    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course if you love a lecture orientated class. This class does have its ups and downs as not all topics will suit your interest, but it is mostly very interesting. This is one of the best history courses and I give this 5 stars because it is a very light course in terms of Advanced Placement and is a great stepping stone onto more difficult classes.

    Course highlights:

    The main highlight of this course would be the debates that we did during this class. We debated about the quality of Jacksons presidency, the captains of industries, and a few others. The most valuable thing I learned from this class is to have an open mind about the opposing side as they would probably not agree with you yet you have to remain understanding.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Find something that works for you. AP US History is a very orientated towards reading, but that was not the best way for me to learn. I was a very visual and person who likes to hear information but I was very interested in this class. Don't let that scare you. If you are interested, take the class regardless of work. I personally watched many helpful videos and barely read and scored well on the AP Exam. This class is flexible with preparation and can be done in many ways.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course really opens one's eyes to the rich history of this country, and the educators teaching this course are amazing. Of all the history classes I have taken throughout my scholastic career, this is the one I liked the best.

    Course highlights:

    AP US History allows students to develop the skills of "historical mindfulness", which I also learned in this course. This is the highlight of the course, because students gain a deeper understanding of history, and can carry this skill to any history courses they take in the future.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure that you thoroughly read and understand all material. Don't be afraid to ask questions or get involved in class discussions. However, above all else, try to find something throughout the class that intrigues you, and makes you want to learn more.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Even if you've had difficulty with history courses previously, AP United States History offers a unique perspective to studying history. There is more openness to question, debate, and overall develop your own personal opinions on the subject.

    Course highlights:

    The projects in the course were very involved and allowed leniency when it came to what you needed to do to get the best score possible. It was also a very safe environment in which you always felt that you would be able to ask questions in class or one-on-one with the teacher. The assignments were frequent, but not overbearing. There were always different ways to go about studying the subject and get the most out of it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To be successful in this class, you should understand how you study best. Fortunately, there are several different resources that are provided by the teacher so that you can exercise different learning methods. If you are a visual learner, there are animations, videos, and power-points. If you are better at listening, most of the course circulates around lectures and other lectures are provided on YouTube and more. Other methods are also available as well, such as hands-on experience.
