    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Work load was immense, but teacher was extremely helpful and knowledgeable on world history. He is always willing to help as long as you ask for it.

    Course highlights:

    My sense of geography is way better than most people in my grade. Plus, I can always spew random facts about world history. My general knowledge and time line of history is also a lot more accurate.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't procrastinate. Start on homework early. Don't cheat, either, because it ruins things for everyone. Study for finals months in advance as well.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    As a child, I loved history. Mr. Gillette is one of the few teachers that taught history that did not make my favorite subject unbearable. He uses a wide variety of activities to portray different events and trends in history. Not only were his lessons interesting, Mr. Gillette was also very approachable and engaging with students. Despite being friendly with students, he is still able to enforce his authority with the great amount of respect that he has amassed.

    Course highlights:

    One of the most memorable events of this course was when Mr. Gillette made the entire class reenact the French revolution without us being aware of the situation. He set up a hierarchy where the students with the most money with them on 1 day will have authority over other students; he allowed the class the plan their own rebellion against the "royalty." Through activities, like such, he taught use the significance of historical events by forcing us to live and experience it. With his teaching methods, we learn the the different trends of world history.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    One piece of advice is to never procrastinate. World history has at least 40,000 and to cover and understand each period of time is not easy. You definitely need to paste yourself when studying for this course

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Even though there is a plenty work, it will get less and less over time. The homework and the class itself improve your thinking skills greatly.

    Course highlights:

    I've learned so much, first I didn't know how to do commentary, but after the attempts, I've been so good at them ever since. Another thing I learn obviously was history! I was able to absorb large quantities of information.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't procrastinate, make sure you understand the chapter before proceeding.
