    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.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this course to every student out there because not only does this help you out when applying to colleges or earning college credits, it's a genuinely fun course. As the class goes on, things leaned from early childhood start to come back to memory, and connections between historical events and people become established that may not have been obvious before. It is said that history requires a lot of memorizing, but this is nor much of an issue in this class, especially if any US History material was learned before this class. The connections and concepts made and learned in this course allows the retention of information to be much easier.

    Course highlights:

    The biggest take away from this course was learning how to read in between the lines of texts and situations, and learn how to figure things out rather than rattle of some memorized dates and vocabulary words.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Learn how to make connections between things. People in history and events in history didn't stop existing simply because you don't see them mentioned everywhere throughout he textbook. For example, George Washington and Benjamin Franklin interacted during the decision to declare independence, and even so during the discussion of whether or not to ratify a constitution. It may seem obvious, but at first, one wouldn't think much about something like that.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course teaches you in depth about the struggles of our country. The teacher works hard to make sure you understand the material, and preps you for the AP test.

    Course highlights:

    While taking this course, President Trump was elected. The teacher never failed to inform us of the politics going on around us, as well as connect them to the past.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read every day! He gives a quiz everyday so use course notes and quizlet to help you study.
