    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    APUSH is great if you are deeply fascinated about how our lives today have been affected by the actions of our ancestors and founding fathers. The structure of APUSH is a great peek into a college styled work load, teaches time management and helps with your academic discipline.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite units in this course, had to be the Progressive Era, The Roaring Twenties and The Civil Rights Movement. We discussed the reformations made to the US and how they are still relevant to our lives today. If I could visit any time period in history, i'd love to visit a party from the twenties so I enjoyed learning about that era. The Civil Rights Movement unit was important to me as a young black woman in today's society, to learn more in depth what my ancestors endured and to see how far black people have come since then. It gives me hope, strength and the confidence to push, not only my people but everyone farther that where we are now.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Going into this course, make sure you take it serious and do all of your work. Read all of your primary sources because they go hand in hand with your lessons and tests. Not only are they beneficial for class but they are great conversation starters for people who like to debate and discuss meaningful topics. Manage your time properly and as soon as you get an assignment, complete it: don't procrastinate. Always come to class prepared with highlighters, pencils, pens, paper and erasers because you WILL need it to annotate documents and take notes.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it not only taught me a lot about U.S. History which allowed me to make a 3 on the AP exam but it also helped me to learn time management and to work hard. It also improved my writing my writing skills.

    Course highlights:

    My first week I had learned way more about Native Americans than I had in my whole life and then I got a better understanding of each of the Presidents and time periods. It was like you learned something before but now you were going over it with a fine toothed comb. Everything was so much more specific.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    A great work ethic is beneficial to your success. You need this because without it your work will pile up and you will be overwhelmed and that is not a great position to be in.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I will not lie, it is a lot of work, but the discussions and facts that you learn in this class are worth it. I can relate so many things learned in this class to what is happening in the real world. I can tell you so much about this country's great history now! And I really love history.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this class were the projects and discussions. The projects, despite the word, were actually really fun and enlightening. As long as you had the information, you could relay it in anyway you wanted to you. We also had a lot of real world discussions which allowed us to see what other people were thinking

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Have an open ind and don't think so much on the work, but think about all the things you can do what the information you learned
