    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I loved AP Euro because history has always been incredibly interesting to me and it has always been my dream to become a history teacher. Mrs. Kania is helping me along the way to fulfilling my dream and was such a supportive and witty teacher. I had never really taken a rigorous history course like AP Euro, only US history in 8th grade and World History Honors in 9th grade and it was so exciting to learn about an entire segment of history that I had almost no prior knowledge about. One fascinating aspect of AP Euro was how directly it applies to the modern world and the continent that Europe was shaped into today. For example, the formation of NATO and the EU both have direct routes in the dynamic of the European continent after World War II. Europe has an intriguing and remarkable past and it was such a wonderful experience to be able to learn about it from a truly inspiring teacher

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the AP Euro course are very difficult to pick because to me, almost all of it was fascinating to learn about. But the most important events I learned about within AP Euro were the main turning points in the history of the continent. First, the course begins with the Renaissance and Protestant Reformation, a complete revolution in medieval thought at the time. The Renaissance challenged the old ideals of scholasticism and towards the more secular and individual ideals of humanism, along with the return to classical Greek and Roman texts. The Protestant Reformation directly challenged the ancient authority of the Roman Catholic Church and set the stage for religious conflict on the continent for the next century. The next turning point comes with the end of religious wars in Europe, the 30 Years War, which not only ended Protestant Catholic conflict, but weakened the power of the long dominant Austrian Hapsburgs and set the stage for Frances rise to power under Louis XVI. The next turning point in thought and science in Europe was the Enlightenment and the Scientific Revolution. The Scientific Revolution changed the discipline of science from the ancient concept of "natural philosophy" into an empirical, precise study of the world around us and challenged many traditionally accepted beliefs. The Enlightenment was essentially the Scientific Revolution applied to politics. Philosophes like Baron de Montesquieu began to observe what methods of government they thought worked and applied that knowledge to different systems of government developed at the time. This set the stage for Europe's next turning point, the French Revolution which led to a backlash against all revolutionary principles on the continent after the defeat of Napoleon, until 1848. Another economic turning point rooted in the Enlightenment principles of a free market economy and the agricultural revolution was the first and second industrial revolution which transformed Europe from an agrarian society to complete urbanization and industrialization, with all of its challenges which have shaped Europe to this day. The unification of Germany and Italy, in 1860 and 1871, altered the power dynamics of the continent which ultimately contributed to World War I and II. Those two wars were also turning points as they gave rise to the Cold War, to which we still see the effects of today. All in all, I have not only memorized events and people, but I understand how each event is interwoven within each other and the importance of cause and effect within history.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    The most important thing to remember for success in AP Euro is to understand history through these three key facets, cause and effect, point of view and context. Each event in history has a cause, an effect, context and the point of view for the people present. To really understand each events significance, these three things must be understood. It was also helpful to categorize each event as political, economic, religious, social, intellectual, or artistic in order to comprehend the different implications for each

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    recommend this class because it is a very fun experience. You learn so much, but it is very fascinating. There is a lot of work, but if you space it properly, it goes by very quickly. Mrs. Kania is an amazing teacher, she makes the class very interactive and fun. She has several simulation type projects and activities that really help you learn.

    Course highlights:

    I really enjoyed learning about the French Revolution, it was my favorite unit. You learn so much about the struggles and triumphs of that great country. Mrs. Kania is also very passionate about that particular unit, and it reflects in her teaching. The way she explains everything really helps you retain the information.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you are organized. Set up a schedule for all of your classwork and stay on top of it. I speak from experience when I say that if you fall behind in homework it is very hard to get back up to speed.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because Ms.Atkins is an amazing teacher and I learned alot about the history of the world while in her class. I learned about the wars and also studied the different regions of the world.

    Course highlights:

    I really just remember memorizing the maps of the world. I remember knowing where all of the countries were and I could name where they were on a blank map. I would always pass the map tests and quizzes and I had an A in the class.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just remember to do the book work and read the chapters. The tests and quizzes are not difficult at all if you study just a little it every night so that you know the information.
