    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!

    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.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    History has always been one of the most interesting subjects for me. I learn how to deal with contemporary issues by looking at the past to see similar circumstances. Just know, those that don't know their history are doomed to repeat it! So let's learn it now!

    Course highlights:

    American history is often embellished in the movies or by word of mouth, so to see everything objectively and construct one's own opinion is the first step to becoming a well informed citizen and conscious voter. I remember learning about what actually happened in America, and seeing current patterns that reflect the ones in our history! It's amazing to be able to talk about it with others and refrence our own past when debating politics. It's also great for trivia!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just be sure to keep up with the work load. You don't have to read every chapter, but make sure you're on sparknotes or crash course if you're skimming. If you have a great interest in history already, then this won't be hard for you.
