    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Advanced Placement is good; Advanced Placement AND Dual Credit is even better. 1. You don't have to take the AP exam in order to receive college credit. All you have to do, if you don't want to take the exam, is to pass the class, and you'll receive 6 credit hours that are transferable to any college within Texas and some outside. 2. The class gives you a good feel of how college will be. You'll definitely have more responsibility, and you're required to take charge of your material, and it might be hard at first but it gets easier as time goes by. 3. It's just worth it. You don't learn JUST American History. You go in deeper into the context and by the end of the year you're a changed person, more knowledgeable and more certain of what you can do. Plus: you now have 6 college credit hours.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course wasn't just the material, it was also the teacher. If your teacher is boring, you learn nothing because you don't want to learn anything. You're not challenged. The AP/DC US History teacher at Falls (and the regular APUSH teacher) is not only entertaining, they actually care about your grade. They push you, and there are so many opportunities to pass the class that there is no reason to fail -- unless you're not doing your work. I learned not just about the US, but also life. You become politically aware and politically smarter. Yes, it's mostly note-taking, but that's what college is, anyway.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    1. Print out the notes. 2. Have colorful highlighters. 3. Learn to write fast. And I mean fast. 4. Read up on US History before you start the course. 5. Have a study group. School-wide study sessions are available after every unit, but it's also good to have a group of friends that you can trust with if you miss a day or just need help in general. 6. Be willing and ready to participate. It's a grade. 7. Make some friends. AP/DCUSH is teamwork; you cannot and will not succeed by yourself. 8. Have a planner so you don't miss study session days, test days, online quiz days, etc. 9. Come ready to learn. You might think it's hard now, but it gets easier later on. 10. If at any point you feel that you can't handle the workload anymore, don't hesitate to drop. If you're in an AP class and you're making a D, that doesn't look as good as being in an Honors class where you're making an A. Know your limit, and don't push yourself to the point of destruction.
