    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    AP US History, although difficult, is a course that teaches extremely relevant material. Everything addressed in this course went hand in hand with my english course as well when attempting to understand major historical events, and their relevance in today's status quo. This is one of those "I will need to know this when im older!" type courses.

    Course highlights:

    I personally enjoyed learning about the early colonies, and the Cold War. Both of these topics were covered extensively during the course, and were quite interesting. Another highlight was having a fairly small class, of course this is subject to what school you go to etc, but for the most part this course allows for student-teacher discussion. Major highlights included class discussions that were led by fellow students on the material we read that night. Not only was it textbook learning, but other articles were assigned, and we were able to get several perspectives to a single historical event. This made me fully aware of all perspectives and reasoning leading to a particular event.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    First of all, DO THE READING. Depending on the teacher, but for the most part, the tests and quizzes will not only cover that weeks reading, but also go into past reading and how it relates to shat was covered that week. So if you get behind, catching up is the worst, its much easier to just stay on top of the work- trust me. Make sure that in essays you relate the material to past historical events and how that ties in, as well as how that event is similar to the one you are addressing. Take good class notes! if for any reason you don't complete the reading on time for the test, those may save you. Lastly, do not be afraid to ask your teacher for methods of improvement, this advice is pretty general to the course, but your actual teacher will be able to give you their own tips and tricks that they grade on to help you succeed.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    While in this course I was learned a lot of information how the country's economic system works. It was really interesting to see how the simplest things can make a huge impact of the financials of America.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part was all of the projects we did, especially the personal budget.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always listen to the teacher, and stay caught up and on top of all assignments.
