    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This History course is not easy. Over 30 pages of reading (at minimum) are required every week, and a 1000 page research paper tri-weekly. These facts are not stated as a downside however. Students must learn how to work hard or we will never grow up, we will never be able to truly succeed if we are not pressed. This course helps to establish that habit of hard work in students.

    Course highlights:

    American History is one of the most important things for young people to learn and delve into, those who forget history are doomed to repeat it. The text book used in this course is extremely comprehensive, and yet concisely informs of the objective factual proceedings of our nation's history. One thing our nation desperately needs is to be taught our true history, this course does that.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Work hard! Carry out your reading and studying systematically, and take copious notes. Something I discovered to be quite beneficial, and in fact enjoyable, was to read another book such as a biography about someone of that time, alongside of my text book. This practice served to enhance my knowledge of the events occurring, get a second perspective, and also broaden the base of knowledge I had for the future, and more case specific, when it came to writing my research papers.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend other students take AP US History. AP courses help prepare students for the AP exam, and they provide students with college credit. They also prepare them for the rigorous courses in college. My class was an online class with relatively easy-to-use interface. The course material was challenging, yet also very informative. The teacher was very kind and was able to explain the motivations behind historic events. The students were uplifting and encouraging and offered thought-provoking inquiries that helped solidify concepts in my mind.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of this course was the live sessions. I was able to interact with other students and discover how they viewed difficult concepts like the inevitability of a war. I was able to talk to the teacher and ask her questions about the week's material. By taking this course I gained a better understanding of my country's history. I learned how to evaluate historical events according to the Bible. I discovered some of the ulterior motives behind great movements such as Settlement of the New World, Manifest Destiny, Indian Removal, and the Civil War. I learned how to decipher information and facts, linking names and dates with events, motivations, and consequences.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is important to come up with a schedule for studying. APUSH covers extensive amounts of material in 1 week, and it is easy to get buried under the workload. Having a studying schedule prevents you from cramming and makes the amount of assignments seem more bearable.
