    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is a fantastic opportunity not only to advance your knowledge in American history, but also to understand all sides of it. This class teaches even the dark sides of our history as Americans and is very insightful. This class can teach students the issues Americans have faced before and learn from their mistakes. This class definitely isn't for the unmotivated and lazy because it takes a lot of time and effort, however the end goal is definitely worth the time and effort.

    Course highlights:

    Although every part of American history is interesting, the most memorable parts of this class include learning about the struggles of the original Americans, the revolutionary war, the causes and effects of the civil war, how the population bounced back during reconstruction, the civil rights movement and the fight they had to endure to ensure their rights, and even learning about the stock market crash in 2004.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    The last thing you want to skip out on are notes. Notes during class or notes taken after school from the book will keep you on top of everything you need to know about a certain chapter. Also, because this class takes up a lot of time and effort, organization can make or break you. Don't throw any work away because you never know when you could use it compare or contrast to a later event, and it's also important for reviews when it's time to take the exam.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course primarily based off of the fact that learning how our country started and how it continues to grow is extremely vital and significant in order for America to further grow and prosper! AP teaching style is beyond helpful. AP teachers who mimic teaching styles of professors helps each student in outrageous amounts because they are now prepared for what is to come. On top of all that, if you pass the AP test you get the AP GPA bump, as well as college credit!

    Course highlights:

    I could say that I gained a lot from this course. Thankful it was knowledge and not weight, let me tell you that! As mentioned previously, the teaching style mimicking a professors, encouraged and forced students how to take proper notes. Not only did this new behavior help me pass the test, but it helped me with future courses. Now that is just the beginning! We learned all the insights of our country that helped promote a better understanding and grow fonder and fonder of my heritage. Knowing all of the good AND bad stuff about America didn't hinder my love for my country but inflamed it even more! Organizations or countries that can experience hard times but overcome and benefit from it, are the true heroes of the world!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed you must create your own personal study system. An amazing method I have is read the book and annotate your own thorough notes before your teacher goes over it in class. Most teachers will only lecture the high points of a chapter, if you don't do independent study time and read the book you will fail the test. Another beneficial tip is re-read the section the night that your teacher goes over it in class. Take about 20-30 minutes per night to make sure you understand the material, and generate any questions for your teacher to either enhance your knowledge or overall understanding. Another HUGE benefactor in passing this class is be present! Showing up to class is the easiest way to stay ahead and pass. If you aren't in class not only have you missed interesting discussion but vital lecture that will most likely encore on to your next test. Also, make yourself known! Many teachers know who is taking the extra step to dive deeper into the study content to fully learn the material. Some teachers give talking points, and if you don't speak during class you get a zero on that grade which can easily become the easiest assignments you will ever have! Ask questions, make comments, and get involved in your class discussions!
