    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. Hilbrecht is very nice and is willing to answer questions and help people improve as long as they are also putting in the effort to do so. Though some of the prompts and assignments can get lengthy or confusing, in most situations you are more than welcome to ask for clarification. She leaves plenty of notes and advice on graded essays to help you improve your writing, and really wants to see you grow.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of the course was reading The Crucible by Arthur Miller aloud as a class, learning more about the time period it was written in and was written about. Overall, during the course, we learned about different time periods in American history and how they were reflected in the writing of the era, how they influenced each other, and how they all coalesce into one big American Literature genre. We also wrote essays. Lots of essays, don't be surprised if you're writing one at least every two weeks. Though the essays are important, considering they help you improve in time for the AP.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to actually read the reading assignments, as she can tell when people use Sparknotes and crafts her tests so that Sparknotes won't mean a passing grade. As long as you don't sleep in class and don't disrupt, you'll stay on her good side. Take the notes she writes into your graded essays seriously, as they are meant to help you improve and not to degrade you. During reading assignments she can and will give pop quizzes, so try to stay caught up. The time periods of the reading doesn't necessarily align perfectly with the pace you'll be learning in AP US History, so be prepared to have to go back in your memory.
