    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to anyone who enjoys or wants to learn more in depth about contemporary history. Personally, I hate history and I never really understood many concepts but with Mr. De Armas my opinion has defintely changed. He finds a way to make the class easy for everyone to understand and keep up while still having fun. If you're looking for something to SL out of junior year or an alternative to APUSH, this class is for you.

    Course highlights:

    I gained appreciation for learning and really understanding history. For once, I was able to tie everything together and it all made sense. This wasn't the typical boring structured class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed it's important to really pay attention in class. The class does involve powerpoint presentations but they're more of the general ideas. It's important to interact and stay involved with the class discussions and pay attention to the videos. The class may be a bit fast-paced for some considering there's so much to cover so make sure you manage your time well!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    To know a man you must know its background, the same applies for cultures and countries. Contemporary history is the history most applicable to our current lives in terms of providing a deep background of knowledge between the relationships people and countries hold with one another. To know your history is to have greater control of one's fate.

    Course highlights:

    It was very relaxing while at the same time being eye opening. Never before had I known of the Chinese Civil war or the history of the east. To not only see the casualties that far exceed that of the World War, but images of the events (including the atrocities ), will help immensely as I travel the world. The teacher rewards participation and is highly active and up to date in the workings of the world, updating us on how current events relate to the lessons being taught.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The easiest way to approach the course is with interest yet it is not required, only ones attention. Study the PowerPoint presentations and key terms, the tests should be a breeze afterwards. There is a constant update of grades so never get discouraged if you don't do well on one topic, history's difficulty varies wildly. Most of all, look at the world around you, application of knowledge is the best form of practice after all.

    Fascinating class. Remarkable teacher that will guide you and help you every step of the way, he keeps the class interesting and is not only a wonderful teacher but a great person too.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    stay focused, don't miss test days, try your best
