    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    You will love this class if you like history. If you don't, well be prepared to study and put up with the lectures because they can be lengthy and boring if you're not interested in the subject. Mr. Barr is a great and engaging teacher and expects you to know the material, at least have a decent knowledge of what's going on.

    Course highlights:

    It's U.S. History, really starting with the Native Americans, Christopher Columbus, trading across the Atlantic all the way up to Richard Nixon, which is how far we got. It's really in-depth, you'll learn a lot of history cause that is the class, and just be prepared to memorize a whole bunch of events, dates, people, and other stuff. It's really crucial to know terms, called I.D.'s, and you'll definitely do a lot of writing cause it's an AP course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Again, if you like and enjoy history it probably won't be too hard. This is a challenging course and you'll have to read a lot. History isn't for everyone. Make sure you study for tests, don't procrastinate on the homework cause he likes to take it up in the beginning of class, take all the notes you can, participate in class, and know the material beforehand.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Beginning this course, most believed it would be especially easy because it was only history, but we were all terribly wrong. This course was one of the most challenging classes I took in all of high school. Answering multiple choice questions and writing essays had never been so taxing. Though all of this is true, I have never been part of a class where I had learned than that year spent in AP US History, it was by far the best and the healthiest challenge I have ever been faced with.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to analyze history more so than just learning the facts and the dates. Since multiple choice questions were such a huge part of the class and the AP exam, we learnedthe tricks often placed inside those answer choices. Nothing is clearly stated, it forces you to be analytical because oftentimes it seems the question and the answer choices show no correlation. By extension this helps ou delve deeper when writing essays because you are graded not only on how many facts you can think of that support the topic, but when you explore the motives and relations to other events that happened in history.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    While this course is extremely challenging, it is also extremely rewarding. I did spend more time studying for this class than I did any other, but once the year was over I could tell just how much I learned and I finally fully appreciated my teacher's efforts. Even more so once I got my AP exam scores back in July and saw that I passed.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it allows High school students to receive a college credit, which allows the students to go into college with credits.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were different economic and political periods during the history of the United States of America. These economic and political periods range from the American Revolution to the Vietnam war.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study the material for at least 2 to 3 hours a day. By doing this, it will be easier to pass the class because you will already be familiarised with the material.
