    Course Overview:

    Just study and review content before each class and you will be fine.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was tough which is obvious since it is a AP one. Although it is tough, it's worth taking because of how much knowledge you gain. The teacher gave great lectures and made sure the students knew the material before each unit test.

    Course highlights:

    As the class went through each unit, we learned about them thoroughly. I really enjoyed the unit at the end of the year which was when we learned about the 50s. We were put into small groups and put on a skit that demonstrated values and what life was like during the 50s. It was fun to create as well as fun to watch how each group decided to portray the 50s. We were taught about the presidents of the United States and what they did for the country. It was interesting to see how each president compared to others and how they changed the country for better or for worse.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you turn in all assignments on time and put in your best effort, you will succeed in this class. Doing all your work and studying for tests will not only help your grade but you will enjoy the class more.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class was extremely interesting and engaging. Mr. Loland offers a very comprehensive view of US History focusing on class discussions of the reading to further understanding. Not a ton of projects which was good because you could just focus on the studying. The chapter questions, though tiresome, were very helpful.

    Course highlights:

    The most interesting thing that I learned was that there are so many things from our past that are still affecting our current socio-political climate. There was constant discussion about the through-lines in history and cause and effect which is so important in understanding history.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to read a lot and don't put it off! If you keep up with the reading at the beginning you'll be fine later. Fill out the Stuff to Know packets; it might sound tedious but it really is a helpful study tool. Also, if you're at all amenable to musicals, listening to Hamilton during the Revolution portion of the course was surprisingly helpful.
