    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    AP World History was the hardest class I've taken within my high school career. With every test, my anxiety skyrocketed, and my grade always teetered back and forth between 79% and 80%--and looking back on it, I can honestly say that it was one of the best experiences I've had in school. The class challenged me, and practically forced me to alter my studying habits to adhere to the demands of the class. It made me a better student by teaching my time management and developing my note-taking and analysis skills.

    Course highlights:

    The mongols are a highlight within any W.H.A.P. (World History, AP) Class--it's a joke commonly referred to in both Crash Course lessons, as well as within history. The Mongols practically took over the world. I

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read accordingly! Please don't skip over assigned readings--you'll come to regret it later. The chapters are long, and cramming isn't effective.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend it if you like to read. If you don't read the course will kill you, living off of the PowerPoint notes only takes you so far and doesn't help you on the test. Only take this course if you have good memory with reading because the book is huge, the words are tiny, and you have to remember all of this at the end of the year on the AP test. I did not pass this AP test because the reading put me to sleep, when I tried to read it and I would forget it the next day, remember this is the whole world we're studying. You'll write comparative essays, Data based question essays, and change over time essays, so make sure you're a good writer too, because they are timed sometimes, like 30 minutes to write it during class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned not to procrastinate, to pay attention and not be distracted, and I realized teachers don't just assign that much work to assign it, they assign that much work because it does help you when you take the test, so I should have been more engaged. It challenged me which is a highlight because you come to a realization everything isn't easy.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the book closely. Make sure you keep it all in your memory, and listen to your teacher. Don't sit by friends and be distracted because you don't have the time to play, touch up writing skills so you can be better and more able to write in a time period.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Anyone who wants to learn about the history of the world should take this class. Anyone who wants to become a better student and thrive in all other subjects should take this class. The heavy course load influences diligent thinking and creates hard-working students!

    Course highlights:

    I learned so much about the world that I use in correlation with other subjects such as English and other social studies classes.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Although it may get stressful, the year flies by, so under no circumstances take a break. Always make sure you are on top of the course-load and talk to Mrs.Clark, she is very understanding and helpful.
