    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is excellent if you want to broaden your knowledge of the past. Mrs. Sumner gives highly entertaining lectures, full of interesting information and anecdotes. You are guaranteed an increased sense of historical literacy if you take the class seriously & participate in discussions. Make sure you stay on top of your assignments (which consist mostly of notes) and ace those tests, which account for most of your grade. Don't worry too much about group assignments; if I recall correctly, there was only one at the end of the year.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed everything after the Enlightenment. Things started to get interesting during the French Revolution, and you will be surprised at how many parallels there are in the future. I was also able to observe how technology, culture, and ideas evolve over the course of time, and how they all eventually led to the world that we all know today.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would highly suggest taking notes ahead of time so that you will have foreknowledge of the material presented in class. For example, I sat down for 4 to 5 hours every Saturday just to take 2 full chapters of outline notes. Not only was I always weeks ahead of the class in terms of knowledge and preparation, but I also had more free time since I did not have to spend time every day taking notes like everybody else. I was able to use that time for more enjoyable pursuits: reading, watching movies, exercising, etc.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    AP European history is a tough class that requires a ton of work, but I can promise that the information you learn in the class will be applied to multiple classes as you continue through your education. You will have a better understanding of history throughout the world and will be able to understand the history behind what you are studying in classes farther down the road.

    Course highlights:

    First off, the stories you hear in that class will keep you focused and entertained. Whether you enjoy war, romance or thriller stories there will be something for everyone. That really helped me stay focused to make sure I could intake all of the information possible. One of the best things that I gained from taking AP European History was how to take great and organized notes. That class teaches you how to create a system of note taking that will work for you in every class you take. I learned the history of all of the European countries and about all their cultures. Knowing world history has benefitted me not only in other history classes, but in other classes such as French, Chemistry and Language arts.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take detailed notes! You will need to study your notes not only for tests but also the AP test. It's important that you supply yourself with all of the information that could possibly be on the test. Make sure you stay caught up on your class readings. That class requires a lot of outside reading in order to learn all of the information by the end of the year, and the only way to fully understand the topics you are being taught is to always stay caught up on your readings. Lastly, find a way to keep yourself interested in what you're learning. That class moves fast and there is a lot of dates and people you must remember. If you find it hard to focus on learning and remembering it all find ways to make the dates or people seem more interesting.
