Such an easy class, but wasn't too boring either. I'm in science and took it as an arts credit. The midterm was a breeze, and no major essays.

Pretty much a review of grade 12 history, a good introductory course for first years but I took it in my third year and there was a whole lecture devoted to learning how to use the library... so that was a bit unnecessary for me ahaha. Work load was average with a response due every week and just one major assignment.

A bit boring, a bit interesting, I am on the fence about this class. I remember liking the content itself but not the way it was delivered. We watched some weird movies in that class, haha! They were good for a while but I think just showing small clips would be more effective than taking up class time with a big chunk of a movie that made no sense.

I LOVED history in high school, but I definitely was not a huge fan of this class. Every midterm and for the final, the prof had to increase everyones marks to sustain a better class average. Prof Goddard was good and you could tell he was passionate about teaching history.
