    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course, it goes over an incredible amount of history in a relatively short period of time. I was lucky to have a teacher who is passionate about the subject, so it made the lectures and discussions incredibly interesting. The class also taught me a lot of important skills like researching information and analyzing historical documents.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the best parts of this course were the fun facts and stories that my teacher would include in her lectures; they helped to bring life to the subject. Another highlight would be taking notes on sweat shops the day our teacher turned the lights off and the heat all the way up! On top of the minor facts and details, I learned about the grand scope of American history.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready, every time you go to class, to write about a new historical document and then take rapid notes for the remainder of the period. Also, ask a lot of questions! Especially about DBQ's and the AP exam. You don't want to be confused on any of that! This class is a lot of work, but it can also be a lot of fun, especially if you have friends in the same period.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    More often than not, the teacher makes or breaks a class. AP US History was one of the best classes I've ever taken because Mrs. Greenfield is the most qualified, knowledgable teacher. She is also willing to go above and beyond to help her students, and pushes her students to be perform to the best of their abilities. The AP exam had changed the year I took this class, making it almost unpredictable, but my teacher prepared us so well that the majority of my class passed with 3's and above on the exam.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed Mrs. Greenfield's games and simulations, because unlike other classes where the activities seemed unrelated and unnecessary, each of hers were well planned out and held a concept for the students to learn in a different environment. Additionally, the books we read in class were all well-chosen, solidifying information and events we had studied in class. My favorite one, The Jungle by Upton Sinclair, is a book that made the corruption of the American meat packing industry come alive. As a reader, I appreciated how in depth and transparent the author was about the evils of capitalism.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I think the most important part in any class is to find out what your best studying method is and to utilize it, whether it is reading aloud, repetitive writing, making up a story to remember and event, etc. Furthermore, actively participate and listen to discussions and lectures so your memory of events and facts can be reinforced, making it easier to study for tests and the exam later.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I learned so much from this course, and the teacher was extremely friendly and knowledgeable.

    Course highlights:

    I really enjoyed taking this course because the teacher made our country's history come to life, whether we were learning about the Civil War or the American Revolution. I learned so much about the history of America that has still stuck with me today.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to spend time studying your notes and textbook meticulously, because she doesn't always cover everything in her lectures.
