    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course because it taught me a lot about our background and where our country came from. This course made me study harder and want to learn more. Although this course seemed slightly difficult I enjoyed every moment of this course. This course made me push harder and respect my academics more. I grew to realize through this course that not everyone has the same opportunity to education as we do and it made me thankful.

    Course highlights:

    Throughout this course I learned how the United States built themselves up from the ground. This course gave me so much information about the background and the diversity of the United States. I learned that history does repeat itself and the United States is a perfect example of that. You get to learn how the involvements the United States has effected other countries. Another great thing that we discuss in this course is how we became so diverse in the first place, and all of the migrations into the United States from different countries and ethnic groups and why they came here.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    When considering this course you must have the mindset to be able to push yourself and want to accomplish things. There was a lot of work involved in completing this course but it is all worth it. You have to write a few essays (DBQ/LAQ) but you get used to it. You have to be willing to stay up long nights for studying and have good organizational skills. You must take constant notes and make time in your schedule to review and study. I recommend this course if you like vigor.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course not only because I have a great love for history but because I learned so much from it. This subject is such an important thing to have knowledge in and this course does an excellent job of breaking down American history from start to present day.

    Course highlights:

    I think the biggest highlight of this course was the teacher herself. Mrs. Jenkins is such a passionate teacher who strives to show her students what American history is all about and share her great love for the subject. I learned many things in this course about America. I didn't just get a blanket of facts to remember in order to pass the test. I really got involve with this course and learned how to connect history to the present.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice I would give to students considering taking this course would be to not be discouraged by the amount of work there is. Although I put in hours every other night studying and doing homework, I would do it all over again. This isn't just busy work. It really helps you learn and form your own thoughts on history. The hard work pays off and the things you learn will stay with you well into college.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This teacher is very passionate about this topic. She absolutely loves, U.S. history, and it shows. She always encouraged us to do our best, and I feel that we were very well-prepared for the AP exam.

    Course highlights:

    I feel as though I learned a lot about our country that I was unaware of. Additionally, Ms. Jenkins always tried to keep the lessons entertaining, even about boring topics.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This is definitely a course that you have to study for. I don't recommend this course if you just want to coast through class. That being said, the topic isn't too difficult, as most people already know some basic U.S. history.
