    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Despite having to mentally juggle the names of more foreign leaders than I ever cared to memorize, IB History of the Americas remained the class that challenged me and rewarded me the most. If you put in the work then you will see the success and if you don't, good luck.

    Course highlights:

    I definitely continued to learn how to write a right and proper essay, even though I still have work to do. There is no better feeling that getting an essay back that you were sure you failed and having a 90 written on the rubric instead.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the homework thoroughly because it will save you in the long run, pay attention during movies, and actually study for tests.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class was quite helpful in understanding American Expansion and how America became a global superpower. Many different sources were used in order to show the different aspect and perspectives of each event, such as when studying America's westward expansion, we studied Turner, focused on American necessity to expand westward, while also studying Limerick, who focused on minorities' and women's role during westward expansion. This, along with heavy emphasis on how to write, is very beneficial in future history classes on understanding history and how to share ideas and discuss

    Course highlights:

    The teacher is quite open with students, and she works hard in setting you up for tests. The way she sets up presentations makes it easy to pay attention, but also requires it. Her fill-in-the-blank notes that she hands out are the best, concise notes, that you'll ever get. Her homework assignments are designed to be used for studying for tests and In Class Essays as well, and as a class we have discussions about events and morality of those events.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the homework, even though it is very long, but in the end, it will prepare for tests like no other class. The notes are easy to take and really beneficial in the long run, make sure to complete those.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Don't procrastinate and really do close readings. It is important if you want to pass the tests. I found that it was nice to have a binder because even though the teacher puts a lot of the stuff in your Google Docs it is hard to keep track of all the huge readings, packets and papers she hands out that you sometimes have to keep over the course of 4 months. Also, EAGA is a really really long unit but when it ends everyone is happy and you've accomplished a lot.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were that since I was in seventh period it was a relatively small class of 18 people and we were able to have a better teacher to student ratio compared to most classes in public school. I learned the William Taft had a custom bath tub made for him because he was +300 lbs. You start to see that a lot of the presidents that you awed over when you were younger had quite a few flaws.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make a study guide throughout the unit and study through it. Don't cram the last minute, you'll forget and have to recall it later for other stuff. The tests are all multiple choice but don't let that trick you because some of the questions are very close in options. Quizlet is most definitely your friend and you can probably find a lot online from other students.
