    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Although this is one of the toughest courses you can take at Watauga High, It is well worth your time. This course truly prepares for college, by providing with work load and a teaching style that mimics that of an actual College course. Also this class takes you beyond basic US history and dives deeper into the story of America by providing with an exceptional amount of knowledge that help you understand the rich history of this nation.

    Course highlights:

    This class takes you beyond basic US history and dives deeper into the story of America by providing with an exceptional amount of knowledge that helps you understand the rich history of this nation. There were so many events and occurrences that helped in defining the US and our beliefs that I had never even learned about in other basic US history courses. But I now have a strong understanding of our nation and how we came to be the country we are today.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You definitely need to take a lot of notes, and pay attention in class. And in order to really grasp the material, I recommend making note cards from your notes and studying them each night in order to keep thing straight and be fully prepared on test days.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it allows the student to gain an abundance of cultural awareness. Learning the details of a country's government and political system creates more understanding of its people and culture.

    Course highlights:

    The teacher I had for this course was Mr. Jones. He created a fun environment where learning was a privilege instead of a chore. I learned the history, the importance, the government, and the political system of six different countries: Great Britain, Russia, China, Mexico, Nigeria, and Iran. In the course, each of these countries represent different types of regimes and governments. Comparing them opened my eyes to the fact that there is no right way a country has to be ruled. Different types of governing works for different countries.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Most of the information you learn in this course is current, so there are not many textbooks that teachers require you to read. When they do assign reading whether it be from a debriefing paper or a news article, read it! It will help your understanding of the country, and it will improve your AP test score tremendously!
