    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This AP course focuses on learning about the American history from before its independence to the present. With highly rich discussion and great writing practice this class inspired me to learn more about history.

    Course highlights:

    My highlight of this course was the 20 page research paper that I had to do. Although it doesn't sound exciting I had the ability to choose my own topic: The CIA's Effect on Latin American Countries. This reasearch paper taught me a myriad of things, from managing my time, doing extensive research, and dividing my topics into smaller more specific subsections.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to plan out your homework so it doesn't pile up on you. Procrastinating will be your worst enemy in this class, especially for the long research paper.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It's a fun class that allows you to expand your knowledge on American history, without learning just to pass the test.

    Course highlights:

    I was able to learn a lot about more recent history like the Vietnam War and the Korean War which I found immensely interesting.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I recommend studying hard for tests in advance, as well as starting homework early if you have the time. This way you don't get too stressed out about the workload.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because of its in depth analysis of the United States as a whole. Other classes focus on a particular aspect of US history such as economy, but AP US is a good introduction to general knowledge of the United States that is vital to understanding the connections in the history.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a new hate and love for America. In APUSH I learned about significant events, people, developments, and processes that shaped America throughout history. Throughout the course my teacher used gallery walks as a way to make us come up with historical comparisons, change and continuity throughout the period, and historical arguments. There were also multiple recurring themes throughout history that we employed throughout the course year to help us make historical connections between one period of time and another. Some recurring themes included; politics and power use; nationalism; settlement and migration; technology; and trade. It was interesting to learn from the start to present day how America got all its land. It was beautiful to watch the country grow as I went from start to finish in the course. I learned that history is always repeating itself, especially within the government.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    My biggest advice would be to do the homework. Ms. Hale always gives reading guides, which I thought were tedious in the beginning but later realized how helpful they had been. By doing the reading guides I was able to condense the lengthy textbook into smaller sub sections, then analyze and answer questions about the text; instead of just reading and answering questions. I would also say to pay attention and notice the connections in history and the changes and continuities. Always take a step back from what you're doing to notice how this is similar to another aspect of US history.
