    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is really hard.... Mr Rhames is a very good teacher but the content is very hard and if you dont grasp the concepts of the dbq and stuff you will seriously struggle.

    Course highlights:

    Basically when you take this class you are going to learn specifics and youre not going to use any of the information later in life unless youre going to be a history major.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You have to do the reading and make sure to do the extra credit for every chapter.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Rahmes is an absolutely amazing teacher, he is extremely passionate about his work and does a great job teaching the course and all of the horrible DBQ requirements.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were learning the origin of America and all of our history up until the present. We not only learned this countries history, but also all of the requirements for each different type of essay on the exam.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take great notes. You're being testing on 3 centuries worth of information, going back to notes from the beginning of the year is crucial to learning and memorizing as much material as you can.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Difficult but worth it APUSH, while being a relatively tough course, looks amazing on college applications. There is nightly reading, though the amount varies (he'll never give you a 20 page reading to do overnight). Notes are optional, but definitely worth the extra credit on quizzes. Mr Rhames can be a bit intimidating, but is just really passionate about his course and wants everyone to do well. Hence, he prepares everyone thoroughly for the exam, as long as you do your work.

    Course highlights:

    What we learn is pretty much stated in the course title-- US history. It doesn't get too detailed (like the exact day of an event) but years and chronology can be important, especially with regard to essays. We start with the lives of Native Americans before Europeans came to the Americas and end roughly around 2010.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    As long as you read the book, you'll be fine. He tends to grade more harshly than AP will, but that's just so the exam is relatively easy in comparison. Tests are set up like it will be on the AP exam, with a "stimulus" (little blurp about context) and then a question. If you do well in AP World, AP Human, or AICE Euro (meaning an A or a B), then I would recommend it.
