Lots of Writing
This class was tough.
Very informative class. Mr. Gillette makes the content very interesting. Besides learning world history, you will also be able to develop better organization and planning skills. The workload is only harsh if you don't plan out your week.
The major highlight of this course was doing the notecards. This was definitely the hardest part of the class, but it is also where I learned the most. It helped me learn and remember the different terms in world history. It also taught me that to complete a large task, I need to work a little on it every day.

Advice for students:
Congratulations on giving your life away to what will probably be the hardest and most time consuming class this year! This class will have around eight hours of work a week. If you spread it out across each day then you should only have to do about one hour of work a day. If you don’t manage your time wisely, you will probably have to stay up until 4:00 or 5:00 in the morning on thursdays. A lack of sleep will really affect your other classes, so try to manage your time and be proactive. The expected quality of work in this class is also high and to produce notecards that will get you a 10 you will have to not only be able to write facts from the book but also give your own insight, which will require much deeper thinking. There are many resources that you can get help from throughout the year, the most important one being Mr.Gillette himself. If you have any questions on the content you are learning or how he wants something done on a project, just go and ask him. You could ask him questions during lunch and his room is open during most of the time during lunch. Good luck, if you put in the work and effort, there is a good chance you will get an A!
