    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Ms. Nelson is an eccentric teacher who is dedicated to having her students enjoy learning. She makes the material relatable to our age group and uses multiple learning outlets. My favorite subject is science, but after her class I cultivated an immense love, respect, and appreciation for the course. In all, just be willing and ready to learn with an open mind and the material will stick!

    Course highlights:

    The class discussions were hilarious and intriguing. We did not strictly learn about U.S. history, but we also learned about real life issues. I enjoyed truly understanding how the past impacts the present and seeing that history really does repeat itself. I learned how to be a good test taker and how to dissect information.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Since it is a history course, having reliable notes is an absolute must. Make your notes appealing so that when you have to go back to study them, you are not overwhelmed by the material. I suggest using different colored pens (ex: red be for wars, green be for land, orange being for years, etc.) and spacing your notes out so make the information easier to look at. You MUST read your textbook; class notes are helpful, but the textbook holds the bulk of what you will need for the AP exam.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this court because you learn a lot about your country. Look at the past and compare it to present times. You can see changes in time and it is amazing to see why our country is the way it is based on our history. The first part may seem boring, but when you get to the 1920s and there is an up brining of invention you see the change in families and society. You learn how to critically think and how to put things into perspective of the time period it was.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course it is around the 1920s. This is the time of invention and a difference between the haves and have nots. When you get to the 1950s "The Happy Days" there is an up bringing of new technologies like televisions. Mc Donald's and Disneyland are built. Then the next decade, 1960s there is an up riot of many minority groups. It starts off with African Americans protesting for equal rights and soon group tag along (women, Native Americans, and LGBT).

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise you to read the textbook and make sure that you are consistent with the reading. Make sure that you study three days prior to the tests. The APUSH ap booklets are really helpful so it would be a good decision to use that as a study guide.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class for anyone that wants to challenge themselves mentally to levels that they thought were unreachable. It will allow students to understand that everything won't be easy in life, as this course requires you to really take the time to understand the material or you will be left out on the rest of the material to come.

    Course highlights:

    This class teaches time management and organization. It also requires you to create study habits that can be transferred throughout all of your classes. This course will be something that you will probably hate and second guess yourself on why you decided to take it, but after adjusting to the circumstances and situations that the class offers, you'll begin to appreciate it more and more.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In taking this course, you will need a positive state of mind, a strong will to finish, and confidence within yourself. If you can acquire these traits, then you will be set to go because this course is just a test of how much work and time you're willing to put into the material. It will also require exquisite study habits and time management in order to juggle the rigor of this class along with your other courses.
