    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    EXTREMELY rewarding. Entertaining, engaging, intensive, and interesting.

    Course highlights:

    History can be really funny (i.e. the Thirty Years' War basically started because some guy got pushed out a window and fell into manure and there was a French dude that was so obsessed with tall soldiers that he would have them parade through his bedchambers). This course also taught me how to study, so that's a plus. We did a lot of interactive learning type things, so I learned how to better operate in a group.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the timelines as you read the chapters--I cannot stress that enough. Team up with people and divvy up work when you can. Stay on top of the work load. Always be prepared for class. Get into it as much as possible.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    EXTREMELY rewarding, interactive, engaging, and intense. I've never been so proud of myself, more into a subject, or had more fun in a class.

    Course highlights:

    History can be really funny (i.e. the Thirty Years' War essentially started because some guy pushed another guy out a window and he landed in manure and there was this French ruler (whose name escapes me) that had an obsession with tall soldiers and he'd have them parade through his bedroom). We also did a lot of simulations, which is a great way to dive into the course material and the form bonds with the enter class.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the timelines as you read the chapter--I cannot stress that enough. Always be prepared for class and approach everything you read critically.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course was a fantastic exercise in the mind. It stretched and made me truly think about just what so many concepts in our modern day society mean. In Euro, I learned all about the creation of various political parties as well as how different art forms evolved as a result of the political environment. Learning about these monumental figures such as Napoleon Bonaparte, Elizabeth I, and Bismarck taught me about a new canon of historical figures different from our United States favorites such as George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. AP Euro had me questioning the world I live in and the values western society commands, and for this I would highly recommend it to any prospective student who has always been fascinated by the land across the sea.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a new understanding of the world around me. I learned about the world around me as well as the origins of everything around me. I especially enjoyed learning about the French Revolution. The concept of revolution-gone-wrong has always intrigued me. We participated in a trial where we had to defend or prosecute Robespierre as whether or not he stuck to the ideals of the revolution. Beyond the French Revolution, I greatly enjoyed learning about the British Empire and how at one point it was the strongest force in the entire world. The mindsets and psychology of these European rulers seemed to leap off the page for me. I loved analyzing their characters and the decisions that they made along with the ones I would've made had I been in their place. In this way, I suppose I even learned more about myself.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would just advise students who want to take this course to know that they are getting themselves into an experience. Preparing for the AP exam won't be their only responsibility, but in the end it's what you make of it. I was fascinated by Euro and the person that will do the best in the class is the one that will relish the information and value it. The smartest student may not do as well as the one with the greatest passion for the subject.
