    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Fong always brought history to life in the classroom. We always did introduction plays to figure out what we would be learning in our next unit. I always looked forward going to this class. He one time even made a fake guillotine to class to compare the reign of terror to history in the US.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about how deeply history means to us Americans. As the saying goes history repeats itself and it's important we learn from our mistakes. We are America which stands for freedom and power to its people. We want what is right and the best for all. Mr. Fong taught me that life will always be coming up with new ways to challenge us as human beings,but it's our job to continue to move on and live life to the fullest.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is an amazing course and you will never get bored because you are constantly doing something new. Everyday will be different, it maybe hard at times but trust you will work through it and find the answer you just have to keep looking. Mr. Fong will call you out at times but it is because he knows what you are capable of. Teachers never pick on you because they don't like you, they do it because they care.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because you learn about a high amount of information that you didn't know before. It also focused on how the United States became what it is and why it happened.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about other smaller details that were not well known, like that in the Boston Massacre, it wasn't only Americans that were killed but an African American, named Crispus Attucks, was also assassinated. You get to learn a lot more about the United States not only in the country but also how it influenced another country or why another country would want to declare war on the United States.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Since this is an AP class and we had homework every week, I recommend them to finish the summaries of each chapter by Wednesday so they have time to review the notes before taking the test on Friday. In addition, participate in class and listen to the teacher because what they say is important.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is recommended for all students in high school. But, it is a challenging, yet, fun course to learn. Do not just brush it off while you get easy grades in other classes. It's best to learn now, than learn later.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were just about eveything taught in this course. I was very intrigued about the life of John F. Kennedy and the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The reasons were, "why?" I wanted to know why these bombings happened, why the war happened, and why the decisions made, were made. In the end, I got my answer after sections of reading, numerous documentaries, and debates with the teacher and class to help me with understanding.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention. Don't stress over one thing. If you don't understand, it's okay to ask. This course can be very confusing and difficult as it was for me. One thing that made it fun and easker for me was that I found one thing in this course and in each section to be curious about. If you can't find anything or nothing makes you curious, don't worry. Ask a follow up question, for example, "If this is what happened, then how are people locally (or) nationally going to react?" Something like that may help the gears in your brain to ask more questions to help you.
