    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this class only if you are looking to do some real work. You cannot slack off in this class, the moment you do, you get way behind.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were the merciless readings, the theme boxes that we did to summarize each chapter and the seemingly endless essays. The class looks to improve a student's work ethic.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Take this class, with caution. Know what you are getting into, it’s a lot of work but a big payoff. Don’t procrastinate and do your reading.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course because I have learned so much about our country's history, good and bad, and it opened my eyes to so many things I didn't know. If you are interested in either pursuing a field in history or simply want to learn more about our country, then I would highly recommend this course.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the highlights of this course for me were learning about the Great Depression and how it was caused by credit cards and reckless buying, how FDR fixed the country with his New Deal Program and a war, and the country's horrible treatment of Native Americans. These opened my eyes to so much more going on, and it allowed me to get a better understanding of what was going on in our country during this time.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell you to study the information you get each night after you get it instead of cramming before a major test, and you shouldn't stress over Document Based Questions if you get them, because they are normally pretty easy overall. You also shouldn't freak out all of the time, but you should definitely make friends with your teacher and ask for help if you need it.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course to students who are willing to commit to the workload. The class definitely is rigorous because it gives plenty of homework that makes you think as opposed to homework that is simple to complete. However, this course gets easier once you get the hang of how to do the assignments. In addition, this course is very beneficial because it teaches you to look at history through multiple viewpoints. Also, it teaches you to compare and contrast events in history. Lastly, this course gives you the skills to develop your own opinions about events in history and support those opinions with actual evidence.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course is the library of history that you gain at the end of the semester, you basically become a historian because you are able to not only talk about an event in history, but tell how it impacted everything as a whole. You are able to make connections that you weren't able to make before. This you are able to compare and contrast how all events in U.S. history ultimately led to what the U.S. is today. Personally, I feel like I learned all these skills. In addition I learned how to differentiate events in history by themes and time periods.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    You must make sure you read everything that is assigned to you. Also, you must complete all written assignments because failure to do so will impact your grade quite a bit. In addition, it would be very beneficial to you to do every possible extra credit assignment. Lastly, it is very important to study for the tests ahead of time and not be absent. Doing all these things will ensure that you pass the class with the best possible grade you can get.
