    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is a challenge that will prepare you for anything people throw at you down the road. This forces you to think and keep caught up. Falling behind is not a thing you want to do in this class. I have learned so much just from this one year.

    Course highlights:

    Learning about The Cold War was a highlight of this course because, before this, I had no idea how The Cold War started or ended. I didn't understand how this war was fought if US and USSR never fought each other directly. This taught me the different ways a war could be waged and as well as why the USSR fell.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Even if the assignment is late, do it anyway. There is no busy work in this class. Everything is for a purpose. Writing this class off won't get your diploma. You have to work hard in order to get good results. I would also recommend doing the lengthy work a little at a time. Doing it all at once is not good for your health.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course grants so many opportunities to truly learn and understand the curriculum if you apply yourself to every assignment. It is easy to get through the course without thoroughly learning the information, which is why it is so important to try your best to understand and memorize the material if you hope to do well on the AP exam.

    Course highlights:

    While it is difficult to remember every detail of United States history, I learned major events and characteristics of each decade and era that helped me to understand how the United States was shaped leading up to the present day. This course deepened my understanding about why our country is where it is today.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My most important piece of advice for this course would be to write out each chapter study guide and use colored pens to emphasize the most important and secondly important information for each chapter. This not only helps to remember the material but also serves as a study guide to refer to in the future.
