    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Van Camp is one of the greatest, most thorough and passionate teachers in the school! You can instantly tell that he loves the subject(s) that he teaches and to him it's more than teaching, it's about sharing onto your students the valuable information that needs to be learned! In his class you are very free to announce and express your concerns and opinions no matter how afraid you might be to others' reactions.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was how fun the class setting was, the interesting facts we learned as well from sources outside of the textbook, and if I could I would have him as a teacher over and over again! Taking his class would fill you up with more information than any other source from the textbook, computer, etc. and you'll have a lot of fun in his class!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always be on time. Come prepared and ready to learn and trust me you'll have fun. RESPECT HIM AT ALL TIMES because he's one of those teachers that are so nice and fun but some students are very rude and he's a good person, so treat him like one. Be prepared to read a lot and to start doing outlines for a lot of the chapters in the book. Only write down the important facts or what's important to you because not only will you learn from him, you'll learn from each other and yourself as well.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course!! I learned a great deal about people, global issues, poverty, wars, ideologies, colonization, and many other traits that shape the way we view and study world history. I was never really interested in any kind of history prior to this course, but afterwards, I became more interested in unraveling the mysteries of the world.

    Course highlights:

    This course gave me some insight as to why the world is the world is the way it is today. In other words, we learned about why some countries are poorer in comparison to other countries, why some regions have a certain culture, why some regions speak a certain language, and other important features of the world as we know it. Another highlight of this course was learning about the history of discrimination and violence against certain people in the world.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    All you need to do to succeed in this course is to take very diligent notes, be an active listener/ participator in class, study, and ask questions!! Also, start assignments and projects on time so that you are not rushing to finish at the last minute.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's just such an informative class. It actually goes back to the beginning and teaches you from there unlike in a regular world history class where they would start at the renaissances or something.

    Course highlights:

    The Socratic Seminars and debates we would do.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take the course ! Make sure you study and if you start to struggle just ask for help from the teacher or classmates even.
