    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Class was very engaging and interesting. Mr. Cannon always had a different way of keeping the class entertained while staying on pace with the course load.

    Course highlights:

    The best part of the year comes right at the start with the road to the revolution debate. Also don't be afraid of taking this course if you don't think you are a great reader or writer or if you are scared of the "massive amounts of work". It really is not that bad and it seriously improves reading and writing skills for your all important SAT test.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Use online videos, they summarize it better than the book. Also really focus on one pagers and do your best to keep up on notes, especially at the end of the year when you want to give up (I DID).

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to anyone who is very interested in history and is willing to put in a lot of work. I did not really enjoy this course as much as I could have, because while I enjoy learning about history, I felt as though the amount of work given by my teacher was too much for me to enjoy the course. In addition, I feel as though the course is very fast paced and is too much to fit into two high school semesters. Overall, I would recommend this course if it is the only AP course a student plans on taking in that academic year.

    Course highlights:

    This course covers the entirety of United States History, so there was always something new to learn every class. My favorite unit was on the Gilded Age, because it was a very good parallel to today's society. In addition to learning about history, I also learned a lot about time management, because the course load for AP US History was very intense and required a lot of time to complete. Finally, I also learned how to analyze complex texts in a more efficient way, because I read and interpreted a lot of historical texts.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    My main piece of advice for APUSH would be to constantly review previous material. History builds on itself, and the AP exam covers all of US history, so it is in your best interest to consistently review previous learned material. It will help you to make connections between eras and find patters and parallels in history.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I thoroughly enjoyed this course and would highly recommend it. It is one class where you get out exactly what you put in. It is a lot of work, but well worth it.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the most from the quarterly projects. They took a lot of time and effort, but that is the information I retained the best.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Do all of the work. Taking the notes but seem pointless, but it is worth it in the end when you are studying for the AP exam. Don't be afraid to ask questions.
