    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to every high school student looking for a teacher who will ready them for the real life in college.

    Course highlights:

    Mr. Eovaldi was the highlight of this course, because he showed me what someone who is passionate, caring, and supportive looks like as a school teacher.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always finish your concepts on time, and give Mr. Eovaldi the thanks he deserves.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Wilson is, debatably, the best teacher in the school. He always have jokes and references that connects to his lessons and is good keys to study on. He keeps the class fun and active.

    Course highlights:

    Mr. Wilson is an African-American teacher and when he taught us about the black hand, he would raise his hand up high and that gave the class a reminder and a tool on how to remember the black hand, and it also gave us a laugh.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say, pay attention in class. He doesn't give out a lot of homework, so if you play around in his class and miss something, then you might not do so well.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I genuinely learned more about the world, myself, my values, and even writing in this history class than I have in any other. Mr. Eovaldi pushes you to work harder and learn more. Of course, sometimes that pushing can be entirely overwhelming, but it is an awesome learning experience. The class forces you to learn how to study, what questions to ask, and how to take notes. Also, being that it is a history course, the discussions can and will go off the rails often--but that is the best part of the class. From feminist arguments to critiquing the public school system, philosophies and new ideas fly free. Also, Mr. Eovaldi focuses heavily on philosophy and its impact of the world around us, which I have never heard another teacher discuss to that length. AP US history has a very infamous reputation at Chippewa, but honestly, do not let that scare you. If you are willing to put in the effort to do the homework and you pay attention in class, you have nothing to fear.

    Course highlights:

    I learned more about writing professional and convincing papers in AP US history than I did in any English class I took in high school (and I was in accelerated, honors, and AP English, so it isn't like I took the blow offs). Also, as I said earlier, the discussions of life and the world were my real favorites and helped me form my own opinions on world issues.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    When you need help, ask! Don't spend half the year not understanding how to write a DBQ (like me). If you feel as though you're trying your hardest but you are doing poorly, ask Mr. Eovaldi for advice. I know tons of people are very scared of him, but he genuinely wants his students to succeed, so ask for help when you need it. Also, and this is important, do not stop thinking for yourself. Do not let teacher opinions become fact to you. Listen, consider, talk about it, but don't just accept everything thoughtlessly.
