    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is an incredibly informative course that teaches at an advanced level. The course content is incredibly interesting and details the United State's history which is something all citizens of the United States should be informed upon. Overall, this course was very informative in assisting and amplifying my knowledge of the United States and its interactions throughout the world at large over the course of our history.

    Course highlights:

    I learned quite a lot from this course, much more than I thought I would at the beginning of the course. I learned everything from the beginning of our history, the Stone Age and the Native Americans, to the most present situations, including the 9/11 terrorist attacks and Obama's administration. I learned how to accurately analyze documents and connect them to the world at large which is particularly useful in analyzing trends and patterns in our world today.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    One thing that must be done for this course is the reading. If you don't do the reading you are in A LOT of trouble. The completed reading is important because it allows you to arrive to class with an advanced knowledge of what is to be talked about already; in addition, this allows more time for discussions over the material to assist comprehension.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a course that develops essay-writing skills and a deep sense of appreciation for our country´s rich history. Mrs. Clark is a loving and dedicated teacher with years of experience. In general, the course allows students that generally dislike the subject of history to enjoy it and apply it into their own lives. It teaches reading comprehension as you read historic documents, the text book, and many other scripts. All in all, a harder course made enjoyable through its material and the teacher.

    Course highlights:

    Because of the many hours of essay-writing, document-reading, studying, and memorizing, I learned to be a much more diligent person. It is a class that requires personl responsability that really causes you to grow as a person and be ready for senior year and afterwards, college. I arrived to other AP classes such a Language and Composition well-prepared to write comprehensive essays and analyze difficult multiple-choice questions.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The biggest advice I can give is to study the multiple-choice questions from the tests that you take. They are from previous AP exams and they prepare you very well to take your own exam. Also, always talk with your teacher about their reasoning behind the grades received on written exams. They have a great deal of experience and know what college board is looking for. Work less on memorizing dates, and focus more on learning what happened during certain events and their impact on American history.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is the part of our American history that tends to be more interesting & can be made into a fun & educational experience. It gives a better knowledge of what our country has been through to get to where we are now.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the projects we got to do & the videos about our wars/history that we watched during class. The teacher also made the class very exciting & kept us awake and ready to learn.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    As long as you pay attention in class, you will be able to make sense of the content. Be attentive in note taking and ask questions because the teacher is very good at explaining things you don't understand. If you don't understand after, he will try to explain it to you until you understand it. Participation in class when you can also helps to improve grades.
