    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Our school runs on trimesters instead of semesters, so it was extremely hard to cram in all the information that we needed in twelve weeks of instruction. Also, I felt that more hands on learning would have helped me more than just watching movies almost everyday. Finally, if we would have practiced writing more DBQ's I feel that I would have been better prepared for the AP exam at the end of the year.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the highlights of this course was learning about the Gilded Age and learning about how bad the living conditions were back then. The book that we read called, The Jungle, was a great read and very educational. I also enjoyed learning about WWI, or the Great War, because I never actually knew how that war started until I took that class.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise to do some summer work before taking the class because just jumping right into the course material was rough. I also advise to take great notes during class and refer back to them often. It is also a must to read every chapter carefully because most, if not all of the test questions, were word-for-word right out of the text book.
