    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    For me personally, I do not want to go into anything of the history kind as a major or a career. APUSH was a LOT of learning facts and history and took up a ton of time, especially going through the textbook chapters. I do not know many people who want to go into history and if one does not plan on doing that, this course is rather... too much time spent on not that big of a result.

    Course highlights:

    It was interesting to see in depth on how the foundation of America was built on and you realize that much of it is very hypocritical, making you wonder the values and morals upon which the American system was built on.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Although reading the textbook is the best option, usually I would not have time to read through each chapter and taking notes, which would take up to 4 hours at a time, reading 2-3 chapters. I started going on the review guides instead nad watching the chapter review videos by Adam Norris, which goes over much of the important details and also saves time.

    | Would highly recommend.

    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.

    | Would highly recommend.

    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.
