Professor Burnham is extremely passionate and knowledgeable in her field of work. Assignments mainly consisted of annotating primary sources before discussion and completing inquisitive assignments (questions from the online textbook website). The inquisitive assignments sometimes took way too long—the difficulty of the questions would vary and you lose points for each incorrect answer. She also assigned chronology quizzes that expect you to memorize dates—some of the questions can be tough. Everything she assigns is online, including the midterm and final. The midterm and final exams are essay exams in a certain time window. Overall, I learned a lot because I completed textbook readings and paid attention in lectures. She can be a tough grader because she expects you to remember specific information for the essays. The class is on the light side on readings.

The Making of Europe with Professor Burnham consisted of a lot of busy work and many quizzes. You need to memorize a lot of dates to do well on the exams, but the class is not too hard as long as you stay on top of the assigned readings.

This class was a pretty basic history class, there were a lot of lectures that you kinda just have to sit through. The exams are fair, but the chronological quizzes seemed pretty unnecessary and more difficult than they needed to be.
