    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is great. Not only is Mrs. Barber great, but how she teaches is so thorough. You won't get this in depth in a history course anywhere else.

    Course highlights:

    I loved learning about the Pre-Civil War America, and we were shown many perspectives not previously covered which made my experience more well rounded.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    READ THE BOOK!!! It's the most important advice to follow. For the love of God, READ THE BOOK.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    History is extremely important. I believe that everyone should be aware of what has happened in the past so we can be more mindful of the future. Mrs. Fillion does a very good job of incorporating current events and things that are interesting and valid today in order to allow students to draw connections to the reading. It makes the class a lot more fun to be in.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course are definitely the group presentations. I love collaborating with people and I also love the fact that we get to teach some of the material to each other, because the best way to learn is to teach. I learned a great deal about the mindsets of the time and platforms that people stood behind and why they identified with them.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are considering taking this course, make sure you are prepared to do a lot of reading. There are tons of great resources online, and I like to use them. Some people are visual learners and like to watch videos, some people look up study guides and power points to learn in bullet point format, and all of those are great extra resources. However, the basis of all of the work you are doing is your textbook. It is not something that you can skim through in ten minutes and retain. You absolutely have to sit down and read it. There is no way around it, but there are some ways to make it better. I would recommend picking a genre of music that you really like (it can be anything--pop, show tunes, rap, etc) and choosing one song for each chapter that you read. Go on youtube and find a piano instrumental version of that song, and listen to it on repeat as you are reading. Then, when you are taking a quiz or a test or need to recall something from that chapter, think of that song. It is an association trick that will make it easier to remember things, and having one song associated with each chapter will keep things organized in your head.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This class was a lot of fun to learn about different parts of time in the US, but the teacher doesn't teach very well, so you'll do a lot of self-learning and reading the textbook by yourself.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about different groups that came to be through the US, and the different forms of government and how the US became the nation that it is, the struggles people had to overcome to make the US the land of liberty it (supposedly) is today.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the textbook! Every chapter! Read it all!
