    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It's a great class! The teacher explains things very well and is good at facilitating discussion among the students. My one biggest piece of advice is this: never get behind on your note-taking! If you miss a day of class, find out what chapters you were assigned notes for and take notes on them regardless; you'll thank yourself for it when you get back into class and actually understand everything. Also, don't be afraid to ask questions. Some things are hard to grasp or just plain confusing; teachers are there to help you. Take advantage of that, ask questions! No question is stupid!

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot more about how our government has grown and changed since its conception, even since the Declaration of Independence back in 1776. More than that, though, there were so many facts and events in American history that tend to get glossed over or ignored entirely. For example, that Christopher Columbus was actually a terrible person who basically committed genocide and drove the Native Americans from their land to steal it for the Spanish.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    As stated before, KEEP UP ON YOUR NOTES. Notes are basically your world in this class. There will be lots of them. The chapters are long and arduous, but stay with it! If you're feeling really desperate, there is a website called course-notes.org that has APUSH notes from several different books.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Through the grueling pain of essays and 3 binders of notes, AP History has prepared me for whatever life throws at me. Mr. Loran is thorough and articulate, making sure every one of his students is prepared for the AP test come springtime.

    Course highlights:

    Even though I'm not a huge fan of politics, I now understand quite a lot about the evolution of the democratic and republican parties... As well as how fast I can actually write a three page essay in addition to 2 short answers and 50 multiple choice questions on a test. The highlights was most definitely the review game.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Stick with it. I promise you will survive. Get your work done the night it is assigned; you will not only feel like a superhero, but it will ease your stress immensely. (And Quizlet will save you, trust me.)
