    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Most students who succeed in this class have a passionate love for history. If you have no real understanding of history from previous classes it will be much harder than someone who does meaning you will have to study more. This course goes quickly through a vast amount of material and you are taught through power points and lectures about history. This class focuses on specific in depth points in United States History. There are fun projects that help you understand some eras such as the "1920s Project" that is a lot of fun. When lectures are given be sure to be awake and pay close attention as most questions (if not all questions) for the six tests given will be in the lectures. Be sure to take notes to study for the time leading up to the test. You have to pay close attention to important details as the teacher tends to ramble off topic often. There is a lot of writing in AP US History. There are writing portions on every test and you have a timed writing test the day before a multiple choice test. Also you have a in depth book analysis at the end of each quarter. If you focus, take notes, and study this class will be much easier no matter the about of pre knowledge you had leading into the class.

    Course highlights:

    The projects are a highlight of the course and involve you having to actively research time periods creating a solid understanding of an era.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Anyone who goes into this course needs to be prepared for daily lectures. Notes should be taken on everything and no detail should be left out because anything could be on the test. If you create your own questions from the notes it will help you remember the information when studying. Study daily and do your homework but most of the questions on the homework won't be as vital to understanding as the information on the power points given.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course because it goes in depth on important major topics but we also do not focus too long on the smaller topics. You get a good understanding on everything that has happened within the United States.

    Course highlights:

    Ms. Shaw is an amazing teacher. She lectures because it is a college level course but she doesn't make it boring and she also asks questions. I enjoyed that everyday we watched a Crash Course video on YouTube on whatever topic we addressed that day.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you study a lot! The tests are hard and you really need to know the material to succeed in this class.
