Always Do the Reading
Background Knowledge Expected
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Mr. Blackwell does an amazing job in making this subject interesting and understandable. I gained an interest for a subject that was hard for me to grasp. This course brought to life names and historical events I have heard of before just never knew. I recommend taking this class to any high school junior.
I learned important names and dates of historical events. I gained a better knowledge of not only different time periods in our U.S. history but the circumstances involved. I also learned how to write an amazing evidence based essay with confidence.

Advice for students:
The key to succeeding in the course is to always do your reading. There are quizzes every class meeting and it is important to keep up with that to understand the information and maintain a good grade in the class. I also recommend getting the 5 steps to a 5 study guide and using it. Mr. Blackwell uses some of the questions from the book on each chapter test so it is a helpful study guide. Finally, ask questions. Never hesitate to ask a question about a subject, because I am sure you aren't the only student curious or confused about the topic.
