    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Knowing your country's history is incredibly important in being an effective and active citizen. It puts the present in context in a way a vague knowledge of the Civil War from 5th grade social studies just doesn't do. And knowing where our founders and the men and women that followed them were coming from allows us to make educated, positive choices in the present.

    Course highlights:

    The biggest thing I think I took away from APUSH is that there are so many people that were absolutely crucial in the building of America today (both the good and the bad), that we've largely forgotten in our culture as a whole. AP US History was the first place I remember hearing the name Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and yet she was so incredibly influential in the passing of the 19th amendment. I know about people and events that shaped America today that you would never hear about in normal conversation, and it makes me a better, more informed person today.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Sometimes the class can feel like a crash course, especially as you're getting closer to the exam. And the AP exam itself can feel like a big looming thing, but there a few key points you can remember that will almost always put you in the best position. The first is that history repeats itself. It's an old cliché, but it's important. Themes travel through time, and so knowing the background to an issue will largely help you remember the outcome. The second is that the reason an event took place matters a whole lot more than the little details of that event. So while casualties of individual battles and the names of everyone present at a summit may be helpful, they aren't crucial (essentially what I'm trying to say is don't sweat the small stuff, the big picture is so much more important). And the third is this: Mrs. Hejl always said "Before 1852, when in doubt, the answer is Henry Clay." The dude lives for ages, and he had a finger in every pie. So when in doubt, go with Henry Clay.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is for students who really enjoy learning about history. I believe, at Fishers High School, this class or another form of it are required. However, if you are not interested in going into great detail about history, I would suggest you take the lesser version of this class.

    Course highlights:

    I came out of this class feeling more informed about the world around me. There were also a few projects that were fun to do.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study! This class is going to be a lot of work, so get ready.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    For those of us that are born in the United States, I believe it is a necessary course to thoroughly learn about the history of our nation. We should be aware of the struggles of our ancestors to raise a nation that has become the leader of the world. We should be thankful for those in our history for giving us everything we have today.

    Course highlights:

    AP US History (APUSH) has been a course that goes highly in-depth into the history of the United States, from the history of the Native Americans that first resided here up until modern day. We learned every aspect of our nations history: The true brutality faced by the Native Americans, the birth of the nation, the Founding Fathers, the struggles of African Americans through the decades, and finally the different aspects of our nation today that allowed it to rise to the top of the world.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The class is difficult, there is no way to sugarcoat that. However, if one puts in the time, then results will pave way and the entire learning process should be much easier.
