    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is imperative to the maturing process of high school. It teaches you perseverance, strong study skills, and the importance of failure and how it leads to more rewarding success. Mr. Evans is a phenomenal teacher that is tough, charismatic, and cares about the material.

    Course highlights:

    Aside from learning the thoroughly enriching tale of the American story, the personal anecdotes that Evans shares adds to that narrative. The depth of his knowledge about each topic is so expansive, it is almost impossible to say you have learned it all.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay organized. Don't lose any papers. Constantly go back and review. Realize that when you take one of his tests, unless you've exhausted every resource (textbook, notes, study guide, etc.), there will be questions which you don't know the answer to. Don't give up when that happens, go during lunch and learn the answers, it will strengthen your knowledge.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would say that AP US History should only be taken by people who enjoy history or people who are willing to work hard whether or not they enjoy it. This course focuses on learning the history of the United States from European colonization to modern times and being able to see trends and patterns over time.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course is being able to know history. I learned about significant time periods and the history of groups that I did not know played a large role in United States History, like labor unions. I came out of the class see the broader implications of when events took place or the climate of the United States when looking at written material from another class.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice is to read the textbook, even if the teacher does not require you to, because it is always helpful to get the information again in a different format. My next piece of advice is to go over your notes after each class so that you can refresh yourself on what you learned. I also suggest study groups or at least a study partner because they can clear up confusion or bring to light any information you could have missed.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    While APUSH was an incredibly challenging class, I don't think I've ever learned more in the course of one year. My teacher was very knowledgeable about the subject, and he made sure that we knew overall concepts and small details.

    Course highlights:

    In taking AP US History, I gained an incredible amount of knowledge about US History. My teacher required us to know Amendments 1-26, as well as the order of all the US presidents. We were expected to know broad concepts like the evolution of political parties, which was extrapolated on throughout the year, as well as small details, such as how Aaron Burr married a woman who claimed to have slept with both George Washington and Napoleon Bonaparte.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't just read the notes. Make flashcards, summarize what you don't understand, or meet with your friends to study. It isn't enough to just pay attention and read the notes. You need to actively study and be prepared for a lot of work.
