    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is filled with unlimited knowledge on world wide history. We mainly focused on American history, but I learned a lot about the world while taking this class

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this class was having such an interactive teacher with different and fun assignment.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not be afraid to participate in the daily note taking and primary source work

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The class is incredibly interesting, and a lot of this has to do with the subject matter itself, but I also think that a lot of it has to do with the effort put forth by the teacher, Mrs. Williams. She makes sure that the class is less based on dry lectures than it is on the application of concepts, often in the form of group projects (there are a ton of those) or fun class activities. This helps consolidate what we are learning and make it more appealing to learn. For example, in learning different parts of the brain, Mrs. Williams asked us to complete a group project in which we were to create superheroes with certain parts of the brain receiving powers. I had a great time collaborating on this with my friends, and I also feel that I remember the subject matter well. In learning about Jean Piaget's stages of development, students were asked to work in groups to make toys that correspond with each stage of development. We spent a whole day in class playing with each other's toys; it was so fun!

    Course highlights:

    1. I love how open Mrs. Williams is to answering students' questions. During lectures, she always leaves enough time for students to ask questions as we go along. My class asks a lot of questions, so I always left class feeling that I had a more insightful understanding of the subject matter. For example, as the class was learning about the different parts of the brain, students asked about people they knew who had gotten brain injuries and what part of the brain might have been affected based on the behavior after the accident. These questions are a constant reminder that psychology is forever applicable to life. I know that I have learned something well when I can apply a psychological phenomenon to the events going on around me. 2. I also really enjoyed Mrs. Williams' "Family Days" in preparation for the AP test. She called them "Family Days" because she wanted to lighten the mood, and she truly did succeed in making the AP Test a less daunting task. Here's a breakdown of how a Family Day would run. I threw some buffer time with the practice test portion, because it often takes a few minutes to get up and running, but Mrs. Williams gives students just as much time as they would on the AP test, no more, no less. A student is asked to go to three of these family days before the actual AP test rolls around. 3 pm to 8 pm on a weekday (Sounds a little crazy, but the time goes fast. Mrs. Williams also gives students plenty of options on which days would be most convenient to them). 3 pm- 4:30 pm Practice AP Multiple Choice 4:30-5:30 Practice AP FRQs 5:30-6:00 Eat dinner (Mrs. Williams buys food for us!), relax, chat with friends 6:00-6:30 Go over FRQ 6:30 to 8:00 Go over multiple choice, with Mrs. Williams explaining every single question all of the way through. Calculate score for practice AP Test. I have never, ever felt more prepared for an AP test.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Mrs. Williams does give a ton of group projects, but don't think for a second that it is busy work. It all has helped me understand psychology better. Please do all of the projects, and pull your own weight in a group! Also, read from the textbook before the test rolls around. You aren't going to be reminded to do the reading that far ahead of time, but that's just the nature of an AP class. You will learn why cramming doesn't work, based on psychology, so don't cram!
