    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course was rigorous in going in depth with nearly every historical issue, not only focused on the United States, but also the rest of the world at the time. On a regular basis we would have 3 or more hours of book work a week and we would discuss the text during class. It was also very fun because the teacher made sure to tell us the memorable facts and stories in the most entertaining way she could.

    Course highlights:

    One of the best parts of the course is learning the obscene things people used to do and how they became terribly misconstrued. We learned how to check multiple documents for the same issue and we looked at our current government through multiple lenses to get accurate information about the world around us. I learned less about wars than I thought I would, instead I learned about the creation of many social, environmental, political, and economical structures that were set up over the years. One of my other favorite parts of the course was getting to watch and partake in the decade skits that took place after the AP test. They were fun, creative, and highly informational.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You should always be taking notes and reviewing them alongside your text. She uses lecture style teaching with the expectation that because you at least read the text once that you are highly familiar with it, so the more you read it and annotate it, the better you will do. She asks a good amount of difficult questions every day so be prepared. Don't be afraid of her like she pretends she wants you to be, she is tough but one of the best teachers I've ever had. And NEVER put off your homework, it will be disadvantageous in multiple ways. She also expects a higher range of vocabulary, so study up your more complex words, and if you see a word you don't know, look it up. She will help you become college ready.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Although it was one of the hardest and most demanding class I've ever taken, it really helped prepare me for college and made me realize my academic potential.

    Course highlights:

    Whether or not you are interested in history, you are bound to find at least an entire era in U.S. History that you find appealing. The most important things I learned in this class weren't dates and events, but study habits and the value of hard work.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you take this course, you must be all in. If you are on the fence about participation or studying, your grade will reflect this. Due to all of the studying you must do, it's a good idea to find a way to learn that suits you bes.t

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Very difficult class. Definitely take if you're ready to commit to a challenge. Not only will you learn more than you've ever wanted to know about us history, but you will also learn an enormous amount about your personal study habits and how improve every aspect of your academics from note taking to studying habits and test taking tips.

    Course highlights:

    I learned more about how to be a prepared student than us history. I even learned little skills as easy (and important) and how much text to highlight. Your maturity and responsibility will improve tremendously if you take this course.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of your work and never think you can get away with slacking. Always show up to class prepared and already understanding the material being discussed.
