    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The recent success of the musical Hamilton has highlighted America's need for identity. Your can learn all about Hamilton, Clay, McNamara, and other unsung heroes of America's culture. Lately, people are focused on the future, but it is by truly understanding what policies and decisions have made America what it is today that one can understand present political, social, and economic issues. The real downside to this course is that there are notes to do every night.

    Course highlights:

    Without giving too many spoilers, Mr.Voss is definitely a highlight to APUSH; you never quite know what story he's going to tell you to help you remember things. Everyone's highlight is different because different people are attracted to different periods of history. Personally, I greatly enjoyed the Revolutionary War and the WW2 era.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you have the opportunity to get ahead on notes, take it! As you are taking notes, make little notes to yourself of things you have a question on so you can ask them in class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I love this course becuase not only did it give you background on the country and how we progressed as an international and domestic power, but also all the mistakes we made along the way. By teaching students about our country's blunders we build up the next generation of politicians and government officials with knowledge on what decisions not to make and what to avoid.

    Course highlights:

    From this course I got to learn not just basic facts about the roaring 20's (not just flappers and good living!) and Americas roles in world wars, Vietnam, korea, and other communist countries. I loved learning about social changes like anti immigration patterns and laws and also the role of women thought history.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    After each unit, when you study for the unit test, don't just study that unit but also all the units before. This makes studying and memorizing much easier when it gets to the AP test and the final.
