    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Dalton is a very funny, entertaining teacher when informing his students about US History. He makes the class so much more fun, and makes his students want more everyday.

    Course highlights:

    I learned many key terms that were needed in the AP test, and Mr. Dalton taught us them in different ways, such as in video form, or on paper sheets.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to study for the AP test everyday, or you will not pass the test. At least one hour a day studying key terms and vocab will help you get a 3 or higher.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I defiantly recommend taking an APUSH course to take advantage of getting to know your country if you want to be involved in a career in the government for your future. Not only will you obtain the fundamentals of how the government (US) runs, but you'll learn the values of what this nation was founded upon as well as the founding fathers' intent of direction for the nation to lead up to the present

    Course highlights:

    I learned more of the founding father's beliefs to master politicians, such as LBJ. I really was intrigued in learning about the presidencies of different presidents from the 40's to present, because we see reform and changes in the government that really impact us as a society today- such as social security. Really, all this class is based on the lecture, you certainly won't get much from a textbook than a really ambitious teacher. At times my teacher made the class come to life, especially to those like myself where my mind tends to wander while correlating it to a similar topic, I learned from APUSH that there's more than just a government in this country, but the pursuit of happiness.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Defiantly take notes, it's very necessary to process the information in that manner, as well as you do look back upon it as reference. For myself, I found that reading and creating hand gestures while reading would help me to Redeemer- but that's just myself. Often times I would look at YouTube videos of the topic (the unit) to get a brief summary of what happened after reading. Note that US History can be seen as a TV show, that's how i seen it too, new characters are introduced, but their prime goal is to set a future for everyone through life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness- I never forgot anything when I would think this way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    AP US History is a challenging course but it pays off after taking the course, beyond obtaining memorization skills , it will also help with essay writing, since there lots of essay to write (CC, CCOT, periodization and causation).

    Course highlights:

    After taking AP US History you will not fear taking anymore AP classes , since AP US history is one of the most challenging course.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always make notes of each period, write down important people and events, this will pay off before taking the APUSH test ,since it will allow to memorize thing easier. As well try to make acronyms for important events.
