    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course goes in depth into the history of the United States and teaches students analytical skills necessary for synthesizing and explaining events. While the work load may seem daunting at first, with time it becomes easier because these learned skills have become a second nature.

    Course highlights:

    One aspect of this class that was very enjoyable was learning and understanding that history actually does repeat itself. By studying from the pre-columbian era all the way until modern times as recent as 2013, one is able to recognize patterns in how governments are formed and how powers can be easily abused.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this class it is absolutely imperative to do the nightly readings. While the chapters may be long, not reading puts the student in a very dangerous position that will fall behind in the curriculum and will make it difficult for them to succeed.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because you get to learn more in-depth knowledge of the US's history. A student can also gain skills writing detailed essays about a certain topic in history and organizing a variety of resources such as historical documents into one essay. This course generates a student's thinking skills in comparing past and present history through writing, projects, reviews, and current knowledge.

    Course highlights:

    Because I loved learning about history, it was great to learn and re-learn all the important events of history. The class is not as face-paced as a student might think just because it's an AP class, but it depends on how quickly you absorb the knowledge. Another great aspect of this class are the group projects, ranging from simple art projects and diagram creations, and these are all done in class. The teacher provides many resources for the students so he/she will be able to understand the material at his/her own pace.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    AP US History is not an easy class, solely because there is a lot of paperwork and material that you have to remember and learn: there are political, economical, social, and geographical aspects in history that are covered in this course in multiple time periods. Because of this, I would highly advise any future student to study days or weeks before a certain topic(s) is tested in class, and also Quizlet is a great resource in memorizing terms a student needs to know. Not only will you achieve a desired score but you will build your memorization skills and prevent cramming too many lessons in a short amount of time.
