    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because I think it is an important class for students who want to learn about the world in a unique way.

    Course highlights:

    Some major highlights of Human Geography were how people move and why they move, along with the affects of it. I learned about humans and their interaction with the world in a way that was so new and interesting to me. I learned everything from populations to migration and emigration of people to why they do it to how cities work. It was also great for my major, political science.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't think it is going to be about just about people moving around the globe. It is so much more than that if you let it be. Learning about the reasons for movement is so important to today. If you are interested in politics, it is a great class for that!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Everyone needs a basic understanding or their country's history, but this course takes that understanding and converts it into solidified knowledge. The specifics involving the important people and events of our history that aren't covered in other classes, are rather interesting. This makes for a fun course that makes you want to learn.

    Course highlights:

    I learned many things about American history, dating all the way back to the Native American times. One thing that I will never forget is how extraordinary of a man George Washington was. Many people think of him as just the first president of the United States, but little do they know how much he alone impacted the future of the country.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    There are three main things you need to do in order to be successful in this course: take you notes, read your book, and do all of your homework to the best of your ability. The reason for this is for preparation for the AP exam. You will look through your previous notes and homework assignments for reference when studying, so make sure to do them efficiently.
