    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's a hard class. I would not recommend this class if you're lazy

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was the people I worked with. The students wanted to help me. They wanted me to succeed. They always helped and I was always willing to help other. Team work was a big part of this course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    STUDY. You have to study not onlly for the course but for the AP test at the end of the year. You CAN NOT pass the AP test without studying.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Through this course, I learned more about the United States then I ever thought I would. The course was not focused on Columbus, but rather the many presidents and economic problems throughout time. My teacher specifically tied a lot of the issues from the past to the present like elections and wars, reiterating if we do not learn from the past we are doomed to repeat it.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were learning about the quirks of different presidents and figures in history like the story of "Teddy" Roosevelt. If you didn't know, President Theodore Roosevelt went on a bear hunting trip, but when faced with the opportunity to shoot the bear he saw the bear had a cub and refused to harm her. The "Teddy Bear" title came when a Brooklyn, NY candy shop owner, Morris Michtom, heard the story and made a stuffed bear in response, which he then put on display in his shop. He later asked for permission from President Roosevelt to call these toy bears "Teddy's bears".

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Look at the art from different time periods; people always create response pieces and art to different phenomenas or stress during time periods whether that be paintings, political cartoons, or ads in magazines. For this course, also begin thinking thematically in regions of the United States. For this course, there are a lot of laws to remember like Plessy v.s Ferguson! The best advice for success is remember your laws, presidents, and wars. I also recommend listening to Hamilton because a lot of information is covered in the soundtrack.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Jones delivers history in a way I've never experienced before. He makes it so interesting you don't even realize you're learning it. I understand things and know more than I ever have about the United States, and it has also been incredibly useful in understanding the current condition of the world and politics.

    Course highlights:

    I really enjoyed learning about the different cultural trends and movements during the decades of US history. The way Mr. Jones talked about them, showed examples, and told stories made them come to life in our minds.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need attention to detail. Since this course zooms in on such a small amount of time in such a specific area, there is more detail you must know. It is also important to understand the timeline and be familiar with periods of time and what happened in them. It is only necessary to memorize a few specific dates.
