    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Because I had a fabulous teacher, the class was very engaging. The class was challenging, but not impossibly difficult. My teacher provided us with a substantial list of key terms to focus on, and we practiced for various parts of the AP test throughout the year. I felt prepared going into the test, and I will forever be interested in US history. Overall, I recommend this course because I came out of the class with a passion for my country's history.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the nitty gritty details about how America came to be and the people involved in the process. The course including important parts of American history including important figures, the French and Indian War, World War 1, World War 2, 9/11, and various events in between. I also learned about the development of political parties and political views. Finally, this course improved my writing abilities. Preparing for the timed Document Based Questions and timed Free Response Questions taught me how to write well in a short amount of time.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students to write notes about key terms in a notebook rather than on an online document. Writing this content down helped me truly remember the information even to this day. I would also advise students to make their own study guides before every test and to look over the review questions at the end of each chapter in the textbook.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is an incredibly interesting course because students are intrigued more to learn about Untied States history.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the course of politics throughout American history. At first, I thought the subject would be boring and useless, but I found that it was incredibly engaging to learn how the discourse has changed thorughout the years.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Remember to read the book and before the tests look up review questions to remind yourself of the topics.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course helped me to see US history from an entirely new perspective. Taking this course at an AP level allowed me and my peers to delve into the fascinating details of our country's history in a way I never had before, and has inspired me to pursue a career in a similar field.

    Course highlights:

    This course made me realize that nothing about this nation's history is perfect, and for that matter that nothing about our history can be judged in black and white. The circumstances under which this country was founded are incredibly different from present circumstances and this class helped me to compare and understand how we have evolved as a nation. My favorite unit had to do with cultural revolutions in the 60s and 70s.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are someone who has an interest in history, government, or politics, or even at a base level wants to learn more about the United States and engage in thought provoking discussion about our nation's policies, then this class is for you. Do not rule this class out simply because it is an AP and you are concerned about the work load.
