    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this class because it is filled with so much interesting topics and lessons. I will not lie everything will feel rushed but that is how the AP courses are, you need to learn so much information for the AP test. For some of you history might not be your forte and that’s alright, AP US History is not for everyone, but if you love history, America, the thrill of absorbing so much information in preparation for an exam you have been preparing for an entire year then this class is made for you. Give a shot, it will be worth your while!

    Course highlights:

    Appreciation for the human determination is what I gained from this class. The development of America was a major series of trial and error but yet here we are. My favorite part of this course would probably have to be the civil war, most my class enjoyed this part. When we began this section I thought to myself, “finally the Americans will stop being hypocrites and put an end to slavery!” Another one of my favorite parts to learn about was Nativism, ever heard of it? Nativism was a form of American ethnocentrism during the heat of immigration. What killed me about Nativism was the fact that these Americans were hating on the immigrants because they weren’t native born Americans when in fact none of them except for the Indians were native born Americans! Ah, America’s hypocrisy in its finest. Learning about these topics were my absolute favorite and I am sure it will be yours as well.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    DO YOUR NIGHTLY READING. You will get tired or too lazy but please do not slack off on this. Like in every other class it is best to always ask questions when in doubt, Ms. Matzel won't mind in fact she will be glad to answer. Attend the tutoring sessions provided and go don't skip out on the mock exam. Also buying a study guide would help some, but don't make the same mistake I did and buy it two weeks before the mock exam, make sure you buy it at the begining of the year and study it along side what you are learning.

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class, because it is not actually that hard as long as you read your textbook and know what they are talking about. Also our class is more of learning by doing the packets and DBQs, and our teacher is really supportive.

    Course highlights:

    From this course I gained a lot about time management since it is a lot of work but you have time to do it. If each day you are doing a small amount of work on your packets, you won't need to stay late at night finishing up.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend to read the textbook and take notes on a separate sheet or by putting post its on the paragraphs you consider important and summarize them.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it is more advanced and gets your brain to start thinking other than regular history with a 6th grade reading level in high school.

    Course highlights:

    I learned many things about the colonial US times and everything happened in chronological order, all the way up into present times.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Spend your time wisely , you should not have any free time in This class if you want to finish everything on time.
