    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class was pretty tough. But honestly, if you do the work you'll be just fine. Read the chapter each week and stay on top of your outside reading and if worse comes to worst you'll pass with the "honorable C" and that's okay!

    Course highlights:

    I learned much more about the country than I ever thought I could. I loved reading Howard Zinn's "A People's History" for my outside reading because it gave me a new perspective on the history of the States and discussing with my intelligent peers about the book was honestly a lot of fun.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You'll have a great time in this class because the things you learn are super interesting and it's neat to see how history repeats itself. That being said, stay focused, stay interested, and stay on top.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recomment this course because the teacher is highly knowledgable, making it a class better suited to learn. Also, because it is an Advanced Placement Course, the students are smarter (normally from G.A.T.E. World History), and you are able to have great group discussions. You learn a lot in a positive environment, filling in gaps of knowledge of our nation's history throughout the way.

    Course highlights:

    In this course, you will learn the truth about many misconceptions you were taught in elementary and/or middle school, or maybe even as an underclassmen. Pocahontas didn't marry John Smith; the Depression wasn't caused by Black Tuesday; Some former presidents owned slaves; and Teddy Bears were inspired by former President Teddy Roosevelt. You also learn a lot about the changes in cultural identity for multiple spheres throughout time, and will come to realize that some things aren't as resolved as you think they are.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed, you have to complete the summer assignment and do well. He grades them very easily and normally gives extra credit points to projects he liked or could tell took a lot of effort. From then on, make sure you do your weekly I.D. terms. As long as you complete them every week, I guarantee you will get a good grade. Also, he requires outside reading assignments, and reccommends and provides possible material for you to read. DO NOT wait until the last minute; even starting a week earlier would be risky- especially if you have more than one AP course. Also, try to complete all optional extra credit assignments because those help to boost your grade in place of a bad I.D. quiz or missing notes. Overall, don't get too stressed out, because having an A in this class is very possible. Just strive to achieve your best.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is a challenge, but it is independent work like a traditional college course. It is a high school class with high expectations for a student, as in :being prepared, well educated from the weekly homework, and studying for major tests. It is difficult to comprehend all the information you take in at once, but it is possible by keeping up with the class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned in the first semester a lot about the early presidents, slavery, early expansion, and the start of the industrial revolution taking place in the U. S. There is much more, one of the most interesting was learning about John Brown, who was claimed to be insane in many textbooks for being a white man wanting to free the slaves.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take APUSH it is the best way to understand American history; it will be a heavy responsibility but it is worth It. Keep up with the homework and study for each quiz and/or tests, they will contribute to much of your overall grade.
