    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because even though it is a lot of work, it has helped develop amazing time management skills and has helped me increase my critical thinking abilities.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the American Revolution and the expansion of America and its territories. The highlight of this course was when we learned about World War II.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice to give to students who take this course is do the readings and take the notes. It will definitely help on the tests and the AP Exam.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for those who have a strong interest in history, as it covers American history from 1491 to the present day. AP US History goes much more in depth than the on-level classes here, however, the course work is heavy especially to those taking an AP class for the first time. They might have changed it this year, but during the 2015-2016 school year, we had a quiz almost every class over reading in AMSCO.

    Course highlights:

    One of the highlights of this course was that we covered American history that was previously not addressed or barely talked about. For example, we learned of different civil rights groups, such as the gay liberation movement and the Chicano movement. We also discussed the dark parts of American history, such as the massacre of Wounded Knee and the Tulsa race riot.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I don't know if it might have changed this year, but Richardson gave out many writing assignments with the reading we had to do next class. Whenever we did a group writing assignment, I ended up doing most of the work. Be sure to do them regardless, as they can add up if you don't do any of them. Also, be sure to do the reading; if you don't, it's going to be difficult to do the SAQ's on the quizzes.

    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.
