    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.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it has been very engaging. Classroom activities are never just notes, we also do group or partner activities, and projects to reinforce our understanding.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of the course has been the socratic seminars, where we research people from history and then act as those characters in key historical debates. Such as, the agreements made in the Treaty of Versailles. I have learned so much about imperialism in the United States, as well as the birth of South American countries too. I found learning about Fidel Castro to be one of the most interesting topics.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Extensive notes on what the teacher is saying and emphasizing is more helpful when studying than just having notes from the power point. Listening to what the teacher emphasizes is important!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    In this course, us students are taught in a fast paced note based course that challenges us greatly. We also have activities and fun work weaved between these notes so we better understand the curriculum. Not only do we learn many different topics, we also analyze these topics like true historians! I would definitely recommend this class.

    Course highlights:

    Through this course, we analyze the short term and long term causes of WWI, the outcome of the war and it's effects on the world, and the same for WWII and the Cold War. Different forms of governments, their leaders and their history is highlighted in this course. It gives you a global point of view.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise to not take notes on exactly what is on the power point, but more for what the teacher says. Make sure to pay attention to dates, leaders, and battles. When studying, I would make sure to study the activities, the notes, and the power points. Getting behind on homework is the worst thing you could do in this class because there is a lot of homework. Stay on top of your work!
