    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    My teacher was the most engaging and grounded man I've ever met. The teachers who work with this stuff typically want to get you engaged and understand why history and roots are important when in America, it's difficult to appreciate those roots when we abandoned our ancestry to learn a new path. This class really just opened my eyes to what kind of change is possible in this world.

    Course highlights:

    Favorite teacher ever. I learned how to balance my mental health, my home life, my classroom life, and even my social life because of him. I learned that I want to help people and not only make a difference, but change the world.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study the material. Connect it through out history; synthesis is key! If you learn to make these connections on your own, you can't go wrong.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Fontanella is probably one of the best teachers I have in this school. His class is hard but he makes you work and the way he teaches notes is the best way for me because we are all interacting with the lesson.

    Course highlights:

    You have to put in more effort than simply just doing the homework

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study when you have time and do your work ahead of time because it takes up hours to do.
