    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this because you learn slot about different cultures and it's just a very interesting topic.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about Mexico and their achievements and their failures as well.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just to stay on top of your readings and get them on time. There isn't so many textbjust one per semester I would say.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend Mr. Wootton because of his attitude and his extensive knowledge regarding American history. He is also a very wacky guy that likes to act out the periods of history with props and real life situations. Mr. Wootton is also very accommodating and treats his students nicely; he doesn't get angry at all and is not strict.

    Course highlights:

    I was able to get a 4 on the APUS exam that I took in May thanks to all the content that we covered from the book. There is a lot of history that you will learn throughout the year including preparations with DBQ's that are very beneficial to the test in general. You will also leave with the background on the U.S. and where we got to where we are today. Very interesting especially if you are a history buff!

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice as to any class is to do the work early, because I did it right before class, and I stressed out. Save that energy and put it in throughout the week. Also read the chapter! Many people did not even read the text, but if you want to understand what the class is talking about then do so. It would also help for more people to participate, so each chapter is essential. Be prepared for work that is going to require understanding you reading and synthesizing it.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    There are mixed feelings because initially I came into the course thinking that the focus would be concentrated in the Western Hemisphere, but throughout the course we have spent a limited amount of time on Latin America because we have been focusing on major powers and wars.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were learning the causes and effects behind the actions and motives created by political leaders. World War II was interesting because we were able to add to our understanding of the extent of the consequences that came at the end of WWII.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    There is a lot of reading involved since this is an IB course and you are not always told to take notes but you should anyways because it can help when you will have to create essays based off of the reading. Also when you read there has to be a very in depth reading and taking into account all the small details and historians since a big part of the course is to be able to discuss the different schools of thought.
