    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher is passionate about the subject and puts in his best effort to help students.

    Course highlights:

    Every day you get reading homework and on the next day, students are quizzed on the reading. I learned about different political processes and how the government works.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't procrastinate on the reading. Do the reading on the same day as it is assigned.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    In the beginning I thought history would be boring and lifeless but taking this class gives you a different light to history. I would definitely recommend it because you'll learn about events and people that you never heard of. This class gives you an insight to what people went through over time, you get a huge sense of awareness regarding the impact of religion and other things, and you learn about the magnitude of how bad slavery and African Americans were treated. But to me, the biggest reason why I would recommend taking this course is because you truly learn how all the events that took place in US history brought about the present situation that we all have today whether you are white, black, brown, man, or woman.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course to me, is about the women and African American issue. I learned how much people fought towards emancipation and how this all correlated to women wanting more equality. I learned that the fight to emancipation was a platform that women used to use their voice, become involved, and fight against the norm of women being inferior.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are someone considering this course, I suggest that you purchase the AMSCO US History book because it's a very simple yet informative book to have for the class. There's a page in the end of every chapter that has the important words, events, people, and ideas listed, and you'll find it easier to remember information because the wording that it uses is so much more simplified compared to the US History textbook you'll receive from the school. Aside from that, my other advice would be to read whatever is assigned to you every night. Don't think you can get away with not doing your homework because it's only reading. The teacher gives you daily quizzes on what you were asked to read. They aren't hard but my best advice to his daily quizzes is to remember key dates and people, and pay attention to descriptive details (for example: What region was tobacco grown? The south or the north?) Lastly, an important advice I give you is to recognize how events connect to one another and what type of events occurred in the presidents' administration.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I have a vested interest in history and politics, and learning about such material in a relatively entertaining way was a win-win in my books. In a way, it also felt good to excel at the AP test, knowing that you can put your passion to the test.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a great deal amount of how the United States government formed, and how it works, but more importantly, all of this was taught during the election season. With the political storm brewing around us, the concepts we are taught in this class became much more applicable to the real world, with historical patterns seemingly repeating themselves.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Try to read the content as you would a good story. Trying to memorize information like from a biology book is tedious, and not particularly helpful. If you can really get invested in the story of the nation, remembering things becomes extremely simple. Of course, the main issue would be gaining interest in the subject in the first place.
