    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It was a fun course for me because I love U.S. History and it challenged me and helped me become a better student.

    Course highlights:

    The Revolutionary Era and WWII were the highlights of the course for me because I thought they were the most interesting topics to learn. I not only learned a lot about U.S. History, but also test taking strategy, essay writing, critical thinking, and interpretation of documents.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You have to keep up with your reading and book work, do not put things off. The tests will get easier as you go because you will get more comfortable taking them. You do not need to worry about taking a ton of notes as long as you are paying attention during lectures.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Ap Us History was my first AP class that I have taken. As expected, it was challenging from the beginning to end. However, it really prepared me for the next step in high school. The class teaches you much more than just facts and dates about the history of the United States. The teacher goes in depth about very meaningful and controversial topics that shaped the United States while teaching you skills that you can apply in other classes and be successful.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the highlights from this class were the test and the final grade you received. It sounds weird but seeing how good you do in one of those test really makes you proud. My teacher specifically made our test a lot harder so we would be more prepared for the AP test, and with every assessment i got back, it just made me feel proud of myself. Along with tests, seeing your grade improve from test to test was also a very meaningful moment. This is one of those classes were if you really work hard, you will see the rewards.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    One of the most precious advices I can give is to pay attention in class. Your teacher will give you notes, but the best information to record and know is the discussion and debates you have in class with your classmates and the teacher.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because​ you learn more than just history. You learn how to write proper essays for placement-like tests, and overall this class prepares you extremely well for harder classes that you will be taking in the future.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to write clear essays. I learned how to write them specifically for the test. This became extremely helpful to know when I had to take writing tests for the ACT and other placement tests. I also remember that for the first time ever in any history class, I learned about time periods and suddenly everything seemed to come together. You really feel like an expert historian when you finish up with this course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Watch Crash Course on Youtube. It can be extremely helpful when you need a quick refreshing on the course materials.
