Learning pure html vs using dreamweaver

I am a photographer and I am frustrated that I can't customize my page the way that I like it so I decided to take some classes at the local college.
Right now I am enrolled in two classes, one called Web Publishing and the other one called Web site Development. I realized that they are the same class doing the same thing but the Web Publishing class is doing it without dreamweaver, basically using notepad to write the code.
Now I know NOTHING about coding, I don't plan to be a webmaster or anything like that. I just want to understand some of the basics so when I watch a tutorial, I can understand what they are saying.
When I asked my teacher this same question, he said I would have a better understanding if I take both of the classes. His analogy was it is like learning math. With the html class, I am doing it by hand while the 2nd class I am learning math with a calculator.
So my question is, with a program like dreamweaver that makes everything so easy, is it worth taking a class on html without using dreamweaver?
