Always Do the Reading
Lots of Writing
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would highly recommend this course as it exposes you to the overall history of the United States, and not just the basic concepts of the American Revolution and other major wars. It teaches you the deep comprehension of concepts and the experience of ordinary individuals during these major historical events as well as the perceptions of all types of people, without any bias.
The highlights of this course consists of doing a music video project alongside fellow classmates on the Harlem Renaissance and other major events that shaped the Civil Rights Movement. Also, one of my favorite experiences, was doing a debate with the class, on whether the National Bank was a great idea or not, or if it just sprouted corruption. I learned that the hands-on experience in a class is better than just reading something out a textbook or lecture.

Advice for students:
I would tell the students to always remain focused and always read the textbook concepts, in order to actively participate in class and obtain higher grades for one's class participation. Also, I would like to advice students to write chapter notes for the overall preparation for the AP Test. Therefore, when the time comes to study, then one could just refer back to old notes and study that, instead of trying to read over all of the chapters again. Also, it is optimal if one creates a study group with students to help each other with anything, along the way for the AP Test. In addition, students could also create study sessions for the AP test with the teacher and have students study multiple choice questions and AP questions, to get the 5 that we always want!
