    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class has been a wonderful experience. Social Studies in the past has always been about dates, names, and timelines...this class however has brought meaning and value into our history. It has brought questions and controversies, studies of people as they should be and so much more. This is a class about war strategy, tragedy, skepticism, love, genocide, racism, compromises, politics, and everything that has ever made us human...or inhuman.

    Course highlights:

    So far we've learned everything from the Native Americans BEFORE Columbus discovered America to Teddy Roosevelt and the Gilded Era. We've learned about the Puritans in the north and how they compared to non-family oriented, slave driven, business crowded south in the Chesapeake region, the 7 Years War and how that impacted the Independence of America, our Declaration of Independence and how this compares to our ideals of government today, how the north compared to the south in business after the cotton gin was invented, and how this sparked the civil war and how the civil war changed its purpose halfway to be about slaves, the discrimination against African Americans and how they were still slaves to society, and lastly we have learned about the Big Business era and how this shaped our society and the way our government interacts with the public.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just as it is for any other course, do your work. Love your work. Be engaged in class and really think about the material. Ask questions. Synthesis -- always relate history to the present. Make connections. AP might be focused on essay writing and your skills set, but you must understand the significance of what is being taught to you.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it's fun to learn about the history of the United States. Mr.Valdez creates a good experience as he explains and describes the events that happened a long time ago.

    Course highlights:

    That it gave me information on how we gained land in America. Also how we fought a battle at fort Sumter and many more battles over slavery and mnifeat destiny.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just pay attention to the teacher and get the work done. It may be a lot of reading but don't procrastinate because it's easy to do. He'll help you any way possible that may be needed.
