    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class teaches you to critically think and see beyond just the facts. Your mind is expanded to consider a variety of factors and connect different time periods.

    I learned so much about our nation's history and how to apply it to our nation's problems today.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you read the articles that you are given because these will be key to class discussions.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Goepel is one of the most knowledgable teachers I have ever had. He is a great person to learn history from. The caveat I would have is that you cannot expect him to teach you everything. You have to be informed and ask questions, and he will certainly be able to answer them. Overall, though, great class if you do the reading.

    Course highlights:

    This course is so broad because it must cover all of US history, but Mr. Goepel does a great job of covering all the bases. The best parts for me were the early 1800s and the early 1900s. I felt that these time periods were taught the best because others often had to be rushed in order to prepare for the AP test. Goepel connect broad themes very well, though, and you will come out of the class very well-informed about the history of the nation. All you have to do is put in the work, which I highly recommend.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the powerpoints. Read the powerpoints. Read the powerpoints. As long as you read you will be better prepared in class, you can ask questions, Mr. Goepel will like you a lot, and you will learn so much more. I also recommend reading the historian essays thoroughly if you have time because they are very interesting. If you read and stay on top of things, you will be fine. Also, don't procrastinate on his essays. I did sometimes, and it became hell to finish them. Put the work in and spread it out.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Zucker truly cares about each of his students and is willing to do whatever it takes to teach them right. If you don't respond well to lecture, he has several different teaching methods among which he switches regularly, like group work, debate, and individual research, and if you do like lecture, than you're in luck because he's one of the best lecturers I've ever studied under. His assignments are quite tough, and he expects a lot from his students, but it only pushes you to do better. He's just a great guy, couldn't have been luckier to get him for this course, hope you get him too!

    Course highlights:

    He organized the course by topic which was very cool and helped me understand the content better in context–for example, our first unit was economics I think, so we studied economics in the US from the revolution to now, and because of that method I retained the information better because it was in the context of the broader history of one particular topic.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in class. His assignments are few and far between, but if you can't remember what we talked about in class you're in high water. Which is to say you're screwed. But yea, pay attention in class, study thoroughly for his tests, and write your essays with no fluff.
