    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a course in which you have to work hard in order to see results. Just going to the class does absolutely nothing for you, but if you consistently read up on the history, you will learn so much during class time. The teacher is extremely nice but you have to listen and pay attention to her lectures in order to do well!

    Course highlights:

    I loved the Socratic seminars because I enjoyed debating around about historical topics! Also, I found that a lot of students have a knack for history and others don't. Don't worry, the class is very interactive and I loved it lots!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep working hard and trying your best! Consistently keep up with the reading and you'll do just fine. Sometimes results don't show at first, but they will show if you keep it working!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it's very important for this new generation of Americans to understand the political and social movements and evolutions that accumulated in order to create our systems today.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was being able to incorporate one of the biggest culture sweeps of 2016-17 which was the play Hamilton with our early American politics unit. It was fun to see the same information displayed in a more creative platform.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You really need to pay attention in class. Every bit of classwork given is significant and it WILL lead to success not only in the class but in the AP test. Ms. Vosskuhler will expect you to get your hands on an AP review book somehow and she does have her own set for borrowing but she does expect you to get one somehow in order for maximum knowledge retention.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course illuminated the history of the United States to me, and let me know that some of the issues that we have today aren't new. Racial tension, economic disparity - all of these existed when the United States was still developing its global position. The difference is, we need to learn from these issues and prevent them from discouraging our nation's growth.

    Course highlights:

    I think some of the highlights of this course were connecting what we learned historically to how that compares on a more modern level. Activities like group posters or timelines let us bond and engage collaboratively.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always look at the big picture. Of course, know as much about an event as you can, but if you can connect that event to a bigger idea or theme, then you'll have a much better opportunity for success in the course.
