    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    In high school, it is necessary to take a course on United States History. However, why not take an AP class of a required high school course. Not only getting that extra grade point average, but also passing the AP exam will mean college credit(s).

    Course highlights:

    Mr. Schneider is perhaps the greatest academic teacher I have ever had. He made history FUN. Therefore, the lectures of the most complex historical events were described in 5 simple sentences or less. Also participation is heavy in here. That means you're not just grinding through the book every day in class. There are group projects, presentations, and even interesting debates in this course. The good thing about this class is that there is always something to do. Even if you finish ahead of time, doing extra credit assignments or the extra five minutes of studying can easily boost your grade by a significant amount. Also passing the AP course also mean college credits.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    This is not a hard course. Any student has the knowledge to do this and pass the class with a fair or better grade. The only catch to this is that you have to be willing to push yourself a little bit because a teacher will want to cover an entire chapter out of the textbook within five days or less.. The homework is not never ending, however procrastination can be your worst enemy here.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher is very engaging and describes the importance of the events and the feelings of the time so students recognize these historical events and people as an actual part of our history rather than just another page in the textbook.

    Course highlights:

    This course was,one of the best learning experiences I have ever had and left the classroom actually fealing that I know and understand in depth the events our country went through to get where we are today. One of the most interesting things to me was that women had to fight just as much and even longer than slaves did to earn the rights of a white man. I also found it intriguing how we claimed to of colonized and discover America when the native Americans had been there much longer than us. Taking this course helped me to realize how flawed our countries history is, wet how far we have come to get where we are today with a diverse and equal nation.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not blow of the reading as you will keep up so much easier and be able to stay engaged in class discussion. The teacher is very open to discussion and often talks about related subjects, so don't be afraid to join in!
