    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course taught me how to deal with AP or college styled classes. It taught me how to be self reliant with my study tools and to be able to teach and work in groups of students.

    Course highlights:

    I gained from this course a shift in my ability to take tests, read textbooks and overall learn from the course in a way that kept myself engaged in a challenging course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    One must study the material that he/she is given, but also be able to make connections in the knowledge presented. Connections and learning the "Big-Picture Outlook" with this course will aid the journey towards success.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Sociology is applicable knowledge that touches on the impacts of culture and how to overcome the ethnocentricity that is so inherit on the American society. You learn about your friends, family, and society in a hands on way that will always be ingrained in your mind. We also covered on the differences of culture and how to transfer characteristics and customs among different countries, religions, or generations. However, among all of these differences arise the similarities that span across all cultures that are necessary for human to thrive. We all need communicative relationships, affection, a form of relief, government, and art. It's important to recognize the intensity of human connection and fortify our relationships with other nations because we are all impacted by everyone else, and we need to make sure the impacts trickle down and help our future generations as well as our own.

    Course highlights:

    Mr. Donaldson. He was the highlight. He teaches the material in a understanding, challenging way that includes every belief system and cultural background in an accepting environment of learning. We learned about harsh stereotypes, interesting rituals, necessary human connections, and how to accept other despite cultural differences. But even outside of the curriculum, Mr. Donaldson teaches you how to become a better person, and becomes a future mentor who support you through all that you have to offer.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to hear things you don't want to. There will be opinions you highly disagree with and material you don't want to learn. But it's an important skill to keep your mouth shut sometimes and rely on the righteousness of your own ideas. You also have to be prepared to study and study some more, and still be wrong. His tests push you and force you to your limits. Don't be afraid to ask for help though, he is the best person to do so.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a very instructive course about the general history of the entire world since basically the beginning of humanity, and the instructor keeps it fun while simultaneously making sure learning still occurs.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of this course is what Gomer called "Picasso notes". At the end of a unit, as a quick five-minute study thing for those of us who just wanted a quick recap, Gomer would go up to the board and just write down anything and everything he could think o that might be helpful to us. It was a great last-minute study tool.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always read the chapters. I mean it, it's necessary if you want to pass the class, forget passing the AP test.
