    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course itself is rigorous and not for the faint of heart, there is a lot of work involved both inside and outside of the classes which may fill you with fear. I recommend the class because you get an in depth type of knowledge through the course about American History that you wouldn't go over in honors or a regular class.

    Course highlights:

    Learning about modern times was what was the most enjoyable. The way the course is set up is a timeline that from time to time connects to events in both the future and the past. The 20's flappers and the recession for example can be argued to have been predictable from the very get go of the revolution.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I recommend taking your time with all the writing and readings. The DBQ's may seem irrelevant but they can make and kill your grade if not taken seriously, every assignment submitted has it's reason and is not just 'busy work'.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend taking it under a teacher that understands the material and is passionate in teaching. I did not have this experience and had a teacher who refused to truly teach us and instead hoped we would understand and learn the material through reading a textbook with honors diction. I remember nothing of this class and when I took it online to bump up my grade, found myself in love with the material.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the different eras that the US has gone through over the last 200-300 years. The highlights were the 20's full of flappers and money as credit cards became increasingly popular and the crash of the stock market hadn't happened yet. Holocaust, Japanese interment camps, etc.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take your time learning material. Do not fear asking for help and look at AP PRACTICE problems that were on the test years before. They may be different wordings from what you are used to but don't let that scare you, it is asking a basic question with fancy adjectives and tones thrown in. Have confidence, and watch as many videos as possible to retain main ideas that you can then connect to points.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because to live/settle in a country it is important to learn about its past. It's also interesting learning the foundation of our country. Personally, I thought the class was the most important and interesting social studies class I've taken in my life.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the civil rights movement and the industrial revolution. I learned that the United States and our past sets up our future. Our country is the way it is now because of its history and we are who we are now because of our past choices.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to take notes and pay attention to all the pictures you have to interpret because they will come back. Take extra time to study! Studying is so important for understanding and memorizing the material. Study guides and quizlet are your friends. Ask questions and get help if you need it. You know more than you think. AP World History students will have an advantage.
