    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.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course really opens your eyes as to how much your personal effort into studying the material will contribute to your understanding of it. Read the book and take good notes, it will give you a good sense as to what to expect from some course in college.

    Course highlights:

    The best part of this class was definitely the teacher. While the book will provide you with knowledge on any given topic, Mr. Dawson's experiences with certain points in history make it more interesting and memorable.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not fall asleep during lecture and take practice essays seriously. If you study for each unit test and prepare for each essay and DBQ as if it were for the AP exam, the course and test will take care of itself.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Students are able to learn U.S History on a deeper level. This course connects historical events together, and allows students to see both the "big picture" of American history as well as monumental moments that AP students are expected to know.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the significance of historical events as well as patterns that a historian may notice when looking back on American history.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is an AP class, so it is expected that the student makes their own effort to apply him/herself by reading and studying on their own time.
