    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I think this is a good course to take junior year because Mrs. Lamanteer helps one to continue developing one's writing skills; this includes thesis and argument development, details, synthesis, and other elements which may add depth to the argument. This is a great AP class to start with and take early on in one's high school career.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how introducing different arguments and then rebutting them in my paper strengthened my argument. For instance, if I argued Woodrow Wilson was a better president than Andrew Jackson, I could explain Andrew Jackson gained public support because he was a commoner, but then I could say this further drove a wedge between social classes and unity in politics, as he favored commoners.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely review regularly. Practice public speaking skills, as there are many debates and presentations. If struggling, ask plenty of questions. The material is not hard to grasp, as the main challenge in this course is approving written and oral communication skills.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course because it explores World History from 8000 B.C., at the beginning of civilization and the Agricultural Revolution, whereas the Honors and CP classes began after 1500 C.E.. In AP World, we learned by time progression, covering different countries at once and their relationships, while the other classes learned according to different regions at different times. At the beginning of the course, I was dreading the rest of the year because I didn't believe I liked World History, but I absolutely loved the class and because of it, I decided to pursue a major in International Relations.

    Course highlights:

    One of the most important skills I took away from this class was strong public speaking. Before AP World History, I was a decently strong communicator, but Mrs. Witte taught me to avoid using crutch words, condense my speeches, and quell my nerves by proving it is okay to pause when speaking. I left the class feeling extremely confident about my public speaking skills.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Like any AP class, make sure to put one's best foot forward; this course requires much focus and strict discipline in regular reading of the textbook. One may think one does not need to read the textbook to succeed, but actually reading the textbook when one is required makes a huge difference in test results and acquired knowledge.
