    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would most definitely recommend this course. It's incredibly important to know history because without it, you would be more susceptible to make the same mistakes. Ever since taking that class, I have noticed patterns that are continuing in today's society, I can guarantee someone need a brush up on some history!

    Course highlights:

    I loved the "red dot" game, it was a game to teach us about the rising fear of communism during the 1950s and the object of the game was to get into groups and have no red dots in the group, (the red dots were the communists) and you had to call accuse for having a red dot, although you had no idea who had the red dots. I learned a tremendous amount about the industrial revolution and my class debated if "the men who created America" were heroes or robber barons. I also didn't know that "The Wizard of Oz" is actually a book symbolic to the populist movement and to the election between William Mckinnley and William Jennings Bryan.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    READ, READ, READ! Somtimes a reading will sneak on you ESPECIALLY if no one has read the chapter. It's important that you know what is going to be taught that day so you can have a better understanding. There are many debates in this class, some get heated, but the debates require you to think and you also learn more about your beliefs and boundaries.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Not only is Mr. Robertson an incredibly passionate and engaging teacher, but US History is interesting in so many ways. The American past can help shape what the future could look like or how it could be changed. In this class I learned that history doesn't necessarily repeat itself, but continues with many of the same patterns throughout the course of the future.

    Course highlights:

    This course really illuminated problems in society that I never really noticed before and how these issues occurred many years ago and are still continuing. US History requires you to question your beliefs on politics, religion, and where you stand on many other questionable ideologies. Overall this course really shaped how I now think and view what is currently happening in America and how that affects me now and generations to come.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course really requires you to be open minded to different cultures and ideas of others. In the class we had several debates and it was really interesting to hear the thoughts and opinions of my peers. It is imperative to read each chapter because there are many pop quizzes and that will ultimately prompt you in understanding what's being taught.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It was a very interesting course and I learned a lot about things I wouldn't normally learn about on my own time.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about the presidents, which I especially liked because I haven't gotten the opportunity to learn about them extensively in the past

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure it interests you or else you won't want to put forth the effort!
