    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's provides you with the necessary knowledge to efficiently partake in discussion about U.S. History. It as a class, is a truly indispensable one. I wouldn't trade it for the alternative class in a heartbeat. The instructor was also incredible, and generally helpful with any questions or concerns you raised with the course work.

    Course highlights:

    Definitely the WW1 unit. She taught it in such a way that it felt like we were actually there. It really gave us good insight into the nature of trench warfare and foreign affairs. We were also given numerous opportunities to participate in truly interactive activities with fellow peers, which was an incredible fashion to teach a course in.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Prepare for tests at least 2 days in advance. There is so much content on these tests, but in hindsight, it is not my primary concern. Students generally underestimate the class and often forget about the tests she, more often than not, puts little emphasis on. These tests ultimately decided about 50% of your grade, so when a student comes into class and is told of the test minutes in advance by a classmate, they are generally screwing their grades.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I have learned the most important things there are to know of American history in this class. Not just myself, but my classmates have also learned a huge amount from this rigorous course. We have not only learned important information of our country's history, but we have also obtained thorough and life-long skills. Through very difficult research papers, essays, Document-Based Questions, and presentations, I have learned how to be prepared, organized, and how to properly present and write an essay. Before taking the course, I wish I was more organized and responsible. I say this because this AP course is to prepare you for college and is college credit. In order to be successful in this class from the start, you must be able to manage your time very well and keep on track of each and every assignment. Also, always remember to read the chapters your teacher assigns you to read! This course is focused very strongly on comparing many different events in history to each other.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were all of the assigned projects and presentations. I say this because you really learned how to apply your knowledge of each historical event to your presentations, and you must really know the events. Through very difficult research papers, essays, Document-Based Questions, and presentations, I have learned how to be prepared, organized, and how to properly present and write an essay.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it was challenging but not too hard. I think the teacher was knowledgeable in the material and taught the course well. I think this class helped me to develop good study strategies and prepared me well for the AP test. I also think the teacher did a good job in sharing his love for history with his students. Even students who don't normally like history will enjoy this class.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the group projects. They allowed me to get experience working with others and develop communication skills. I learned about American history starting from before Columbus discovered America all the way to present times. I really enjoyed the reading we did for this class. There are many historically significant books that are required reading for the course. MY favorite book that we read was The Jungle by Upton Sinclair.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this course you need to read the textbook. All the information you need to know is in the textbook. If you don't read the text book and take good notes you wont do well in the class. Also, the tests cover a lot of information so to do well on the you need to start studying a week in advance. It is also very helpful if you listen carefully during lectures. The teacher shares a lot of important information during them that is difficult to pick up from the book. You also need to follow his strategy for preparing for the AP test.
