    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course takes you through the history of the United States. You learn about the beginning of the country, to now. It teaches you about the wars, peace, and presidents. It is interesting and enlightening. You are better able to understand the country and the history.

    Course highlights:

    The major highlight of this course was the History Day Project. It was amazing being able to choose a topic and dive in. To be able to teach yourself, and then make a project in order to teach others. It was a fun and it helped me learn.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to read the book. The book goes more into the topics you talk about in class. You need to take notes in class, and pay attention. If you don't, you won't do well on the tests. Everything works together, so you need to pay attention.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I am indifferent when it comes to the recommendation of U.S. History because I a more interested in World History. However, I think it is important to learn about the history of our own country because there is a lot I did not know.

    Course highlights:

    Throughout the course of U.S. History, I have learned about a few events that caught my attention. I loved learning about the Boston Tea Party because I find it funny that it was used as a method of protest. I also greatly enjoyed learning about the Ghost Dance. Although, the only reason I know about the Ghost Dance is because I am writing a research paper on it. In case you did not know, the Ghost Dance was performed by Native American tribes to summon their dead ancestors to help them fight the whites.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice to all students pondering the idea of taking U.S. History would be to really decide whether they are a specific detail based learner or are better at understanding the big picture of a topic. If they answer the preceding question with the "big picture," then I would argue that U.S. History is a great course for them to take.
