    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I believe that Taff no longer teaches the subject but it is still a great class to take if you would like a comprehensive knowledge of history. Even if you don't go into any form of social studies, it is still nice to be able to make informed decisions on elected officials and daily situations based on the comprehensive knowledge of history that this class provides you with.

    Course highlights:

    From this class I learned how to give as much information as possible in as little time as possible, making sure to provide context. I also learned the different sides of history, as this class teaches the past from all available perspectives to provide a complex understanding of our nation's past.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to do all of the reading. Every class period will have a reading assignment and every reading assignment will have a reading quiz the next class so no matter how much you don't want to spend the hour or so reading the difficult text, it will only help you to be able to understand and do well on the reading quizzes.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    AP US History is one of the most foundational courses for high school students. Not only are important critical reading and thinking skills learned, but also the basic civic knowledge that all students should learn.

    Course highlights:

    Perhaps the greatest highlight of this class, other than the wonderful instruction by Mrs. Hargrove, is the comprehensive education that is taught regarding U.S. History. History of any country is not limited to just the good and as such this course is no different. Students are instructed on the past mistakes of the United States so that we may learn from them for the future.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course will require you to do a lot reading. I highly recommend taking this requirement seriously. Creating outlines based on the readings will also help with preparation for the both in class exams and the AP test as a whole.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher is super nice and supportive when you don't understand the material. Make sure you participate in class and take good notes. This will help to make the class more enjoyable and easier study-wise when it comes to the unit test or the big AP exam in May.

    Course highlights:

    This course made United States History make more sense since I was able to make the connections between European and American history and how they each affect each other. I learned how to write better and it gave me confidence that I could write anything in a short amount of time.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get a practice AP book early for the course and use it to review for the unit tests, finals, and the big exam in May. Take good notes during class and read the book. Make study guide to review for the test so that you can use them to remember each unit when you need to study for finals or the AP exam.
