    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course allowed me to focus on one thing and go in depth with it and slow down when things got difficult, instead od learning a whole lot of things in a short amount of time like in most AP classes.

    Course highlights:

    Some highlights of this course were the projects and the overall discussions of the different subjects being learned about in the class. The discussion part of the class allowed me to have more concrete ideas and do research to have a stronger argument.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take good notes, color code notes if possible and read all the worksheets and readings assigned.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is one of the best classes I have taken in high school, the reason being both the teacher and the content of the course. For people who enjoy learning in depth about relevant, recent historical topics, this class is ideal.

    Course highlights:

    I really enjoyed learning about the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960's. A lot of the topics and sentiments present in the class are being reflected in America now, with police violence and racial tension on the rise. Typically, history classes are forced to glaze over important events because of the sheer volume of history there is to study, but this class is meant to provide a deep understanding of a shorter period of time which I believe is a more effective way of learning history.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best advice is to keep the study material. This is typically a two-year course, and it's easy to forget what has been learned by the second year. In addition, it's necessary to not only take and study notes but to understand the connections between events, and the implications. It's always good to look outside of the class for independent, historical perspectives to improve your position, especially during essays.
