    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it ultimately was very useful in college to skip United States History.

    Course highlights:

    Overall, I liked that I gained a greater understanding of American history.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't stress all the time and don't be so detailed in your notes. As long you get the overall gist (e.g. people, motivations) you will be fine.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Is this one of the most challenging and rigorous courses Zionsville has to offer? Possibly. Is the nightly workload much greater than most non-AP courses? Yes. Can you take this class and do well on the exam? Yes. DO NOT be deterred by the rumors you have heard about the "daunting" APUSH course at Zionsville HIgh School. The reward is much higher than the risk, Mr. Rodgers OVER prepares you for the AP exam, and you'll learn so much about yourself over the course of the year. (Plus, it looks great on college applications AND you can always drop out :)

    Course highlights:

    When the entire junior class told me that APUSH was one of the top three most difficult classes in the school, I didn't flinch. I was up for the challenge of AP U.S. History. Besides, if I had the choice of challenging myself or taking a "slack-off" class, of course I was going to pick the harder route. First semester, I found myself surrounded by the top brains of the school. Neil, salutatorian and physics genius. Forrest, QuizBowl superstar and every teacher's favorite student. Tommy, extremely charming AND could ace any AP Biology test sans studying. What was I amongst our school's finest? Utterly average, that's what. As first semester flew by, I was barely surviving. Yes, I was diligently completing all assignments, but I still felt incompetent compared to my APUSH friends. I couldn't believe how much harder I had to work than they did, and even then, I felt nowhere close to their level. I often thought, "What's wrong with me?" It was as if no matter how hard I tried, I still wasn't good enough. Changing class periods second semester, I was turned completely upside-down. Without my genius colleagues to make up for what I thought I didn't know, I was forced to participate in class discussion. I constantly joked that I was going to do poorly on the AP exam, but inside I feared that I actually would. I feared that months of toil would only amount to complete failure. Yet, when May came around, I was surprisingly more than prepared for the exam than I thought. APUSH taught me more than history. I'd learned that hard work pays off. I'd learned that you don't have to be the best to be your best. But most importantly, I'd learned to trust and believe in myself.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Mr. Rodgers will not let you fail. If you have questions, GO ASK! Whatever you do, DON'T get behind on readings, don't blow binder checks, and don't get behind on DocAnalyses. Also, if you know an upperclassmen, ask them for their binder. It will help you tons.
