    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this class because it is a class that prepared me for my future better than any other class that I will probably ever take in high school. I'll admit that at the beginning, I didn't even think I would make it to thanksgiving but once you adjust and fall into the pattern of the class, you'll become more comfortable and have a better idea of what to expect. Good luck future apush students. You'll do fine. Just do your best.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of this class were the feeling of passing quizzes, gaining extra credit for answering questions, building study groups at lunch and outside of school, learning from my mistakes, the free time after the AP exam. One of the two biggest accomplishments for me in the class was that feeling when we were in the classroom where we took the AP exam and we were just about finished. We were all making our finishing touches on our essays, reading over them for mistakes, or counting down the last seconds of apush. I took 4 APs and none of them gave me the same amount of relief that finishing that APUSH exam did. The other biggest accomplishment was receiving the scores back in July. When I saw that 5 for APUSH, I literally screamed and just smiled like an idiot. I got 4s on the other exams but they all paled in comparison to that 5. It wouldn't have even mattered in I have gotten another 5 because APUSH was THAT class that I wanted to do extremely well on the exam. As far as what I learned in the class, I learned about history of course, but why things happened and what provoked certain events. I learned how to write effective and well-written papers, how to make connections between events, time management, build relationships, and a list of other things.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    This class requires a lot of reading and writing, but it also requires a lot of making connections and understanding why this matters. Plenty of opportunities for extra credit and an insightful experience. Don't let the AP in front of US History make you afraid. You'll be fine. Make study groups, read ahead if you can, make connections, ask questions, answer questions, stay after school. Do whatever helps you get a passing grade in the class, within reason of course. P. S. I got a 5 on the AP test so I kind of know what I'm taking about. And if you get a 3, 4, or 5 on the AP exam, Mr. M will write you a letter or recommendation for college.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Who should and shouldn't take apush depends on if you don't mind reading, writing, thinking, connecting, and put everything all together.

    Course highlights:

    I learned what a college class would be like at a similar level. I got a feel of what the course load would be and the time that it had to be done within. I received a taste of how much work and effort you actually have to put into the class. It was worth it. At first I hated it, but in the long run, I will be more prepared in the future for anything that may come my way.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You definitely need to read the book. You don't necessarily have to memorize everything but you need to know how thing connect and ehy they matter. Buy a review book early in the year so that you won't be rushing to read through it right before exams. Study constantly. Every now and then look over the previous or every go a little ahead into the next unit. If you have free time, it wouldn't be a bad idea to get ahead in the class if you're all caught up. Don't be afraid to ask questions if you don't understand something, especially if it's important for you to know.
