    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course not solely because of content but because of the instructor. Mrs. Mollenkopf gives her students an approach to US history that is unique, engaging, challenging and a memorable experience. By discussing interesting topics in the time period with projects to follow, it creates a productive and creative environment that is enjoyable for anyone. AP US History is class meant for questioning and investigating as it leads students to compare the past social and economic norms with societies today.

    Course highlights:

    From this course, I gained a new perspective around the creation of America and all the diversity within it. It reminded me of how diverse America was and should always be with religion to fashion. The diversity of projects is engaging as you learn and present about dances, music, fashion, books, politics, diction, and wars.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this course be attentive with homework, notes and reading. All these things will be critical in writing essays, short responses, multiple choice tests and for the AP test. Do not procrastinate on note cards and be prompt about turning in assignment because lost point will not be so easily forgiven. Mrs. Mollenkopf also gives extra credit or special advantages on test and quizzes if you can excel at "Mollenkopf trivia" so be sure to pay attention, write it down and remember!
