    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class really helped prepare me for college classes. It is probably still the hardest class I have ever taken, as far as work load is concerned, but I would definitely suggest this class for people wanting to further their education AND their learning skills. I was great for me to experience a harder work load and still have help from my teacher and peers to prepare me for being more independent with my work load.

    Course highlights:

    This course was amazing because not only did it prepare me for harder classes later on in my school career but it also helped to really inform me as to the history of our country. We went through U.S. History learning about economic, social, federal, and fiscal policies through out the decades. This information has helped me to make my decisions about what I think is best for the country, and this is especially important in our current economical climate, where it is extremely important to be informed.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Flashcards!! And Crash-course U.S. History on YouTube (run by John Green). Study your notes and focus on the effects of policies on the country rather than the year they were enacted. Don't let the work load stress you out, you'll have a few late nights but it will make you a better student.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend taking this course because Coach Fields is a phenomenal teacher. He teaches AP U.S. History for sophomores and is very skilled at introducing lower classmen to the world of AP classes. The workload is certainly more than regular classes; however, the lessons you learn include everything from how to manage your time to get higher level classwork done, to learning about your country's history, allowing you to better understand the origins of America. To this day I still use information I learned in this class to apply to my views on politics and economy, and goodness knows it is important to be informed in todays political climate.

    Course highlights:

    This course is very informational without being boring or hard to concentrate on. We would discuss topics in a relaxed manner and laugh with each other while getting work done. The stress existed only in the fact that it was all of our first AP class ever and we had no idea what to expect, but I would take it again if I could. I learned how to schedule and organize my work times around extracurricular activities and I learned how to efficiently take notes from power-points so I wouldn't miss any information. Not only did I learn skills that I still apply to my school life today, but I still use the information on our country's history when I talk about the current political climate and my views on what could solve it. This course taught me to apply all the current and past information to the problems in today's world.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Flashcards are your best friend, the repetition of information will make it stick in your memory! I cannot stress this enough! Take good notes, study your vocabulary words, and don't stress about the tests. Throughout the year the tests you take are made harder than the AP test you take at the end of the course so when you take the AP test, you will fly through it without too much worry.
