    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Although history is not my favorite subject, through this course I was able to challenge myself while learning fascinating history of the US.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed completing projects in this course because I was able to chose the topics that I was most interested in while using art and creativity to learn the material.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Time management is most important in this class. Remembering study daily instead of cramming on the last day before a test is the most important tip I can give.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class provides students with a better insight as to the United States' past and how it shaped our society and government into what it is today. It starts out exploring the lives of the Native Americans before the first settlements, walks students through the forming of the American government and the Revolutionary War, and explains the major events that then took place from that time to the end of the 20th century.

    Course highlights:

    The group project at the end of the course was a lot of fun. We had to choose an item that held historical significance, research it with a group, and then present our findings to the class through both a slideshow and a short video we made. I learned a lot about the 20th century in this class. Some of the highlights were learning about World Wars I and II, Civil Rights, and The Cold War.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students to buy an AP US History review book and to read through it before the AP exam. It really provides a clear and concise summary of what the class covers and prepares you for the exam. Also, watch John Green Crash-course videos on Youtube, they'll help you study for tests and to retain information.
