    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course because I think it gave me a better perspective on the world in general. By seeing the successes and failures of the U.S. you learn discernment and why certain decisions played out the way they did. Besides the life lessons, Honors U.S. History is absolutely fascinating to me and I love to hear the great stories of those that came before me.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course for me were the 2016 Presidential Election project and studying the different culture movements. An exciting part of the year in Honors U.S. History was that it fell on the same year of the presidential election so ,of course, we got to study it! This gave me a really good feel on what the presidential election looks like and how our system of democracy works. Doing this project got me really excited and involved with the election. The culture movements were also very exciting to learn about, especially because in the unit we did we got the opportunity to examine the different music styles of the past. The music was fun to study and we got to figure out the different ideas that the lyrics stood for.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice for this class would be that if you give the class a chance to spark your interest and it will. If you do this it will likely become your favorite class. And with all the interesting historical figures, presidents, and stories about the United States you won't mind studying after a while. Studying for History is like reading an exciting news story although you'll be glad that a lot of the mistakes that America made are in the past. If you really participate in the class and listen to what Mrs. Johnson has to say about our History you will find that the material is actually very interesting and that the lessons and common knowledge from History can apply to your real life. A big part of taking interest in the class is spending at least 30 minutes a night going over material and ,obviously, finishing all of the assignments that are given because they are given for a reason. I would tell anyone considering this course that if you put in a little bit of time to this course outside of school and all of your attention in school, this could be one of your favorite classes yet.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is a great course that binds the previous European history you take and the current US history you know. I also adds two points to each of your semester averages.

    Course highlights:

    You learn about the initial pilgrims that moved to America to escape persecution and go from the 1700's to the 1850's and a bit of the Civil War.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would definitely take this course. You will learn so much about our country's history and it really is an eye-opener to how current events occurred.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is a required course at this high school, so you do need to take it to graduate. However, it is a great course and you will learn so much about US History. The honors class also gives you two extra points on your semester average, which can make a letter grade difference.

    Course highlights:

    What you will learn is dependent on who is your teacher and what grade you take as Honors. If it is in 10th grade, you will learn early US History from the foundation to around the Civil War. The 11th grade class picks up the Civil War to present. You will learn European History from before the Renaissance to about the migration of people from Great Britain to the United States during your freshman history class.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would definitely expect more writing and project work in this course going in than you have ever had in a history class. My teacher particularly would divide the work by the decades and we would have a test and an in-class essay during the test between each decade.
