    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Since this is a freshman course, it is a great class for new high school students to see how other AP classes will work. It shows them that the class work may be challenging, as well as there will be a lot of notes/ homework. Though there are these things, if they take the class, it will show the freshman that they are indeed capable of working in an AP style classroom.

    Course highlights:

    Without a doubt, the highlight of this class was taking the AP test at the end of the year, and scoring a 3 or higher. Since the class was challenging as a freshman, being rewarded with college credit truly did pay off my efforts. Even if a student does not end up receiving credit, being within the class is enough to help realize the experience of tough classes.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Completing the homework every night may seeming annoying at times, but in the end it truly does help when you go to take the AP exam in May. Studying is also necessary to guarantee the best grade possible. Yes you can get through the class without studying, but if you want college credit, it is in your best interest to study whenever you have time.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    AP Human Geography is a course that I would highly recommend due to the challenge and understanding of success. The class involves fun topics that can open your eyes to the world around you. Insight gained from the course will allow you to enjoy learning more about humans and their interaction with the world which can directly correlate to current events that you see everyday.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course is the realization of why humans interact the way they do. In other history or social studies classes, you learn what people do and when; in AP Human Geography, you learn WHY people do what they do. Why people interact differently on different parts of the world, why cities are they way they are, why countries develop and how they develop, and many more. From this glass, I was able to gain knowledge on many topics of human interaction, culture, and nations of people. This course also expanded my geographical knowledge by a high measure.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You have to be prepared and motivated to take this course. The challenges that come from learning the material have to be applied to a higher understanding. So, to do that, a student should come into this course ready to learn and make connections to real examples of the context. Especially studying the material, to pass you have to try hard and focus when when you fail. What seemed to really help is to practice over and over: answer more questions, write more definitions down, understand the material more, and actively seek more guidance to review the material.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a good gateway into the AP community. It offers a challenge for freshman and builds their vocab. But yet it is not too difficult where they cant handle it.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the word and he backbone of many countries. Geography that I learned from the class helped in the following AP classes.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    That you really have to pay attention in class and do your work. Preparing is the best way for success. Especially since everything in the year comes back.
