    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    AP European History is a subject that introduces you to the world by teaching what shaped society to be this way and all the highlights of Western civilization. The people, events, and cultures you learn about in this course are fascinating. This is not a boring class where you are just bombarded by countless dates and obnoxious titles. In fact, even the textbook for this class is filled with jokes and complex stories, if you only take time to read. The class itself was not overly hard but instead, there were hands-on projects for every unit that challenged you in creative ways. I had to direct and edit video skits, record songs, bake cakes, and a lot more. This was one of the best classes of my high school experience.

    Course highlights:

    The Renaissance was by far the biggest highlight of this course. We learned about so many incredible people and dissected their artwork and philosophical musings. Just the mindset of this era is what made it so interesting to learn about as it was such a shift from the mindset of eras before and even currently. The Scientific Revolution was also a highlight of this course. Visualizing the transition between the two eras was very interesting.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the textbook. A lot of students complained the tests were impossibly hard but never bothered doing more than skimming the textbook, if even that. The answers are all literally found right in the textbook and the textbook is actually interesting to read. It connects events and ideas in a way that will make you understand the subject on a deeper level.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course if you are willing to thoroughly study outside of class and take notes.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about multiple things from each time period. For example, I now know some information about philosophers and rulers, the revolutions and wars, and important contributions that make the world that we know today.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to be constantly motivated because this class is really overwhelming. Studying and taking notes is another major tip that will help you in this class as the information can be confusing and plentiful.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because it is a great experience to see how other countries developed and came into the state that they were in through war, hardships, and levels of imperialism. As well as it helps introduce students into the US History class because they have an idea of how other countries operated and handled the situations that they were faced.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were not only reading about the situations in the world, but watching some of the older, documented films and witnessing the way the countries solved those problems. In that class, there was tons of hands on projects which helps the student think outside the normal boundaries of the textbook. Which exposed the student to different solutions of the problem at task.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would suggest learning to manage how much the student studies. This class is very note and textbook oriented, therefore, there will be a lot of note taking and studying. Studying is how they will pass the tests and quizzes because that is how the teacher teaches and relies on. Management of study time will help the student balance the work and a social life.
