    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I'm a social studies person, but I don't think I've ever gotten more out of a social studies class than I did this one. While the course itself was only supposed to cover essentially 'the name of things' such as explaining what a cultural shatterbelt was, our teacher went above and beyond to give us historical and contemporary examples that we then compiled into a rudimentary history of the world in addition to covering all of the necessary topics to ace the AP exam.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of the course was our capstone video project. We had to choose a topic, any topic that interested us, and then connect that topic to the forms of government, religion, education, economics, or family that we had learned about during the course of the year. The freedom in choosing the project meant that everyone got a chance to study something that genuinely interested them.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    When the teacher says you have to read something, you absolutely have to read it. Every single test included at least one question on the reading, and sometimes, half the test would be about the reading. It varied, and was hard to predict, so absolutely do the reading all the time.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend this course to anybody who is not absolutely intrigued by our presidents foreign policies and well educated on the United States relationships with the middle east, North Korea, Cuba and many more areas. When in this class he expects a lot from you and will test you on everything he has taught with open ended questions. Also, if you are not good with speaking out during classes and asking questions or stating opinions this is a hard class to do well in because a quarter of your grade is dependent on class participation.

    Course highlights:

    Mr. Lyons is a very fun, sarcastic, passionate teacher. Throughout this course we do six debates with current foreign policy issues and we make up "operations" to back up which side of the debate we choose. Along with the debates, Mr. Lyons created a simulation game where a group of three is assigned a country with a budget and the goal is to be the last man standing, taking out all of the other countries. Not only do you do fun activities within his course we also write a short 'essay' with every chapter but he encourages you to be sarcastic and looks for humor in your writing to make the homework fun. Lastly, he is always open to help and answer questions when needed

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you decide to take this course, make sure you are interested in the United States foreign policy and are decently educated before entering the class. Also, ALWAYS attend class because his power points do not explain in detail everything you have to know he usually just says it in class and has a basic understanding of the event being explained on the board. Along with attending class, be sure to study (make flashcards) for all of his tests before the night before because it is a lot of information to recite on the test because he does NOT give multiple choice question tests. Also, make sure you study the specifics of each event/ map because he does not give full credit unless you know numbers, which president was involved, etc.
