    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend this course because Mr. Chesne could have definitely done a better job of preparing us for the AP test. He nice guy who is smart and really knows his history facts, but he was unable to give us assignments that made the information we learned stick in our minds. He also didn't do a good job of teaching us how to write essays. When he gave us an essay assignment, we would not receive a grade for it until months later and that was only after we begged to see those grades. Sometimes, he would not grade them at all so we never went over them, which lead to nine of us knowing how to correctly write any of the essays for the World History AP test. Overall, the class was pretty easy because we didn't have many tough assignments, but an easy class did not lead to an easy AP test.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this class was the "Cards Against World History" game we played towards the end of the year because it really tested our knowledge in a fun way and also the song about the East Asian Dynasties because it helped us remember them in order. Chesne is also just a funny guy which made class more enjoyable.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't rely on just coming to class to do well on the AP test. You have to do the nightly reading on your own to gain the knowledge you really need. Complete the handouts he gives and study them to do well on the unit tests. ALWAYS prepare for the Socratic seminars.
