    Truly informative and the teacher was patient and understanding

    Our in-depth analysis into the American Revolutionary War was super deep and my class and I came out of the unit with a profound understanding of the event.

    6-8 hours

    Just do your homework and don't slack on note-taking

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it offers a thorough understanding of American History, and teaches many untold stories that some students have never learned in any history class before.

    Course highlights:

    This course taught me how to be diligent in reading a textbook each night, and how to outline a chapter properly. One of my favorite parts of the course was the section on the Industrial Revolution, where we learned about the captains of industry such as Rockefeller and Carnegie.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I definitely would recommend reading the textbook each night to avoid falling behind from what is going on in class. Reading the textbook reinforces ideas talked about in class and makes studying for tests and the AP exam much easier.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I have always believed this, but in light of the recent election, I feel it is vastly important that we understand the history of our nation, especially how we cope with big changes. This course helps students to better understand the path our nation has been on since its birth, and I found this incredibly helpful when it came to figuring out why things are the way they are today.

    Course highlights:

    Our textbook last year included different sections for each event on how each event/decision effected the native americans, the african americans, and the women of the time. This made American history less about solely "white men", and more about everyone.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My class had almost daily reading checks which we could use our notes for. So, I would say that if you are taking this class, ask your teacher about reading checks. If you have them, prepare to take super detailed notes, very, very often, but don't be afraid to make them silly, or written in a way that you will remember them.
