Always Do the Reading
Lots of Writing
This class was tough.
I highly recommend this course. Its rigor and informative quality will teach you a lot, both about the subject and yourself.
AP US History will give you a comprehensive context for America today. Rankins does a wonderful job of making every fact and anecdote you learn useful and relevant to the broader story of America. I'm a firm believer in the importance of learning history. It helps us to understand our present culture, economy, and political state, and APUSH is a great way to get that context and understanding. Also, Rankins tells good jokes.

Advice for students:
Please, do the readings, and make sure you're taking notes throughout the year. The closer you get the present in APUSH, the more complicated it tends to get, which is why it's so important you don't slack off (like I did!). Those last few months get really tough, but you never know what's going to be on the AP exam.
