    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it really does go in depth teacher you about war history in America. It explains and organizes events well enough to help you understand our history.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course was learning about the Cold War

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the textbook and write notes is what I would say to students going into the class. They truly help when going into the test because all the information they're asking for is in that textbook.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is enjoyable because of an in-depth analysis on historical events from a global, generally objective perspective instead of focus on United States involvement. The IB curriculum provides for worldwide context and understanding of the implications of politics, economic fluctuations, and human rights movements.

    Course highlights:

    I gained perspective on several events I learned the US version of, such as the World Wars and our independence movement. The textbook and essay questions force the student to analyze, consider an angle, and support it rather than memorizing facts and dates. The teacher is also extremely intelligent and knowledgable about the course, giving the classroom a relaxed, yet thoughtful environment. He frequently takes current affairs and incorporates it into our studies to better understand history and its implications and patterns.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    A lot of independent work is necessary to survive the class. Read the textbook, but don't just jot down paragraphs. Create outlines for the themes of historical events, such as the impact of technological development in World War I, to comprehend the significance of them. Do all work given to you and do it thoroughly to slowly gain a stream of study guides throughout the year.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a great course. We learn so much about how different areas were involved in different parts of different wars. We also learn about the outcomes of the actions from multiple countries and how those actions can change the path of a war.

    Course highlights:

    We did a lot of independent work. We didn't do any busy work. All the work that we did was useful and resourceful. We got information from multiple different sources and perspectives. We also do socratic seminars before the writting to make sure we have a clear understanding of the topics. Doing the socratic seminars we can see other peoples perspectives and learn new information.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you don't procrastinate. Take good notes. Theses notes will be very useful when studying for the writting and before the IB test.
