    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course is culturally enriching and highly intriguing for anyone who enjoys learning of histories many complex interpretations. It teaches of the origins of many of America's laws and social standards. This course is also increasingly important because it teaches people not only of our nation's sucesses but also its failures. Knowing both sides helps students see that their country imperfect and that there is always space to strive to improve it.

    Course highlights:

    There was a lot of history in this class that previous history courses had blurred in a way traded reality for of nationalism. This course got gritty addressing the struggles for equality, not just of salves but of Native Americans and other minority groups. The lessons showed the different versions of the american dream and how people throughout history strove towards them. Lessons did more than just skim the surface, they mined deep and explored a myriad issues. Many primary sources were looked into to take looks into the mindset of long passed times so students could understand how decisions that changed both the nation and the world were made. In this class you don't just explore what happened: you explore what lead to it and you explore the development of culture and the migration of people and many other aspects of development not normally dressed in history courses.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this class you need to enter it willing to give your all. I found that it was helpful to write down lists of anything that could be used as support for essays on whatever time period we were on and write brief descriptions to accompany each piece of SFI. I tended to read the text book chapters that accompanied each unit once without stopping then again while making note of the the key points of each section. Making notes in that way helps categorize information and keep it organized. These notes were also more practical material to study at the end of the year then the text book as a whole.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is interesting due to the fact that you learn a lot about the United States that you may not have already known.

    Course highlights:

    In this course you learn about each president individually, the constitution, and even how the United States was created.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    There is a lot of self teaching in this class. The teachers will give you all the information you need, but you will have to go further into detail with some of it.
