    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    It is very trick and a lot of reading. The reading is primarily from a textbook with long chapters, or from a college supplemental reading booklet. If you are not a big reader, do not take.

    History from the beginning until the eighteenth century.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read very carefully, and study hard for the AP Test.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    APUSH is a very challenging and engaging class. It is so important to know about our history as Americans, and this class is a fun way to do it!

    Course highlights:

    I definitely learned a lot about analysis of topics and how to write a concise essay. A lot of the course involves analyzing events, social movements, and leaders.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You definitely have to read and take notes on the chapters. In addition, do the cenage online quizzes. They help a lot.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    We learned about history, but at a much more complex level. For example, when we learned about Jefferson Davis, we looked at his gravestone. Although this is a strange way of learning, it pushed us to analyze what was written. I also enjoyed learning the different sides of stories. Often we are taught as though history is black and white. Yet more often than not, what we think is often heavily skewed. This course taught me to think in a different way.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about how to write and how to analyze different pieces of material. For the AP test there are a few different short answer questions, so I learned how to write long essays and then how to keep them concise. I also enjoyed watching in depth movies about subjects I normally wouldn't watch.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It's important that you understand there is a lot of writing and analyzing involved. This class requires more than just memorizing facts and dates and people. The questions given require you to connect what you memorized to a larger scale. The idea of umbrella concepts are highly apparent here.
