This course was so user friendly on every level we are being asked to grade. Professor Roosevelt makes issues clear, concise and leaves student with real understanding of the issues. Even when I was tired and did not feel particularly motivated, I found the lessons turned me around quickly into an eager student.

I started out by auditing the course, since it's not one of my all-time favorite topics, but ended up staying until the end and completing all quizzes. What a wonderfully designed course! Unlike other courses on US Constitutional history, which usually go monotonously through the articles and the amendments one by one, this course is lively and relevant. It does include an analysis of the Constitution, but the topics are presented in terms of their impact on current events. The lectures are short and sweet - a bit too short, if I may say so. The quizzes are very easy. That's what prevents it from being a 5-star course. Still, the professor is extraordinary, the visuals of the lectures are flawless (and helpful), and the material should be the concern of any informed citizen in the US or abroad. If you only take 1 course on US Constitutional history, then I recommend this one.
