    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is extremely relevant to the world we live in today and although it is challenging, it forces students to view events and history from multiple perspectives. This course also gives a thorough and detailed account of United State's history from the colonial era to present day American Politics. APUSH was definitely an eye opener and I have no regrets in taking the class even though it would sometimes be time consuming and difficult. All the information, experiences, and insight I gained outweighed the hardship.

    Course highlights:

    From learning the truth about President George Washington's fake teeth to getting interesting insight about the Kennedy assassination, AP United States history taught me a vast amount of useful information regarding the creation and growth of our country. My teacher pushed us to view history from multiple perspectives and I learned the truth behind a myriad of historical events that paved the way for our nation. I became so immersed in the course that I even traveled to historical places such as Thomas Jefferson's Monticello, Colonial Williamsburg, and the battlefield at Guilford Courthouse. While I gained memorable experiences, I also gained perspective on some of the issues out country has faced. From civil rights to women's rights, APUSH gave a wide range of information regarding society and culture and how it shaped the lives of the people living here. We were taught compassion for those who had to sacrifice so much in order for change and we were also taught the significance of our own voices with respect to our communities and political system. After the class, I truly feel like I have not only a better understanding of our country's history, but a better understanding of our to use what we gained from our history to make change for our future.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My first suggestion would be understand your learning style (whether you are an auditory learner, kinaesthetic learner, or visual learner) because the material is dense and you must figure out the best way you will retain the information. I would also suggest studying with peers because you can ask and answer questions you may or may not have gotten to in class. Lastly, I would try and get as many real world experiences as you can; the best way to learn history is to immerse yourself in the history itself. I found myself benefiting greatly from visiting historical sights and going more in depth into my studies.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    You will learn so much about the wreck of our country in this course. Evans will not lie to you about all the awful things that our founding fathers did and all the terrible things that happened after that. All of my friends who took this class got a 5 on the AP exam and I did to and so will you since he will drill all of APUSH into you head whether you like it or not.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how terrible this county was and why it is so terrible now. It was really awesome yet upsetting to know some of the things that happened but a lot of these things you have to understand to understand America and the other Americans around you. Knowledge you learn will be practical to apply to other courses you take like APES, your language classes, and other history courses even if they don't focus on the US. You will learn how to analyze history from all the perspectives that were there at the time and how to read historical documents.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    You will have to do so much work for this class. I studied my butt off for every test and I assure you you will have to too. Do not sign up if you are not prepared for this. Do not sign up if you mouth off a lot, Evan will not appreciate that and he will end you. Do work even if you do not think it's necessary because it will help you pass the test. READ THE TEXTBOOK. There is some material that he will not be able to cover in class and it is in the textbook.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course if you are willing to put in the work and accept a "B" or lower on a couple tests, then you should be fine. He prepares you very well for the AP exam and the exam should be a breeze.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that a good work ethic will not always get you the grade you want. Humility is key when taking this class. There will be other students in other classes that will be relaxing while you are stressing over the next test, but all of it is worth it in the end. It made me force myself to manage my time better which will be helpful in college. This classes has prepared me for what college will soon be like.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you think you are up for the challenge, then go for it. Do not let anyone tell you you can not do it. Do not get overwhelmed and psych yourself out. This class gives you tough skin to handle any class that will come your way. Do not be afraid to ask your classmates or the teacher for help. Everyone is trying to pass so get help when you need it.
