    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Learning an unbiased view of American history (both the good, the bad, and the downright ugly) is beneficial towards making informed opinions and decisions in relation to modern day America and American politics. Not to mention that this class is, while tough, a great way to exercise critical thinking skills, and study habits.

    Course highlights:

    The best part of this course was having an opportunity to discuss and challenge pre-existing beliefs of America. I learned of different movements, bills, regulations, etc. that is still relevant towards what is going on in the country today. This course is about debate, and learning that our country is not perfect. This course is also rooted in facts, not sugarcoated to make people feel better (which is definitely a highlight for me). It also teaches you to look at past events in historical context rather than through modern day lenses.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the books that are given out, and don't slack off on any sort of flashcards or study-guides. When the AP exam comes around, these will be your lifeboat. Participate in discussions, it'll be a great way to really digest the history. Turn in assignments on time and make sure that you've covered everything (the worst thing is to realize five minutes before class that you forgot to do one part of the assignment). Most importantly, get sleep. In the long run, your health is much more important than a grade.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't procrastinate. Do as many of the assignments as you can the day they are due. Don't be afraid to ask questions!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it teaches the past, present, and future. The course will help students think critically about how the past can affect the future, eventually affecting the present. Linking the past to the future is an important skill because it can help individuals determine what may or may not happen.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to think critically and debate about the past, present, and future. Like all History classes, these three are the basics of what they teach. But going into American History seems more entertaining than something like European History (talk about bias) and would be a great course to take for students wanting to take any Social Studies courses but also want a kick of entertainment time-after-time.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    This class is mind-opening if you take the time to study, it's best to not be intimidated by the expansive information but to take in APUSH little-by-little and you'll be all set for the course!
