    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This is a course that I would definitely recommend because I feel it has been preparing me for what is to come in college. It is a class where the reading and note-taking is done completely independently, which teaches us the importance of time management, priorities, and how we, individually, retain the information. The actual class time is spent utilizing higher level thinking about what we read, usually analyzing documents or taking far more in depth notes. Although it may seem like a lot of work it is a really fun and simple class, if you put in the effort.

    Course highlights:

    I have learned so far that time-management is an essential tool, since the tests consist of multiple chapters with several pages of notes, it is not something you can simply do the night before. It taught me that you must read and take notes each day so that you fully retain the material you read. I also learned about the different levels of thinking we do within that single class. At home we read the chapters, which covers the basic levels, in the classroom we analyze documents and connect them to the information we read, which covers the higher thinking levels. History about United States was another fascinating item I learned.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This class mostly consists of reading, and completing Cornell notes over the chapters. In order to succeed you must read and fully comprehend the chapters more than anything. Although you may struggle through the note-taking process, at first, the teacher is always enthusiastic to help. I really recommend that you read each chapter as the teacher suggests, so that you have plenty of time to review before tests; that means, limit the time you procrastinate. Although sometimes you may feel overwhelmed by all of it, it will okay and sometimes you just have to actually start the homework and work hard through it. It really isn't a difficult class, it is even be fun, with the research projects and presentations!

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course, because it explains how the American world we live in today came to be. It is so interesting to understand why we have political parties, social issues, and diverse cultural populations. As you take the course, you may even discover something about yourself or your hometown that will blow you away.

    Course highlights:

    I remember truly thriving during the part of the course focused on colonial times. The Salem Witch Trials and Boston Tea Partya dn Massacre were particularly interesting. Each significant war was also interesting to learn about, as each had such interesting effects on the economy, culture, and well being of the nation.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Students considering AP US History should be ready to take detailed notes. Keep your notes organized, and try to take them in a Cornell format. The Cornell format allows you to go back and study for tests and eventually the AP test, because you can answer your summary questions and check your answers easily and efficiently.
