    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because it challenged me. Taking the AP course, I was exposed to heavier workload than I have experienced before but this heavy workload was extremely valuable to me. It train me to be attentive and focused with my time management skills. It exposed me to the fact that I wouldn't be micromanaged—not on Mr. Murphy's class or in college. It was my first taste of that college experience.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight for me was the depth—history being one of my favorite subjects being in AP we went to a detail that I hadn't seen before. Everything in class was extremely through—granted that meant information overload at times but having finished the course I am appreciative. With this knowledge of political history I feel more rounded as an individual and more critical of the ideologies that I come across.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I feel like the major element of success is time managment, with the heavy work long and required readings I feel it is best to be honest with yourself and allot the time necessary. Make time to really sit down with yourself and do the work because a rushed assignment will not only show in your grade but in your shaky understanding of the material. So don't cut corners or do work last minute, make an effort to stay after school and complete it then. You will thank yourself later for it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this class to everyone who is interested in knowing more about the world! Of course it information pertains to European History, however there are way more knowledge about different regions. It is a competitive class and if you have the teacher that is outgoing and good at making the class interesting, you will have the best experience ever! My mindset has changed about how I see the world and it is just fantastic to learn more about the world you live in!

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the human race itself. The different movements from the scientific revolution all the way to the existentialist period just shows that the human race has developed and in some cases involving the genocides very cruel. The highlights however were the times were we connected the relationships between the past and to the current situations. For example the Balfour Declaration of 1917 is the result of the current fight between Israel and Palestine. Being high school students and being able to interpret difficult documents and making connections is just the highlight!

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    This is a college level class so it is difficult. Even if you do not like history, You will come to love this class because it is just more about history, its about learning about the world around you. Just make sure you study a lot and be really involved in the class. The AP test is now different from the past year so study and take as much practice tests as you can to find which part you need help in or which part you excel in.
