    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    United States History is a class that I literally learned something new and interesting in nearly everyday. The class is very material heavy, meaning that it is very important to read and understand the material each day, or it will be difficult to stay up to date before the exam. Although the class involved a lot of reading and writing, I was more than prepared when it came to the AP exam. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone who is interested in learning the in-depth history of the United States, and strengthening their reading and writing skills as well.

    Course highlights:

    I thoroughly enjoyed learning about the early history of the U.S., as well as the Civil War and Reconstruction time periods. In general, the entire course is very informative and well worth your time, so any aspect of U.S. history is interesting to learn about in this class. I also really enjoyed analyzing primary historical documents when discussing events in our history. Overall, I gained a much broader perspective in terms of how events in this country's past shaped our present America today.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you decide to take this course, AP U.S. History, I would reccomend that you be prepared to read the assigned material, and study well for the occasional test. Although daily quizzes are given, they are based on assigned reading, so reading the material is definitely going to make the class easier to handle overall. I would also recommend paying attention in class, and though this may be obvious, I found listening to the details in class itself makes some of the difficult topics much easier to understand. Overall, if you pay attention in the classroom and learn good reading habits, you should be successful in the class, and leave being more knowledgeable of U.S History than you thought possible.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because you learn at your own pace, but you learn so much. You take notes, color for vocab, and do current events but it all goes together with the lesson. He doesn't push you overboard with work, homework, or projects because he understands high school students.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the fight with Britain over freedom, why the Indian War happened, and the life of presidents while they were in office. The highlights are presidents, wars, and the U.S. changing over time

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you take honors you do a little extra work but it's a "Try or fail" kind of class. If you try you pass, if you mess around and don't do any work or don't attempt to try you fail.
