    | Would highly recommend.

    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.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because this course is honestly not too difficult, but it is also interesting. The assignments in this class were not too difficult, but there was a lot of analyzing of old literary pieces written by authors during different time periods who had opposing literary stances, such as the Whigs' party.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was the reading since it was not very challenging. Also, I learned about many amendments during this course.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    During this course, it is extremely important to read the chapters assigned when they are assigned. Procrastinating in this course is very detrimental. As long as students read the chapters, they will most likely be set.
