    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    APUSH is the history most students are probably most comfortable with, but the course explores each era in much greater depth than ever before. The work is interesting and (though tedious) relevant to the lessons being taught.

    Course highlights:

    The course as taught by Mrs. Hodge is very much like what would be expected from a college lecture. Mrs. Hodge is passionate about her area of study and finds ways to incorporate media, anecdotes and class discussions to engage students and encourage participation.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not expect to cheat your way through this course. Though it will be VERY tempting my biggest piece of wisdom is that cheating is not worth it and not necesssry. Because there is so much opportunity for extra credit in this class, the only gain from cheating is having all said extra credit removed from the grade and deadlines made final. Expect to put in work for the course and look up videos on youtube if reading the book isn't your thing!!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for people who are not just following the honors route. I would recommend this course to anyone who is interested in history. Hodge is by far the most qualified teacher for this job that I have ever met.

    Course highlights:

    I gained an insight as to what our country was like from a more realistic side. Everything wasn't always hunky-dory as a lot of textbooks try to portray it. As a country we did some pretty shady things and Hodge took extra care to highlight these events alongside the things that made us good.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't get behind on thought questions, they will come to haunt you. I cannot stress that enough. I lost so much sleep trying to finish those because I procrastinated so much.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. Hodge's class is awesome! She's gives her students a lot of independence, but also ensures that they are adequately prepared for the AP exam in May. She's very interesting, is passionate about history, and knows all of the material extremely well.

    Course highlights:

    The most useful thing that I took away from this class is how to effectively write an AP style essay. Hodge does a really good job of implementing writing assignments throughout the year to get you prepared to write on the AP test, and makes sure that each students knows how to get across their point effectively and efficiently, while still displaying their knowledge of a topic.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take APUSH! The class has a really nice, relaxed environment but is still very informative and will keep you engaged and prepared for the AP test. Make sure that you actually read out of the book and put effort into the few assignments you get, because they will benefit you in the future.
