    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I absolutely loved this class. My teacher was fantastic and I learned so much about American History. Not only did the class expand my knowledge, but I sincerely think it helped develop my comprehension, writing, and researching skills.

    Course highlights:

    Maybe its just that I really enjoy history and social study classes, but APUSH was definitely one of my favorite classes last year. I believe we started during the Columbus era, and worked our way through until modern day politics and events. We covered everything from "King Jackson's" presidency, to hoovervilles of the Great Depression, to Hippies of the 60s with HIV. So much is covered in this class, you're bound to like at least some part of it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are not a person who is willing to turn in assignments, study, or focus in class., then this course is not for you. The class involves a lot of lecture, so if you're not focused you will miss information and learning that you need to be successful. It is not that the class is extremely hard, but it is very time consuming because of all the essays, research, reading, etc. If you don't take time outside of class to do your work you will sound like an idiot during debates and class discussions.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    As a high school student taking AP courses you are obviously motivated and looking to do well in college. This was the best class I took in high school to prepare me for college and Mr. Lipovac was a great teacher who really kept the whole class engaged.

    Course highlights:

    The biggest thing you will take from this course is writing. We had almost weekly essays (not long, only 2-3 pages) as well as a giant research paper at the end of each semester. At first it can seem a little overwhelming but I promise you will get used to it and be grateful for the opportunity to write so many little papers. By the end of that class I could sit down and write a three page paper in 45 minutes and get an A on it, which I know has prepared me for college courses.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are someone that needs notes to study, take notes on everything he says. Personally, I don't like to take notes so I recorded each class and would just listen to it later but I know almost everyone who has taken that class has notebooks full of notes. I would also say get involved in the class debates and discussions. It was the best way for me to retain information because I felt personally vested in making my side of the discussion heard and I had to pay close attention to the opposing side so I could argue against it. It's a challenging course but it's also really fun so enjoy it!
