    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Speciner is a great teacher and goes into the material as deeply as he can. There are occasional DBQs, so writing is involved, but he tends to be pretty nice while grading them and tries to help you out. Not a lot of daily homework, but he does give weekly homework that most students forget about.

    Course highlights:

    Some people really don't like lecture-style teaching, but his style worked well for me. He explained things in detail and had accompanying visuals on a PowerPoint, which helped a lot with taking notes.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My number one piece of advice would be: don't forget to do your current event assignments. They can be easy to forget, and they will come back to bite you in the butt.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Throughout this class I was challenged and pushed mentally by my instructor, which allowed me to push myself as well. I can state that I have never learned as much in a history class until this specific one. I would recommend this course and teacher to any student who is serious about their future.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights from this class were that you were treated as an adult, but you had to act as an adult too. This class allows you to critically think at a very high level and think in ways you have not before. Aside from the U.S history aspect I learned what it was like to be in a college like environment before actually attending a college, class was more of a discussion rather than reading notes the whole time. This really made me enjoy being involved in class.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course is a bit difficult due to the problem solving and work at times, but it was a great class to take. Hours studying or working for the class a week really do all depend on the student and how bad they want a good grade. - If a student is able to, try to read up on U.S history before the course just so they can have some background knowledge.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course not only taught me a lot about U.S. history, but it also taught me how to think about historical events and their causes and effects for myself and how to draw connections between people and events.

    Course highlights:

    This course focused on United States history, starting at the Civil War. The highlights were when the course focused on women or ethnic minorities.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do all the assigned work in this course. Teacher does not accept late or incomplete work. Participate in the discussions and think about the connections between events and people.
