    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you really love history than it's great. Unfortunately I went in thinking history was great but came out hating all things related to history.

    Course highlights:

    It was mainly all memorization of dates and names, so not too interesting to me.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You really need to enjoy history or have a lot of time to devote to studying for it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I really did enjoy this class. I had always been interested in United States History, ever since I learned about it as a freshman. While there is a decent amount of work that has to be put into this class, if you actually do the work, and study for the tests, it really is not that bad. I think it definitely is one of the most interesting AP classes offered, and it's cool because you're learning about things that actually happened in our own country, things that may have actually impacted us, and the way that we do things now. I think all of the teachers that teach this course are all very knowledgable about every topic that is taught. They all do a very good job of offering further explanations, and help if needed. I never felt as though I was asking a stupid question.

    Course highlights:

    Although most people did not enjoy it, I really enjoyed working on my National History Day project. I thought it was very interesting that we had a large variety of topics to choose from, and we got to learn so in depth about that topic. Personally, I thought that some of the most interesting topics that we learned in this course were the 1950's, WW2, the Civil War, Vietnam War, and other more current topics. I also really enjoyed learning about the different president's and the impacts that they had on things today.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I think the most important thing is to take detailed, thorough notes. Usually, we were assigned n outline the night before, and if you read and took notes on the outline, you would be fine for class the next day. The next most important thing is to pay attention in class, and make sure you add to your notes from the night before. There would be sometimes where the teacher would explain something that I didn't have in my notes, but would end up being on the test. Another thing is pay attention to key players, places, and other important events such as laws, and acts. Probably the most important thing is to not be afraid to ask for help!!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    The highlights were I became a better student and was able to expand my skills in research and writing. It also taught me how to become a faster and more efficient reader.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always do the read and take notes, and if you want to do well on the tests always ask questions when you get lost.
