    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend this course unless you are a student that loves specifically United States History. In addition, this class consumes a lot of time and should be taken into consideration with extra curricular activities and other classes. Finally, this specific class is very fast paced and requires the student to independently teach themselves all of the information.

    Course highlights:

    Even though this is a hard course, there are many things that you learn by the end of the year. While the textbook that I had was quite large, it contained in depth information that covered various topics throughout American history. Finally, this course taught me the way in which to write a coherent and strong essay that critiqued, analyzed, and discussed historical events.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed with this course, I would suggest reading the textbook in advance. For example, I would read the upcoming chapter during the weekend before beginning to discuss it in class. Therefore, you will be able to have more time to review the information. Also, I would suggest watching the Adam Norris AP United States History Youtube videos to review all the information!

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I love this course! We do a lot of activities and projects that help us understand the concepts. I enjoy doing the FRQ's and I like our study schedule.

    Course highlights:

    Having this course during the presidential election was very interesting but helped me learn better. It was so interesting to have the things we were learning about be the main topic of the world.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you are interested and study for quizzes.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    APUSH is a class I would recommend if you feel strongly and passionately about American history. It is a course that pushes you to your maximum in effort and really challenges a creative side of the brain in terms of how things could have gone if "--" happened, or if "---" never happened. It culminates in a lesson on how to organize and make sense of how the Unites States came to look today.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights would include, I suppose, the opposite of sugar coating. It gives you the gritty and real truth of the United States' success, and how the United States culminated into a super despite losing wars, despite multiple eras of civil unrest, despite financial struggles. It tells of the horrors America unleashed such as the Japanese internment camps or the unbridled and nearly unchecked trusts that ruled cities, and how the United States was able to either compensate or completely solve these problems. APUSH even touches upon racial problems that continue to plague our nation, and in the form of debate, even talk about how to fix these social inequalities.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice is to never stop studying. It is a course that does not go event by event, but rather how one event years or even decades beforehand changes the course of an upcoming event. It layers together different ideas and perspectives that make it, at times, difficult to comprehend, and as a result, you should always be updated on which party or group thought a certain way or acted in a certain manner. The most important piece of advice I can ever give anyone in this class that helped me achieve a 4/5 on the AP test was to make a timeline. From start to finish, jot down dates in order, add notes of how an event turned out and what it meant for the future, or how a previous event shaped this one. Everything is connected, and having it sit plainly in front of you is one of the most helpful things I've studied.
