    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I took AP World History with Ms. Olivares. With an "S." World History in general is very interesting. You learn just about everything there is to know about history from the origin of man to the contemporary period. It never felt like I was learning facts - the history of the world is rich with conspiracies, drama, and humor! Depending on your teacher, the experience will be different. My teacher, specifically, was big on preparing us for the AP Exam, so we did a lot of writing. I believe that helped me to improve as a writer. In general, however, taking a world history course will, in a sense, culture you and give you a broader perspective of the world. You'll know more about why things are the way they are today, be able to respect differences in other societies, and you'll finally be able to get in on all the nerd jokes!

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of World History were obviously the "cool" parts of history. Stuff like the amazing art and intelligence from Ancient Greece, the military genius that was Alexander the Great, matriarchal societies in West Africa, Japanese samurai (don't search 'seppuku'), and the cringe-worthy torture techniques of Medieval Europe (plus the Black Plague - yay!). Not to mention all the cool (sometimes slightly disturbing, honestly) art! It goes without question that I learned about the history of the world. However, I also learned more about myself - my religion, my background, etc. There were some things I learned in World History that rocked the boat I had been peacefully sitting on. The truth is, the world really isn't all sunshine and rainbows; it's a lot darker than we realize, and that goes even for those we believe to be "the good guys." (the government doesn't read this, right?)

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    I am aware my responses for difficulty and hours of work put into the course seem intimidating. Remember that I took AP World History, which obviously demands more from a student. Don't be put off by that! If you're taking this course, you have to do only one thing to succeed - read. There's no way around it. If you really hate reading, this probably isn't the class for you. Again, this depends on what level of world history you take, as well as what your teacher demands of you. I advise you to take it just so you can see some of the **** people did back then, because it's ridiculous, and maybe inspiring. As long as you come to class with an open, interested mind, you should be fine!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course had an amazing teacher who brought me through the paths and challenges of human history.

    Course highlights:

    The explanations and insight into certain events of history made the course almost come to life. It's as if you flew through time and observed the fall of Constantinople yourself!

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Embrace the fact that mankind did not have a simple start.
