    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for students with an interest in history, and for those looking for a challenge

    Course highlights:

    One of the most interesting periods we learned about was the period leading up to the Civil War. The role of slavery in our countries economy is not to be ignored. A great agricultural economy was built by the labor of individuals who were forced to come to leave their homes to come to a foreign land and then forced to perform back-breaking labor day in and day out. Agricultural development lead to industrial development which in turn lead to technological development. We owe a great debt to the slaves who gave their sweat and sometimes their lives with no reward.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to have a love of reading and learning lots of details and complex ideas. An ability to take good notes is essential. Disciplined study habits are essential in order to be successful on class exams and the A.P. test. Good written skills are needed as well.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to anyone interested in learning more about all aspects of the United States' history. The class discusses all aspects; the United States' rise to diversity, our growing influence in the world, and how we have changed from our founding to today.

    Course highlights:

    Aside from particular topics, the material given often entices students to really reach their potential interest. Even if any given student's interest in history is lackluster, the course really does peak student's interests with its applicability and relation to the modern United States today. Some particular highlights include the study of the Market Revolution, post-World War Two, the Great Depression, and the Era of the Reagan Administration. These topics in particular still have an affect on modern society, which is why they are so interesting to learn about, and how they teach us how we got where we are today.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    First off, do the reading. All of it, and on time. Second, don't get too caught up in the details. Though it is important to remember dates and times, it is more important to remember their affects socially, politically, or economically. If you learn these things, remembering the dates will come.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you really enjoy history, and don't mind reading a lot, this course can certainly be very fun. It's a lot of work at times, but as long as you keep up with your text book readings, it's not too bad. I really enojyed being in this class my junior year of high school. Plus it is more like what a college class would be so it's a good learning experience in that aspect as well.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a very wide spanning knowledge of American history, more so than I'd had before. It's very fast passes, and I wish I had more opportunities to take clases on specific periods in American history to go more in depth. You get a really god idea of the most important aspects of American history.!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't fall behind on your readings! And studying immensely before a test is a must. There are a lot of great review videos on youtube. Use them! Same goes for AP Euro.
