Background Knowledge Expected
Requires Lots of Research
This class was tough.
This is a rigorous course! You have absolutely no time to slack in this AP Class. He will treat you as if you are a real college student, because in his eyes, you are. The work given will challenge you and you must turn it in on time if not you will recieve a grade of zero. Although, he assigns 38 essays the minimum of 6 sentences for 5 paragraphs, that should be typed and pre written for the very next day. When you look back it will only make college life easier for you because by then, a 7 page paper that's due in a week will be so easy for you to type because you already have the necessary skills and work ethics to prepare you. Yes, he gives a lot of work, but trust, when it's all over, you'll be back to thank him just like how every student he had ever taught does.
In this course, we learned all about history and at some points we revisited World History. We learned why Georgia grew slowly, which is because, they had an unhealthy climate, several of Spanish attacks, early restrictions on black slavery and initial lack of plantations. We learned the learned the colonist American way of life which is individual liberty, economic opportunity, religious freedom and self government. We researched the territory that was once New Sweden became part of New Jersey, Delaware and Pennsylvania. Everything in this course, you literally had to do and research on your own. For instance, he gave us a packet, some answers were true or false. If the answer was false we had to state why it was false and of the Answer was true we had to give background knowledge on why it was true and where we got the information from. There's a lot more I can say and discuss but all this work helped me passed the Georgia Milestones Test being a Distinguished Learner which is level 4 the highest level.
