    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    AP United States History takes the history you've already learned in 8th grade, and expands it into epic proportions. Mr. Mui and Mr. Ignani have their separate classes, but the lectures are combined. One day Mr. Mui does a lecture, and the next day Ignani will do a lecture, and on and on. Both teachers have different styles, with Mr. Mui being more calm and thoughtful (with all the dry humor you could want) and Mr. Ignani being aggressive, eager, and sarcastic. Whether or not the coursework was difficult, the actual class itself is incredibly fun.

    Course highlights:

    In effect, I learned all the big mistakes of the past. I learned how a battle between a haughty bank president and an uneducated Andrew Jackson brought the Second Bank of the United States to its knees, precipitating on of the worst financial collapses in the nations history. I learned the dark, twisting path that vaulted the nation into civil war and abolished slavery (with the 13th amendment not the emancipation proclamation). That's why history is exciting. It presents an opportunity learn from the past and to not repeat the same mistakes.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is extremely important to stay on top of things. Outline your chapters on time, do your readings right away, and turn in their summaries (called 8 by 11s) on time. If you enjoy history even a little bit, then there should be no problem keeping up.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The class itself is really interesting. It takes some getting used to, but it was definitely one of my favorite high school classes that I've taken. Plus, the teachers all love the subject so much that they're AMAZING at teaching it all, making the class much more enjoyable.

    Course highlights:

    The main highlight is the teachers if they care about what they're doing, like mine did. It was extremely enjoyable, and learning about time periods such as the roaring 20's and the counter culture was really fun.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    For the love of God, manage your time wisely. Outlining will be the death of me one day, but I always put it off to the last minute. DON'T DO THAT. Oh and the AP test was easy so don't worry about that.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It's hard and me personally he was mean to and even cussed me out after the year was over. He is a racist loser and would not recommend anyone of color take his classurroundings. He loves white people.

    Course highlights:

    We learned a lot but the best part was the hippie stage it was very interesting. That was the only thing I actually like about that stupid class although it is at the end of the year.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would take the class if you want to but there are very limited teachers and there is a good chance you might get my teacher so if you do good luck.
