    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to anyone solely because of the instructor. Going into the class not at all interested in history, my view completely changed because of the knowledge and passion Mr. Scalia had for the subject. From being at school at 5 a.m. to tutor students to having vast and deep knowledge of the subject, Mr. Scalia showed the devotion he has to teaching and also to his students’ success.

    Course highlights:

    I learned immense knowledge about the history of the U.S., but more importantly I learned how to study and handle a college formatted class. It wasn’t the information I learned that was so important to me, but the skills for studying, note-taking, and taking my education into my own hands that will stay with me.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to work. This is a great course that will teach you a lot about how you learn and handle more independent assignments. By not having busy work every night for homework and not being given reviews for tests, you learn to plan ahead for readings and tests, causing you to take your education into your own hands.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Out of all the social studies teachers I have had, I can honestly say that Mrs. Allen has given me the most enthusiasm for learning. I appreciate her for being so dedicated in the classroom, even on days when she wasn't in high spirits, but still spent the effort and time to teach class. Her passion and talent for teaching have transformed my outlook on the world, and given me a better understanding of what it means to live in the United States. I am grateful to her for being so motivated and earnest, even when many students have shown little or no interest in lectures by sleeping, texting, or talking.

    Course highlights:

    Mrs. Allen's love of American history ignited my own curiosity this past year, and made learning much more fun (even though I spent many, many late nights attempting to get through the long readings)! She also taught me to appreciate clarity of mind through intellectual writing form, to never be afraid to ask questions, and how to pay attention to the bigger picture. I look back upon this year as so important in the development of the person that I am today. The things she has taught me will also stick with me my entire life. For example, I will never forget the meaning of the term “laissez faire”, or forget John C. Calhoun’s terrifying portrait that she showed us.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed, you should always start the readings a few days in advance. Never wait till the last minute to study, and always pay attention and take notes in class.
