    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a great class for those who want to challenge themselves! This class is not as easy as AP European history; you have to work hard and always read the textbook and take notes in order to pass this class. Other than that, this is a very fun class. Mr. Jacobs is a very humorous​ guy.

    Course highlights:

    Like most AP classes, AP US history requires you to read the textbook in order to learn the material. Mr. Jacobs doesn't teach everything that is on the test; we had many discussions in that class.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    READ THE TEXTBOOK! You can also watch YouTube videos; the channel Joczproductions has reviews of each chapter of the AP US textbook. The review books are also very helpful.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher is exceptional. He explains every concept concisely and vividly. The tests are challenging but will help in the long run. I learned more about US history in one year than in all the 11 years I've been learning the subject. This course focused on connecting different pieces of history and figuring out a trend in human tendencies. Memorization, as was vital in past history classes, is not the main skill needed. Your analytical skills are strengthened and put to the test in this course.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was learning not only what had happened on a certain date but why it happened. I learned a multitude of things about humankind and where our desires lie. Many wars were caused by the same social, political, or economic factors and it was so fascinating to recognize the pattern in human tendencies. As my instructor used to say: "When looking at conflicts of the past, follow the money."

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed, you must pay read the textbook on a daily basis. Class time is limited and a basic knowledge of the material being reviewed in class that day is absolutely 100% vital. You will learn about one perspective through the textbook. You will gain another perspective provided by your instructor.
