    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would really recommend this course even if you think that history is boring. Once you experience this class you will remember things that are unbelievable. This hands on experience will rise mnay questions in your head.

    Course highlights:

    I think the highlights of the course were learning about the different kings, queens, emperors, and other major leaders of civilization had stories that were very interesting. I also loved learning more about world religions.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to big portfolios and write many papers. Although it seems like a lot of work you will be engaged in the learning and interested. You won't even realize that the class has ended but there are still so many questions that you have and the discussions are endless.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to other students because it is beyond interesting. I am not overly keen on history classes, but learning about the cultures and histories of places all over the world was somehow fascinating to me, and it gave me a larger perspective and appreciation for other people. The course is a good introduction to AP classes, though the teacher is extremely strict. I was so stressed coming into this class every day simply because of the teacher and the amount of work he assigned, but I got through it after a few good cries. If you plan to take WHAP, I would just hope you get Mrs. West.

    Course highlights:

    I loved learning about the history of the world and the different empires. It was interesting to see how the various empires throughout the ages struggled for power in battles that ultimately shaped the world as we know it today. I learned to appreciate other cultures and understand their backgrounds.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the textbook if you have time. It will help you so much on the tests and quizzes, and the note card definitions are normally found in there easily. I would also recommend to have a buddy that you can cry with, because this class will be the hardest class you've ever taken. However, never lose hope, because any AP classes you take afterwards will seem like a joke they're so easy.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It was the most challenging class I've ever taken, but it's made the rest high school relatively easier.

    Course highlights:

    This course is a general overview of World History. That being said, it focusses on trends and certain events rather than details. The great thing about it is that I can put a lot of miscellaneous readings into context. I took Art History and AP US History the next year. Those were much easier because of WHAP. It'll help you shape a world view, or at least gain some perspective, and the class itself prepares you for college level courses.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take quick notes: main ideas, no more than 1-2 bullets per paragraph. And do the reading. It's not as hard as it seems.
