    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class itself isn't bad, you just have do the assigned reading and pay attention in class.

    Course highlights:

    I personally fell asleep in class often, as it was first thing in the morning and i was still a zombie during those hours. When I was awake and very much alive though, highlights tended to be few and far from each other. On a positive side though, there were more than enough group assignments, so you always got to interact with others, and plenty of videos to aid the learning.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be sure to pay attention in class and take notes. I can't stress that enough.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    United States History is one of the most important and relevant subjects that a student can learn! We are living through US History daily. There is nothing that goes on in our country that isn't directly affected by something that occurred in the past. Being educated and knowledgeable on history is the only way to be informed and make a change.

    Course highlights:

    Even though the course is about general American History, I learned so much about political history and evolution. All of this info comes into play again when you take American Government, so this is important information to know. I also gained so much knowledge about civil rights and other rights movements such as the sexual revolution (Roe v Wade particularly) and the women's suffrage.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Learn your vocab, and try to relate it to things you already know in real life. Understanding your vocab and being able to actually apply it to real life is a key part of passing the exam. You can save a lot of time on multiple choice by knowing key vocab words and you'll also score extra points on your essays by being able to use your vocab as evidence!

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course gives you a broad understanding of American history. It's important to know the happenings of our country, and this class does it in a very thorough way.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed learning about the Reformation era during the mid 1800s. This era sparked the beginning of social change in America. I also liked learning about the 1960s because it was a prominent year for politics, civil rights, and culture

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the reading. Watch John Green. Figure out mnemonic devices to help yourself remember information. Before the exam in May, make a timeline of American history to understand the order of events.
