    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Jackson is a fantastic teacher, and makes learning the same old US history fun and gives a unique perspective to things we have been learning from an early age.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the roles of women in some of our most significant history. I also learned how gender has played into our perspectives on US history. I've also learned how to differ between primary and secondary sources, and how to write a solid thesis.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Start your papers when she gives you the assignment sheet. Definitely not a class you want to procrastinate in. Take good notes during her lecture, don't just copy the power point, add some of what she says, it will make your papers better and the tests easier.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Jackson is very eager to work with students to ensure that they receive the best grade possible in her class. Students only have 2 exams and 2 papers throughout the semester, and she preps her students very well; my class actually had an A or a B average on our midterm paper and exam.

    Course highlights:

    While we went through just typical US History that many students already know, she provides us with little details about certain events or people that we may have never know. For instance: I learned that President Andrew Jackson used to challenge people to duels, and he once challenged a master shooter. The shooter shot him in the side, but Jackson manage to cover it up with his cloak and mask his pain so that it looked like the bullet missed him. Because the bullet was believed to have missed him, he got to take a shot at the shooter, and kill him. For years he had the bullet lodged in his side, leaving him in immense pain, and eventually causing him to receive mercury poisoning from all of the pain pills he took.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you do all of the readings assigned each week, and do the analyses that go along with them; it will help you once you reach the exams.
