    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class was full of alluring American history that is often skipped over in most history classes. The information is almost necessary to find out where we came from and how America got to where it is now. I have grown to appreciate America for who we are and the struggle our ancestors had. Though our history was clearly tough, it has greatly paid off as we are now a world power in the world today. This was one great class I will never forget!

    Course highlights:

    I loved attaining information about the Native Americans and the mountain men like Hugh Glass. We were also taught about the battles and the wars that maybe we as american citizens are now that familiar with like the Mexican-American war. I also got to dig into the hidden history of some of the most famous generals during the Civil war like Lee and Grant. Though the students and I did goof off a lot in the class, I, as well as my classmates worked very hard because we knew the teacher was not afraid to give out detentions or referrals to students who slacked off in their work.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take Coach Howser seriously when he has his baseball bat in his hand or you will be sorry. Tests are harder than you think since most of the names all start with the letter J. Most importantly, have fun, stay focused, and remember that another name for the Battle of Little Bighorn is the Battle of the Greasy Grass.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is interesting, and it is super important to understand our nation's history.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of the course was having in-class simulations of a slave vs. free debate from when our nation was founded. I learned (I was on the pro-slave side) that it is hard to put yourself into a different perspective. I also learned that the pro-free people were not entirely pure in their intentions either.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would suggest keeping up with the reading so you can spend class time discussing/ analyzing.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I loved the material covered, and Mr. Broaddus is an awesome teacher. It's important to understand our nation's history so we can be better in the future. Also, history is rather interesting.

    Course highlights:

    One of the biggest concepts we learned was the idea of Jefferson vs. Hamilton in the founding of our government. The founding fathers didn't all agree.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice is to read the book and study throughout the course. There is a lot of material covered, and the in-class discussions are more useful if you have studied outside of class.
