    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course! This course was wonderful, and extremely beneficial. The teacher was amazing, and was able to capture the attention of the students for the duration of the class period. The different methods of teaching and the varied projects allowed everyone to be able to learn to the best of their abilities.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course was definitely the learning environment and the overall subject material. I learned in depth knowledge out U.S. History, and have all but mastered several different essay patterns. I have been able to take a small paragraph prompt and turn it into a five page essay in less than an hour. Now, I am much more confident in my writing abilities and have developed an intense interest in the world around us. In this class, I have learned the benefits of working together but also knowing when it is best to work alone.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Henry Clay is the single most important person in history. In order to succeed in this course, always pay attention and do the reading! Although it seems appealing to skip over the reading in order to have some extra time to sleep, it isn't worth it. The tests are difficult, and the course is definitely rigorous. The teacher is very helpful, one just has to be willing to ask for help. Always do the extra credit if it is offered! Sit by people that won't distract you from your work, and always be respectful. Also, make friends with the teacher and form bonds with the people in your class, some of my fondest memories about school stem from this class.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for its highly detailed and thorough look at history that is supported by the teacher's outstanding teaching methods. The class also has many discussions and the overall tone of the class is lighthearted. The only reason I wouldn't recommend this class is that it has a lot of information to process and know which is a highly surpassable obstacle.

    Course highlights:

    I think the highlights of this course were its many entertaining discussions between the teacher and fellow students. This allowed for the class to be much more organic and free-flowing. I learned, alongside the main curriculum of US history for the course from Columbus to modern day, many indirect lessons about speaking up in discussions and being diligent in my work for those large assignments.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice I would give other students alongside the usual study and memorize the facts is to be immersed in the class. I would recommend enjoying the atmosphere that the teacher, the curriculum, and the students present. The way assessments are structured require less of filling in a correct fact in multiple choice and more of knowing what you have read and seeing how it connects with everything; therefore, the class requires you to feel the history and understand it from a new perspective.
