    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was filled with interesting information and presented in the form of a continuing story, making it easy to follow along. Each topic leads to the next chronologically. Some might not like taking a lecture class because of extensive note taking, but for visual people like me, writing down what I hear is how I learn.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was the primary documents we were given as reference. Incorporating primary sources gives us a first hand look at events and historical figures. For example, for one assignment we used a database that had all the voyages documented during the Atlantic Slave trade with information like the number of slaves when departing, number of deaths, where it departed, the destination, and the result of the voyage.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attendance is definitely a must for this course. Each class period consists of several pages of note taking and covers various topics. Getting the notes from someone is not the same as taking them yourself or even just listening to the lecture. Go to every class if possible and complete every assignment on time to succeed.
