    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is required if you plan to pursue the IB Diploma. The course itself is not all that hard. It is easier than WHAP. The information is more specific and the readings are shorter. The biggest challenge of the class is the National History Day project, though if you can stay with the deadlines, its manageable.

    Course highlights:

    In this course, you learn United States history. It is very thorough in describing the social and political atmospheres of the various time periods. The textbook is fairly neutral and very informative.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you did well in WHAP, then you have nothing to worry about. If you did not take WHAP, be prepared to read most every night and to read a lot. Take notes. Even if you don't use them for studying, writing the information down will make recalling the information in the reading much easier.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a thrilling course that really goes into depth on all of the events that have taken place in the US. You will learn a lot about why things are the way they are today; ever wanted to know why our congress works the way it does? How about why we have the number of states we do today? You learn about this and a lot more if you take this course.

    Course highlights:

    Very strong base as to how the US functions today and how it works the way it does today because of our past leaders. You will learn about key pieces or very important pieces of law that were enacted so that you don't have to worry about finding wood splinters our sewage in your canned food (seriously, that was a real things before activists such as Upton Sinclair wrote The Jungle to open peoples eyes as to the atrocities that were occurring during the gilded age). Most importantly you will become a better educated member of society that is better able to make decisions that will aid his fellow countrymen because you will know about laws that have and have not worked in the past.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you are staying caught up on the homework you are being assigned and make sure you are getting help from the teacher whenever needed (you'll need it). Pay attention in class and take notes and make sure you are studying before the tests and try to put everything you learn into a big picture or timeline so that even the little individual events fit into overarching eras and time periods. This way you can relate and understand the motives for certain peoples' decisions and actions.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course to those whose career goal is history related! This course opened my eyes to American history and what all this country has come through. The most valuable aspect of this course is learning how the past has shaped our present, in the largest and smallest ways.

    Course highlights:

    Because history was not an exciting subject for myself, I did not come into the course with the most open of minds, but throughout the year I learned so much that I was automatically intrigued! History is so valuable and critical to understanding certain issues in today's society. I have learned this with the help of an amazing teacher, Mr. Wheeler, and such and enthusiastic class.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    When taking this course do not fall behind. Always do your homework and review your notes on a regular basis and then some. I encourage everyone to take this course because of how much their mindset will expand afterwards. Take this course if history is a passion and if history is not a passion, I still recommend this course.
