Lots of Writing
Many Small Assignments
This class was tough.
Mrs. Santagata is probably the best teacher I have ever had. She takes time to make sure we understand every part of the AP Test (Lang and APUSH), while not making it a test prep class. After the course, if you do the required work (which yes, is a lot), you will have a full understanding of US History, writing cognitive essays, using rhetorical strategies, and much more. I couldn't recommend this course more.
I gained a work ethic and time management in this course. I have always been good at managing school work, but this course showed me that AP is not a joke. You have to have discipline in this class, especially if you have multiple extracurriculars like I did. Something I really enjoyed about the class was that we got through all the material thoroughly but we still had time to have class discussions about the books we were reading and patterns in history, as well as current events.

Advice for students:
You need to go into this course with the mindset that you will have to work hard. There is a ton of work, but you have to remember that this is two courses in one. It will get tiring but I promise with dedication you can get a good grade. DO NOT SLACK OFF!
