    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Although this class is certainly difficult and a shift from middle school / freshman level history courses, it is definitely worth the challenge. It's not about the grade, it's about the learning experience that you gain from taking the course! Mr. Cuneo is one of the best teachers in not only the history department, but in the entire school. He is so passionate about teaching students and about teaching history, and he will definitely make the course much more fun and interesting than just "history".

    Course highlights:

    This course is about the first half of American history, so that includes everything from the Native Americans and colonial life to the Civil War, ending right at the Reconstruction era. Obviously, I learned about the ins and outs of American history, including cultural changes, technological and ideological movements, wars, and so on. In addition, since there's a lot of writing involved in the course, whether it is short answer questions or long essays, my essay writing drastically improved from the very first essay I wrote to the essays I wrote later on. I also developed better analysis and critical thinking skills from analyzing documents.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you read the textbook, you will do well on the multiple choice questions. If you're not great at memorization, I would outline the textbook and read the chapter multiple times (4-5 times if necessary) so that you will retain the information. Essays and writing will get better with practice, but they require a combination of analysis and retaining information. Mr. Cuneo is very approachable, so if you are having trouble with essay writing or do not understand some questions, just go in for extra help!
