    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    These two courses really test your knowledge on the English and History subject. It was very challenging at first but I got through at the end. The one thing that these two subjects have helped me with is my writing. English helped me write a informative essay that uses all of my ideas. History taught me to use prior knowledge and evidence to help support an argumentative paper.

    Course highlights:

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is very challenging and can help you become an overall good learner. Both AP English and AP US History have helped me become a better note taker, it has helped me learn how to ask better questions, and has highly improved my analysis ability.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of both AP English and AP US History courses would have to be all of the essay writing. Because of all of the essays, I gained a heightened ability to analyze and understand text and then write about that same text.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My best advice is to take lots of notes, ask questions, and, most importantly, pay attention. Since the course was yearlong, my teacher gave our class plenty of opportunities to practice and prepare for the AP exam. I advise that you take any opportunity for help and that you trust your teacher in helping you succeed on the AP Exam.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is rigorous and will challenge students to their full potential. This course will also prepare students for college level courses and academics.

    Course highlights:

    In this class I gained more knowledge on American history and how Society has changed because of the impact on what our founding fathers wanted for America. The interesting part about this course was learning how going to war pretty much solved any conflict throughout history

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Students Should take this course if they are interested in learning more about history as well as challenged themselves for a college ready course.
