    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this class because it is the first class most schools offer as an AP course. Even if you do not enjoy history, you learn a lot from just having to do the work. It prepares you for the hard work that you will have to put into school whether in high school or college. Through the essays and reading you will become a better student. Also, the political cartoons are very interesting to review.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite parts about this course were watching movies on presidents or important historical moments, learning about how different the United States was only a hundred years ago, and learning to be able to just look at a picture and know what time in history it corresponded with.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this class you cannot, cannot procrastinate. Use any time the teacher gives you in class to get the work done. There are a lot of online tools you can use to pass this class. Other teachers put notes online, videos, and study guides that will help you a lot!

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is recommended to those who enjoy history and will actually take several hours reading through the indigenous book. I say indigenous book because, one, you learn about how the Natives were in America before the British arrived, and two, because many agree that they have a tremendously difficult time reading the course's textbook. It is like a native language, but in reality, it really is English! One is able to ask questions about the reading in class, but because hardly anyone has actually read through the book, there are rarely questions asked. Yes, there are books by the Princeton Review or CollegeBoard to help clarify the reading, but the test are based on the book which hits more details than the helpful review books. The teacher is great, although if you like note taking and lectures during class one will not enjoy this course because he only lectured two times the entire school year. Overall, I would not recommend this course. In fact, when I see this year's sophomores with their American Pageant book on their side, I cry for them with deep agony on the inside remembering my troubling hours after school with my American Pageant book, a dictionary, notebook to write my notes in, and coffee to help me get through the long 30 pages of information I would have easily understood with a less complex book.

    Course highlights:

    After taking this course I learned many things about America's history. My favorite part of this course was watching movies about the presidents because they played such a vital role in our countries history. Next, I enjoyed learning about slavery because I believe it was a problem that should never be ignored. Many people were hurt during this sad period in our countries history and awareness should always be spread, so that this never occurs again! Overall, I learned many things throughout this course that I would have never known and taking U.S. History actually makes World History a breeze!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell students considering this course to only take it if they enjoy history and will actually put time into the class. If one does not enjoy history or just does not push his or her self to learn information, I am almost certain that because of the amount of work that comes along with this class they will regret the class and be unprepared for the exam. Being unprepared for the exam is the worst part of this class because the entire point of the class is to take the exam at the end of the year and pass it!
