    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Its such an educational course, but due to the time of class its crammed material and you have to be on top of your game. The class difficulty would suite sophmores moreso but if you put your mind to it anyone can succeed in this class.

    Course highlights:

    The top highlights of this course were the key concepts that were arrived at based on all the history we had learned. The idea of different parts of history coming together to form a concept or central idea in history. She would teach us about the foundnig fathers and then draw a conclsuion on the seperation in presidents cabinet, or teach about how the west was settled and expanded and then make you give a decscription of the key concept of westward expansion.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The ammount of homework is very minimal, basically just reading. But the tests are what are important, and test week is crack down study time. I suggest learning and studying the terms/people weekly and test week ti study the key concepts. Also anothe rimportant part is to follow the assignment for her essays. If you apply yourslef and dont slack an A is attainable.

    | Would recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The course is interesting and the teacher is very knowledgeable. Tests are very straightforward and passable if you study.

    Course highlights:

    this course went through the history of America all the way up to 1877. It went in depth about wars, relationships among presidents and historical figures, and relationships between America and other countries. This course was not just memorization of facts but was a course on the history of the beginning of America and what it was like during those times.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you study and ATTEND CLASS. This teacher does not use moodle and so if you miss class you will miss the notes. He also does not post notes anywhere so the only way you will know what's on the test is if you attend class and take notes. Computers are not allowed with this teacher so plan to take notes on paper.

    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.
