    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would strongly recommend this course because the credibility of the teacher is very well and the pass rate of the IB Examination for this HL course is above 80 percent. The lectures have all the main points for each benchmark and the teacher really pushes everyone to know the material. He has the most unique style of teaching that will guarantee you passing the examination and the class.

    Course highlights:

    This course provides and promotes a disciplinary understanding of history of the Americas, the move to Global War, and the 20th century global wars. The nature of analyzing sources and critically examining the causes of wars has helped me understand how the leaders of multiple wars perform the actions that they did. For example, I was able to understand that due to Joseph Stalin's ulterior motives of communizing the entire region, his actions to suspend any threat towards his hopes of eventually dominating the world would have caused the Cold War. I learned,in this course, that Stalin managed to use US fears for a prolonged war against Japan to gain concessions in Asia in the wartime conferences. In addition, ideologies of leaders and the sphere of influences are studied in depth. President Truman, I learned, had ordered the development of the hydrogen bomb programme, scientists theorized that even more powerful then the atom bomb. The implications of the atom bomb was only one of the great inventions and ammunition we studied. In the beginning of the course, I learned of the bundle of compromises in the Constitution of the United States of America. The major benchmarks we learned in the first year of the Higher Level course is Independence Movements, Nation-building and challenges, United States Civil War: causes, courses and effects, the development of modern nations (1865-1929), emergence of the Americas in global affairs (1880-1929). In the second year, we learned the Mexican Revolution (1910-1940), the Great Depression and the Americas (1929-39), the Second World War and the Americas (1933-45), political developments in the Americas after the Second World War (1945-79), the Cold War and the Americas (1945-1981), and also the leading up to the 21st Century- from the 1980s to 2000.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    You must take notes, participate in the discussions in class, listen attentively to Mr. Bornacelli, and study on your own time. Studying the course material is the guaranteed way to pass the IB HL History course and it can get you college credit if you pass the IB Exam at the end of your two years in the IB program.
