    Easy. I would take it if you need a filler class. I forgot who my prof was but he was very entertaining!

    You'll have papers here and there but nothing horrible.

    I took it with Corey Johnson. Class was really easy and was actually decently entertaining.

    I had it with some woman and I got a good grade but the tests were actually kinda tough. Scott Haughton was in my class and he made it entertaining.

    Easy class but you have to show up to get a better than average grade. When I took it the were at most three papers (2 pages max on the papers) and one WebCT quiz. The first assignment ie paper one is to write what you know and experience with native americans. It that easy.

    Re: American Indian Studies 210

    I took this one a few years back. I will agree with the others here that it was a pretty easy class. However, you can make your life a lot harder if you can't sit back and accept the instructor's view of Native American's. Think victims of the white man: we gave them diseases and got them hooked on our fire water, and then we took their land and have been oppressing them ever since.

    Re: American Indian Studies 210

    I'm in it now and its fairly easy but a lot of busy work. We've read four books, wrote a paper, and gave two presentations. As long as you follow the rubrics and feel sorry for the Indians you get a good grade.

    Get Grant Arndt as a professor. No essays. All tests are online (aka open book, open note, open roommate, open everything). Easiest class I've taken at ISU.

    And you disagree with this? Ever studied American history?

    I took the class back in 1996. The instructor was part Potawatomi and he did not teach the class that way.

    And Dedric Willougby was in the class (when he showed up).

    Re: American Indian Studies 210

    I think the format has changed a few times over th years.

    When I took it, most of what we did in the class was watch movies to see Hollywoods "interpretation" of native Americans. We had a efw quizes and one big essay at the end of the year. I showed up for the class less often than Jared Homan did, but I got an A because I wrote a good essay.
