    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Callahan is a very friendly teacher, and while history is at times difficult to liven up, students learn an incredible amount of material. Moreover, there were some pretty fun projects. It is pretty focused on what's given in the textbook, which prepares you well for the AP exam, but we also used other textbooks to examine how perspectives on history change based on who's writing and how it can be difficult to find an unbiased view.

    Course highlights:

    Mr Callahan is a very thoughtful teacher, and I really appreciated how he framed incidents in history. He definitely took an approach that was more well-rounded than other history teachers I've had in the past. I think my favorite unit was learning about the pre-colonial America, because it was largely new material.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to do lots of homework, even if he doesn't check it.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Prepares students for the advanced placement assessments. The class can be boring at times but it is imperative that you stay focused because almost everything is important. You will never regret doing the homework thoroughly, it's very important.

    Course highlights:

    Learned about United states History, focused on learning why things are and connecting that to how things were. Nothing is sugar coated and it was enjoyable at times when we would have big group discussions.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    The homework and the book are the best study guides for the rather difficult tests. You should try to get him in the middle of the day because it will get boring at times but you have to stay awake and you're less likely to do so early in the morning or at the end of the day.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is one of the more rigorous courses on campus, where you are really forced to learn diligently, and any type of slacking off will show in your final grade. You will learn a lot under Mr. Callahan, the only downside would be his monotone voice, it can get rather boring ahaha.

    Course highlights:

    You will have a good understanding of american history, and what made america what it s today.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You have to have good study habits, enjoy reading, and be a diligent note taker. The test are pretty much your entire grade, so your preparation for the test is very important.
