    work ethic, and time management

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class prepares you for college by ensuring that you know how to take good notes as well as helps establish good work ethic. The class is one of the more demanding classes you can take but the class leaves you with better understanding of what helped build the US into what it is today.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the importance of presidents in wars and how their decisions affected the US, such as how President Hoover left the US stuck in the Great Depression.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed, you need to take down all your notes and read them when you get home. Make sure you study all of them. You also need to take all projects seriously. Although we only had one, the project counted as our final. For projects, you need to go as far in depth as you can.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    AP U.S history goes much more in depth into the subject than any honor or base U.S history class you can take. The class prepares you extensively for the college course rigor as well with multiple essays, taking notes on select but very important information, and doing a lot of individual research.

    Course highlights:

    The course provided me with extensive knowledge of U.S history and some economic understanding. The course rigor resulted in a lot of classmate camaraderie, and the papers prepared me for writing long, structured essays about a specific or multiple topics. I also learned how to best manage my time.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take excessive amounts of notes and review those notes religiously. Also, any chance you get to write about any topic, take it. An interesting and helpful source of information is John Greene on YouTube.
