    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you like history, you will definitely do well in this course! It covers everything from the Civil War to the Vietnam War and makes students dig deep into the course and draw conclusions about things that they learned in the course. Students will do DBQ's, Long Essays, Unit Tests, and Reading Quizzes.

    Course highlights:

    From taking this course, I learned how to really write better and not just retell what happened in events, but to analyze what occurred and draw conclusions from it. Also, the reading quizzes are a great booster. For them, as long as you take good notes, you will do well on the quiz, thus, raising your grade.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Procrastination is not an option for this course. For tests, you really need to know the material. You can't just study the night before and expect to get a good grade on the test. In this course, you aren't just tested based on memory, you are tested based on how much you understand the material enough to analyze it. Also, good note taking is key because not only will it help you prepare for the tests, but for reading quizzes that are open note, it will help you excel on them. Notes are usually ranged from 30-60 pages, so it is best to pace yourself when taking notes.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it gives an in depth explanation of our country's history. It goes much more in depth than Honors US 1 and it goes into more current information as well. Some of your relatives might even have relatives who lived through areas of history that you studied.

    Course highlights:

    One of my favorite parts of this course was that I was able to learn in depth about areas of history that I had only heard about before. I learned to look objectively at events and analyze documents. (You will need to do this for your DBQ's)

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    DO YOUR NOTES! Going online to get your notes might get you a good grade for notes (if you don't get caught) but you won't understand the information as well as you would have otherwise.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Many believe that learning history, especially that of America, is "useless" and will not be useful in the future. However, that is far from the truth. Learning about American History, especially with this course, will not only change one's whole perspective on the nation but will also change the way one thinks, whether it be about current issues or simple everyday choices. This class is a definite challenge, but it is worth it.

    Course highlights:

    I was able to not only learn about events that affected America as well as other countries and it is not simply recollection. It is analyzing the choices made all throughout history leading us to the present.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Put all the effort you have into the work, take no shortcut. That's the only way you will be able to get results and it will make all the difference.
