    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this class because I provides a good experience into what a college class would be like. Although it is a lot of work, you learn from the work and how to write better.

    Course highlights:

    In this class, I learned about history all around the world from the start of history until present times.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to make sure that you do the work and turn it in even though it is a lot.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I personally recommend Mr. Holcomb's class if you enjoy challenging your academic capabilities, holding intellectual discussions, and analyzing the history of our world in-depth. This course ties theory in with reality, exploring the where, when, and why of civilization and it's advancement. Mr. Holcomb makes history come alive with interactive classroom activities, lectures, and the occasional joke, all to emphasize the curriculum down to the last detail. He teaches that every student can (and will) succeed of their own accord, and all he really needs to do is get them started down the right path.

    Course highlights:

    From this course, I have garnered a deeper, more meaningful understanding of world history as a whole. I have experienced a teacher who is dedicated, driven, and exciting. This course offers an introspective view that spans throughout our time, as humans, on this planet. I will always remember his rigorous lectures, the challenging essays, and the discussions we held, as a motive that has propelled my academic career skyward.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Complete the homework and the notes on time, and scrutinize every chapter down to the most minute detail. Always pay careful attention to every assignment, or you could miss something crucial.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class provides overview of history and allows students to understand what happened around the world through different years. Of course that's what the course title implies, but what you didn't know is that understanding the past allows for more in depth discussions with peers. Real world discussions may require knowledge of past events and this course really allows for this understanding to be met.

    Course highlights:

    From taking this course I was able to apply the knowledge to other classes and hold a conversation with someone older than I. Another enjoyable aspect of this course was making more intelligent jokes or comprehending something said and relating it back to the topics studied such as early Chinese dynasties, SPICE (social, political, intellectual, cultural, economics), religion and so on.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep on top of your work. Any assignments given, don't take lightly and don't procrastinate. This was advice I was given, and now I pass on to other students. Take the time to study and pay attention in class. This may be difficult but it truly pays off to get college credit and pass the class.
