    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I found AP US History a highly entertaining and educational class. I would definately recommend the class to students, whether they enjoy history or not, as it teaches a variety of skills.

    Course highlights:

    Not only did I learn valuable information on American History, dating back to colonial times, I also learned many valuable writing skills. While the class was a history course, it also had a strong emphasis on writing ability. Now that I am in AP English, I find that my historical context knowledge, as well as ability to form a coherent argument under a limited time frame very valuable.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you read all of the assigned reading, it is there to help you, not hurt you. Don't be afraid to ask the teacher for help, and also check out YouTube for some nifty review videos that will reinfoce your knowledge.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It's a required course, but I definitely recommend taking AP because the teachers are amazing and they really prepare you for the test, and they make it fun!

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were definitely the World War units in particular. The teachers make these units interesting to learn, despite the awful nature of the actual events. They have videos and songs and enactments to draw students in and I loved learning about it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you pay attention to the "writing tips" they give you for the SAQ's and DBQ's and FRQ's. They're super helpful not only for the class but also for the actual AP test. Read the book! Half the questions on the class tests come from there and the book is actually an interesting read!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you truly put effort into this class, heed your teacher's advice, and complete the coursework, you are almost guaranteed a 5 on the AP test. This class was not full of rote memorization. While we did have certain names and years ingrained into us, we were also taught to use this information in a meaningful way. The teacher continually provided us with AP simulations, in the form of both multiple choice and essays. Each essay was graded and came with ways to improve, which were very helpful when it came time for the AP test. But past the scores and test preparation, this class was genuinely fun. Random fun facts and an engaging presentation of the material made learning not only effective but fun as well.

    Course highlights:

    This class stays with you, even once you've graduated high school. Especially living in the US, the thorough understanding of US history given by this course puts one at an advantage in understanding current US actions and politics. Past the specific knowledge of history imparted by this course, the difficulty of this course and amount of material will teach any dedicated student how to effectively study and retain knowledge, which are important skills in college.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in class and take notes. Failure to do so will greatly diminish your chances of success in the course and on the AP test. In particular, at Troy, the teachers of this course upload powerpoints online. To avoid missing information while frantically copying down each slide, it may be helpful to print the powerpoints and spend more time listening, occasionally jotting down anything not covered in the slides. Additionally, do all the assigned reading. Coming to class with, at the very least, a vague understanding of the day's material will make learning and retaining knowledge much easier.
