Taking History with my LAS cohort was a very unique experience. Along with the curriculum, our cohort learned skills that will help us with the rest of our lives. After the first class, we knew we were in for a treat. Our first roadblock was being able to hear our professor. Unless you were in the first row, there was no way you were going to be able to hear our soft-spoken professor. This was no match for our cohort. Everyone would take the notes on the board, however one of the girls who sat in the front would make a quizlet for every test on what our professor would say. We learned how to work together in tough situations for the success of the class. Our next roadblock was with our writing intensive papers. As a cohort, we peer reviewed our papers before we turned them in to guarantee that everyone would get the best possible grade.
