    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This was one of my favorite courses because it focused on more than just the facts and events in history. Instead, it teaches more about the movements, ideas, and certain people that led to the events being caused and how we got to where we are today, which allowed me to view history in an entirely new way.

    Course highlights:

    I can say for certain that I gained a new way of understanding both history and its sources by taking this class. My favorite part of the course was reading the memoir "Kaffir Boy". I do not consider myself an avid reader, especially of nonfiction, but I can say for certain that this was one of my favorite books ever, and I was happy to participate in the weekly discussions about it.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be sure to keep up with the readings. The class meets once a week for discussions on one of the three books that we read as a class. Make sure you are understanding what you are reading and I would recommend annotating as you go along. During class there are small quizzes on the section that was assigned followed by a discussion that you need to participate in for points, so you must always be prepared. Lastly, the exams may ask questions pertaining to the books and may also ask you in an essay to connect what you learned in class with what you've read in the books, so do not fall behind!
