    6-8 hours

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class discusses American history from the beginning of the Americas, involving exchanges between Native Americans and the British, and works it's way up to the American Civil War. What I really liked about the class is that we constantly looked at what freedom was and how it changed as time went on. Dr. Super is a guy that knows his stuff, and you can tell walking in on the first day of class. Overall, this was one of the most beneficial classes I took all semester!

    Course highlights:

    We read actual documents from the 1600s until the 1800s, and have quizzes based on the reading. What makes this so interesting is that it's not just one authors opinions. They're from actual newspapers, political speeches, and journal entries. You can really understand the mindset of the American public during certain historical events.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this class, you really need to make sure you're taking adequate notes in class. Dr. Super has the outline on the slide, but if you don't write it down or fill in notes with it, then you won't retain much. During the week of tests, he has review days where you see some of the exact questions on the exam. If you tend to skip classes, make sure review days are not skip days for you!
