    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Not only is Mrs. Hargrove a fantastic teacher, the course itself is very engaging for anyone with even a passing interest in history. If you can handle a fairly substantial daily workload and frequent examination, you'll find the class very rewarding.

    Course highlights:

    Class highlights include the teacher herself and the material. You learn a lot about writing timed essays, and hopefully get very good at it by the time the AP test rolls around. There is a lot of reading, but you will ideally begin to identify common themes throughout human history that can help you in answering questions where you do not perfectly recall the text.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Understand that there is a substantial daily workload, and that most students do not do incredibly well. If you are a solid English student, it is likely that you will do well here. When writing essays, be as brief as possible while still getting the points; study the rubrics she gives you to understand what needs to be written. A perfect-scoring essay can be written on a single page if you know what to write.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course with great appreciation and joy after taking it. I have a passion for history, and at my school, this course was the better option than regular history if you are one that likes a challenge. If you are one that reads, retains information well and overall does well in social study classes.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were just understanding the information. The AP test at the end of the year was a breeze due to how well I remembered the information and it was the combination of overall being organized and studying that got me a 5 on the exam. The exam that year was very Liberal and just what we all had prepared for and learned. It truly covered what had been discussed each day in class and was easy to prepare for. The class is transparent and with effort, one will learn, but also get a good grade.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would just do it if you feel like regular history is too easy. You will get bored in regular history. As a junior, it is important to take courses you are interested in. If history is for you, so is this class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is important to have knowledge in your country's history. Beginning all the way from the colonial era, you learn how our nation became shaped into what it is today.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about our nation's history and important people who contributed to shaping America. You learn about historic events in great detail and how they impacted the United States and the rest of the world. I learned all about our history and what contributed to making the country what it is today.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is important to keep up with the assignments in this course. Each night has an assignment that will help tremendously in knowing what is going on. You can't be lazy otherwise you will fall behind and have to do a lot more work than needed.
