    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend AP U.S History because it's a good course that dives deeper in to the history of America and if you love History you'll love this course. The things we have learned since elementary school, now we get to learn a different side to it.

    Course highlights:

    I learned everything from the Native American time period to Modern day. I would say my favorite part was learning about the major Wars and the presidential election of each era.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this class, I would put the time and effort and don't slack off. Being an AP class there is required reading and I would recommend that you do it because it will help you when it comes time for tests and quizzes. Take good notes and study hard.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I learned so much about the U.S. and why the way it runs today. Learning our history is imperative to making improvments in the future.

    Course highlights:

    Learning about social issues, especially the Civil Right Movemnent and the first waves of feminism.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    STUDY. Buy a crash course study book and use it religiously. Always read the textbook before reading quizzes, they're generally easy if you actually read. Also,remember that memorizing dates is not necessarily as important as knowing where event lie in proximity to each other.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    APUSH is reading and recognition/application of facts. The course explains historical events and patterns in reasoned, cause-and-effect timelines. Yes, there is some degree of "memorization" involved, but it is not rote, and it is not useless. If you've taken AP World, there is no reason to be scared off by APUSH.

    Course highlights:

    If you live in the United States, it's nice to know some of the country's history. I won't lie: some of the things you learn in APUSH are trivia facts, nice things to know if someone puts a gun to your head and demands to know what the Root-Takahira Agreement was. But most of the course is about learning patterns that shaped the country's past, major events that are still referenced and significant today, the process of change that brought the United States to its present. It's good to know.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Eh reading shall cover the multitude of sins. It's also nice to make a timeline of your own- for each period/unit, take key facts and events and put them in rough chronological order on a neatly organized semi-timeline-thingy. The visualization helps with sequential thinking and memory.
