    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is challenging, especially if taken as a freshman. It's hard to adjust to high school in the first place, and adding college-level rigor to a class on top of that can be stressful. However, I believe the work put into this class is worth the end-of-year product. Because of this, I would recommend it to a student who is willing to work hard and accept and grow from failure.

    Course highlights:

    Although I did build up a strong foundation for the understanding of world history in this class, that was not the highlight for me. I found the experience with a rigorous course to be extremely valuable. After taking this course as a freshman, every other AP class seemed relatively easy. Besides teaching me about world history, this course taught me what it's like to actually work hard for a deeper understanding of a subject.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I got through the year by reviewing with my best friend every other day. We would talk out the concepts to get a deeper understanding of what it would be like to actually live in the time period we were studying. The most important thing is to not give up on this class because if you cane pass it, especially freshman year, you can pass pretty much anything.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it only if you know that you are a dedicated student who can handle an EXTREMELY intense workload. If you aren't completely sure how you are going to do just be prepared because it is one of the harder AP courses. But Mrs. Summerford is an absolute amazing teacher and will always make sure that you are doing well in the class.

    Course highlights:

    The notes, I loved how the notes were so thorough. It really helped with making flashcards and study guides for tests and quizzes

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Even if you have a study guide, thoroughly reading the chapter is definitely necessary and taking notes of each section is good too.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was a great experience for me. It gave me a very good foundation for my future studies in cultural anthropology. History in general is fascinating and well worth learning in order to better one's understanding of the world.

    Course highlights:

    The causes and effects of major and minor events throughout the past. Major changes, tragedies, and improvements resulted from tiny sources. I learned to view events, not only historical, on a broader scope. Connections appear that would have previously appeared irrelevant. Not only did I gain factual knowledge, but analytical skills to improve my learning capacity.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the chapters thoroughly and carefully. Also, look at the bigger picture instead of sections, many events occur at the same time, watch how they relate to each other.
