    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I absolutely loved this course! It was a lot of hard work, and some late nights, but it was absolutely worth it. I learned so much invaluable information about U.S. history that I still use today, and I felt extremely prepared for the AP test, as well as future AP and IB courses. Ms. King is an amazing teacher, who you can tell really cares about her students and wants us to be successful.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the most important aspects of each era of United States history, from the pre-revolution period of the 1700s to the George W. Bush administration of the early 2000s. We studied each president and their "highlights" very thoroughly through textbook reading, in-class discussion, lectures, movies, and various study guides. My favorite period to learn about was the post-depression/WWII era. I really admire Franklin D. Roosevelt's moral character and strong ideals, which despite his own imperfections, pulled the United States out of the Great Depression and helped defeat Germany in World War II.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend keeping scrupulously organized, because you're going to need it. If you take the class outlines at a steady pace, such as working on them for an hour a day, then they'll be a breeze. If you leave them all until Saturday, you're going to have hours of work to do over the weekend. I would also recommend taking very good notes and looking over them before the AP test.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this class as a starter AP class because it eases you into the AP/IB world. The homework is self-directed, which may be troublesome to those who have a hard time staying on track. The teacher is really lenient which can be good and bad.

    Course highlights:

    In this class a chapter was due every week until you finish reading the textbook. The chapters are often very long, but overall I think that it is a very good resource for the test. The presidential highlights at the end are really time consuming but I think it really helps you get an idea of the full picture of US history.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You definitely need to have set schedule or plan as to when you will get the homework done because it can pile up and become very stressful. You should also understand that you cannot be perfect at everything, so making mistakes and getting a few low scores on the unit tests is okay.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because of the tests. The teacher gives out assignments that actually benefit students and help them prepare for the test. The class also strengthens discipline and creates a habit of planning and prioritizing.

    Course highlights:

    This class was relatively simple but offered a lot. Most of all, it was fair and the teacher was straight forward. I learned a lot about the political system and American beliefs over the years, from colonial days to the 60's.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the homework and study for the tests. The homework makes up a considerable amount of a students grade. The tests can be challenging but prepare students for what will have to expect for college.
