    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Being my first advanced placement class, it was certainly a difficult class to get into, and a difficult class all around. If you are dedicated enough to take a high-level, fast-paced class, I would highly recommend it. However, a reason why I wouldn't recommend it is just how fast-paced it is, after all we would cover a new time period almost every single week, and there is so much to learn in such a short amount of, some of which may or may not be on the test, that it is a highly difficult class.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the highlights include the teacher, as well as the subject at hand. Mr. Almes was a fantastic teacher, and from him I was able to enjoy my APUSH experience as much as one may be able to. There were also many instances in which I, or other students, were able to go down to work with him, as he has always made time for his AP students to help and understand what we learn. The subject itself is something I, as well as my fellow classmates, were personally interested in, and the way Mr. Almes taught the class made it so much easier to remember things, as well as to get into otherwise uninteresting time periods and aspects of history. The class focused heavily on WWI and WWII, as the test often has heavy focus on these points in history, while focusing very little on the Revolutionary Era, requiring one to have prior knowledge. Chapter summaries were written every week from the AP text book and required to turn in that day.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not slack off. This class, especially (often) being one of the first AP classes offered to students, is not a simple one, and has prepared me well for the current AP classes I take. The class requires a lot of hard work and dedication, as well as time to work on the weekends and after school. It is often a good idea to go to the teacher after class, or ask him to clarify during class - this is especially helpful because of how fast-paced the class is. If one were to miss out on asking a question, he or she may never get it answered because, by the end of the week, the class has already gone through another time period.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mr Beard is so full of information. He will answer any questions you have and though his teaching style isnt for everyone he will help you any way he can

    Course highlights:

    MOCK COURT. You get to take real court cases and debates and act them out as if it was the real deal.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not slack off on taking the notes. There are a lot but they are very very important to pass the class
