed, getting an understanding of each text by reading it should be the priority for this course. Prof. Danford can be a bit difficult, but understanding his expectations will be the key to getting on his good side grade-wise. That being said, don't expect an easy A under any circumstances.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I was able to learn so much from this course. My skills in writing and interpretation of text have grown significantly. I read texts that gave me insight to my own life, and the order of things around me.

    Course highlights:

    A highlight of this course was reading and learning about the foundation of American government. I had never before considered the influences of American government, which have impacted the political system in America significantly. I was able to interpret and develop my own political opinions, causing me to become a more informed citizen. I was able to take knowledge from the classroom and develop my own opinions.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This class is not an easy class. It requires a lot of time and effort to be successful. There are some great professors that teach the course and should be utilized to help understand. Go to class and study notes regularly to succeed.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The class is incredibly hard, but gives a new understanding of the world.

    Course highlights:

    It gave me a much better sense of how to really dive into texts. I felt like I was truly being enlightened by the depth of the ideas I was learning about.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read absolutely everything, and write everything down. That's basically it. Try to understand which themes are the focus of each text as quickly as you can, so that you can continue reading the text with those themes in mind. Also, annotate the text. If nothing else, underline big, important sounding quotes.
