    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    As a college class, this one makes all other history classes seem easy. I won't lie, there is a lot of information in a short amount of time. Taking this class let you learn pretty much anything you would want to know about America's history. If you love history, I would definitely recommend this class. If you don't, I would take it anyway because it would be much better to get the credit in high school instead of college. I learned how to take notes well from this course, and I think it will help me in the long run.

    Course highlights:

    I particularly enjoyed the projects we had to do, but the rest of the course did not sugar-coat some of the things that happened. The history of slavery and the Native Americans are very important in this course, though I really did like the section about the 1920's. I was able to use some of the stuff I learned from this class for a different history class this year.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You have to read the textbook. I will say this again: You must read the textbook. You will do bad on quizzes if you don't read the textbook. For the test specifically, gather your friends, and try to compile a study guide with all of the questions on the quizzes. Because of this study guide shared with a large part of the grade, I was able to get a perfect score on the final. I did not do so well on the quizzes because I did not read the text book. Do not be me.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it as a dual credit course that counts for high school and college credit. There is some studying involved and it is important to stay on top of your reading assignments, but it is definitely a course worth taking for dual credit.

    Course highlights:

    Through taking this course I learned an extensive amount about American history and how events in our history are happening in other countries. I like history and learning about past events interests me, so this was an enjoyable course to take.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Have good note taking skills. Reading comprehension is also key when we apply things we have read in the textbook, in class. Stay on top of your studying, and doing a little each night will really help in the long run.
