    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course was initially challenging for me, as the style of the questions was nothing like I had previously experienced. The multiple choice questions are based off of a short passage or excerpt than questions based off of an analysis rather than factual knowledge. This class was interesting and broadened my knowledge about the history of the United States, which I now have a greater appreciation for. The challenging questions ultimately improved my ability to analyze and apply abstract thinking to passage-based problems.

    Course highlights:

    This course personally created a greater appreciation toward my present everyday life. Learning about how and why we are guaranteed so many rights, makes me appreciate the struggles people endured throughout history to ensure future citizens could enjoy these rights. Prior to this class I hardly knew how many World Wars the United States had been in, but now I know all about the details of all the wars experienced in American history. Through learning about the past mistakes and successes of our country I am able to form educated political views on how to prevent the same mistakes from recurring.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I definitely recommend participation in class, reading the assigned chapters for homework, and answering practice questions designed to mimic those on the actual AP exam. I also watched YouTube videos that reviewed each major period of U.S. History, which I found extremely helpful.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class helps you develop analytical skills and be able to decipher confusing writing styles. The tests are written in very confusing ways, and so are the passages. The answers often trick you. This class makes you analyze many pictures and passages and connect their message to what you already know. It makes you think about the context of when something was written or drawn, as well as writer's purpose, biases, and audience in order to grasp fully what the intended message is supposed to be. This class will REALLY help you on the reading section of the SAT.

    Course highlights:

    I really liked learning about how different belief systems shaped history so much. For example, Enlightenment principles and the Great Awakenings really influenced American culture. I liked seeing how historical built onto each other. Historical events don't happen out of nowhere, they have causes and connections to other things that happened. I like how this class teaches you WHY things happened, not just WHAT happened. It teaches you how to think analytically.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go on Albert.io and do the AP US History practice tests. Do as many as you can and really TRY on it. Those will prepare you extremely well for the AP exam, trust me, that's how I studied and I got a 4. Also, go on Quizlet and look at past exams. That will give you practice too. Lastly, actually READ the Amsco book. It is ONLY filled with things you need to know so you will not be wasting your time reading it. The answers for the Amsco practice tests are online so do them if you have time.
