    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course gives you a great outlook on life! You learn about the whole world-literally- and why relations are the way they are today. You will also most likely go on a field trip, which is always really fun and eye opening. I hope everyone takes this course.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course included watching the current news and relating it to past historical events. I learned that Korea was not apart of China. I also learned about many different religions and why they believe what they believe.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is imperative that you study hard and never fall behind. Don't be afraid to get the AP book and don't be afraid to watch Crash Course when preparing for a test.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class focuses on United States history like no other class I have taken before. It was refreshing to take a course about the United States that did not sugar coat the bad things that America has done.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of the course was learning about the Progressive Era because I strongly identified with their beliefs. I had not previously realized that so many people were as passionate about change as I am.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    When doing reading guides, be active in your note taking and reading. Don't just do it because you have to, take an interest in it. If you allow it to, history can be enchanting. You wouldn't be here without it. Or, if that doesn't sound good, at least do the reading guides.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend taking this course if you have an interest in history and want to gain college credit if you score a 4 or 5 on the AP test. To be able to succeed, you must be willing to keep up with your homework, reading from the textbook, comprehending the material, and taking notes, which is essential for doing well on each test. Understanding the material is not just remembering specific facts and details about an person, event, or time period, but also to understand the big picture. Students need to ask questions such as how did this event affect the future or what consequences lead the US to take this action. What makes this course distinct compared to other general history courses is evidently the amount of work, having a confident ability in your writing, and to be able to understand abstract ideas and use that knowledge to critically think and answer each question.

    Course highlights:

    AP United States history highlights the very roots of our nation from the colonization of the Americas to Obama's presidency. This course thought me to better use my critical thinking skills to draw conclusions and formulate my answers. For example, I once got a question about Native American migration, which asked which region in the United States had huge levels of Native American migration. To answer this question, you would need to know whether or not the Native Americans travelled often or created a permanent settlement and what environment factors contributed to this migration. This history course teaches gives each student an adequate idea of what colleges courses are like.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Students should always prepare for class by finishing their work early, reviewing notes, and managing your time wisely. It is necessary to always be clear and concise when you are writing a history essay or DBQ (document based question). This course is a giant leap from any general or honors history class.
