Always Do the Reading
Lots of Writing
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Well, it is a required course. However, besides learning about interesting things like various wars (Vietnam War, Cold War, Korean War) there are frequent debates that break out almost every class period, which are always fun to participate in.
Through the many debates and stories that happened in class we learned more about our classmates and our teacher, while also becoming more open minded to other people's opinions. We learned about Jim Crow Laws and Black Codes, Spanish-American War, the Annexation of Hawaii and Alaska, the influence of the press and propaganda (even today), the several attempts to have an organization with several other contries to prevent wars, and the many wars that happened despite the organizations.

Advice for students:
Write down a lot if things for your terms. Make it easier on yourself even, and just use your notes as your terms, NOBODY CARES IF YOU DO (just keep your copy of the powerpoint when you turn in terms). Go over the minimum for terms and So Whats, go to tutoring after school, ask questions (even just write them down on your terms (they will find answers for you), and pay attention while going over the powerpoint. Also, when writing So Whats: 1. What it is. 2. Why it was important then. And 3. Why it is important now (enough to be taught in a history class decades later).
