    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Taking AP U.S. History has helped me to be a better student and I also believe that it has made me a better citizen. It made me a better student because there was a lot of work that I was accountable for staying on top of, and the written essays throughout the year helped me to be a more efficient writer. I was writing a DBQ in 30 minutes by the end! It has helped me to be a better citizen because I am now more aware of history, government, and economics. Knowing the facts helps me to be aware and able to form my own opinions on new topics in the media today.

    Course highlights:

    One of my favorite activities in AP U.S. History was when we went to the Indiana Historical Society and got to watch reenactments of the Ball Brothers, prescriptions, and Irish immigrants within the states working in camps. This trip truly put those events into perspective and we learned that Muncie is credited for creating the ball canning jars and that the Irish immigrants didn't mind the work camps because they weren't terribly brutal.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To be successful in AP U.S. History a tool that my teacher offered for my class was the framework online. The College Board offers framework and it is very useful. If you take the framework and know the questions you will be able to think further into each of the subjects and you'll know a lot more than you would if you just read your book.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I loved going to the class every day. I never moped about it or dreaded it because my teacher was amazing and my classmates were great. The course work was super interesting and it felt good to finally be learning things that affected me.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about our own history from the founding of our country to current times. We went through all of the presidents and what they did. We explored all of the different eras and important decades. It was great to be able to know what older people were talking about. And because we learned about current events, the news was way more interesting.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not procrastinate. Even though the textbook sometimes seems boring, you really need to know the information. There will not really seem to be very much homework if you stay on top of things. But if you leave work till the last minute then it can easily become overwhelming.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this because the teacher is phenomenal and has an excellent way of teaching to make history fun!

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about different times periods, and very specific events in those time periods. We learned a lot about what the presidents were like and how they contributed to history as a whole.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say to make sure you do the outlines for chapters and read the textbooks. Some parts of the textbook are unnecessary, but it will contribute to the chapter as a whole. Also, if you don't understand, be sure to ask for help.
