    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is very challenging and seems overwheming at many points in the year but ultimately it caused my classmates and I to form a much closer bond and we stuck together through hard tests and grew as a class. Mr. Fitzpatrick makes the material incredibly interesting to learn and there is an excess of awesome information that makes learning fun! Mr. Fitzpatrick pushed us to challenge ourselves and we all improved and grew in a very positive direction.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were the review sessions at the end of he year before the AP test and learning about the roarin 20's. These two things were just so fun to learn and getting together with my class made it even better.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it!! But make sure you ready do study and pay attention to all of the lectures in class and don't look up the answers to your homework. Read the chapters and then fill in the packets with answers you find in the book.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Although it is a very fast paced and challenging course, it is very fun and exciting to discover the truth that is the history of the United States. Mr. Fitzpatrick prepared us very well for the test with his compassion and his humorous lectures. It is a class that is not for everyone, but for those people, it is very fun and insightful.

    Course highlights:

    You learn that the world has not been just peaches and cream. You learn all aspects from the civil rights movement to Reaganomics. Instead of just knowing an event by the name, you learn what it was, why it happened, and why it happened the way it happened. Although it is considered a survey course, it goes very in depth into all events throughout United States History.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need a strong determination and a strong work ethic. You cannot be slacking off at any point in this course because you will fall behind. Also, it will seem very daunting and overwhelming with all the material and information your teacher will throw at you but it will become much easier to manage all that once you get into a good grove.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    AMEX with Mr. Fitz was challenging as well as extremely informative. It is a lecture-based class which really gives you and idea what to expect in a college class. You definitely learn much more than you would i the college prep class and you develop a better sense of community with your fellow AMEX students. You aren't so much as treated like a child, but more as an a young adult.

    Course highlights:

    In this class you learn the course of American history beginning with the Bering land bridge that brought the very first people to North America all the way through to Reagan's presidency. You lean the ideology behind the making of the Declaration of Independence and what events lead to it's conception as well as the course of Puritan beliefs and the course of the Great Awakening. You really get a deep understanding of American history, from even before the beginning to present events.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read each chapter thoroughly and do your homework. It is the difference between an A or B on a test versus a C or D.
