    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The fact that it gives students a chance to earn college credits early and for free makes it worthwhile. Although it is a pretty tough course and not for everyone, if a student is willing to be dedicated for the whole course, study thoroughly, and be disciplined overall, then this course is for them.

    Course highlights:

    Aside from the specific topics of what the course actually teaches, the class goes in-depth in to the reasoning regarding why events have happened and continue to happen in United States History. I learned that the tests are less about name-dropping and identifying general information and much more about truly understanding the why and how of specific events, and the political and social aspects of these events especially. I especially learned the flaws within the country throughout history and how that has an effect currently.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the assigned textbook as much as possible, and don't fall behind on reading it and let the chapters pile up. I personally felt like the course was fast-paced because it is a lot of information to retain up until the AP test, so if you lag behind on the reading it can be hard to catch up since the chapters are not exactly short. Also, keeping up with the textbook aids your knowledge for tests, quizzes, and papers much better so it is worthwhile to read. The course spans from the mid-1400s to the 1980s and goes in-depth so there is much to retain.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend US History because it taught me not only what happened years ago and what year, but it taught me why it happened, who was involved and the outcome it had on history today.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how apply historical thinking skills as I learned about my past approximately late 1400 to present learning how to analyze evidence, makinh historical connections as well as chronological reasoning.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read. This course is not passed by memorization. This course is difficult but rewarding. It teaches you alot about our history and the reasoning for all the past events.
