    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would high recommend this course to anyone who has an interest or hold curiosity over the cultures of places around the world. This was a great class to express your feelings over certain topics and hear the opinions of others and how they view the material shown in class.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course would have to be when we were learning about different body modifications around the globe. There were so many that we broke into pairs and created our own presentation on our own body modification. My group choose Scarification and although it was a little nerve-wracking having to look at some of the stronger pictures the concept behind it was interesting.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advice students to not be afraid to speak what they're thinking in this class because no will will judge. The atmosphere is always vibrant and filled with eager minds ready to see what new topic we will discuss as a class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class for anyone interested in learning about revolutionary socio-economic and political changes in areas of Europe. I would recommend this course to those looking to learn about a sort of rebirth of Europe.

    Course highlights:

    I think the highlights are the renaissance era and all that it encompasses. There were discussions on the church and art how they were blending together but also the changes. What a great time in history.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would suggest that students coming into this class should have an open mind and try to take in all that this era has to offer.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would completely recommend AP Euro if you enjoy history, especially foreign history. Overall, the topics are extremely fun to learn and the connections you can make from the 1300's to today are astounding. There are so many references to AP Euro in books, movies, and music that you feel really smart when you recognize them.

    Course highlights:

    My particular favorite part of the course was the Renaissance section. I loved discussing the different artwork and how they changed overtime due to papal influence. It was interesting to see the differences in Italian Renaissance in terms of materials used and subjects of the art in comparison to the North that focused highly on religious symbolism in the work. For this course, I started with the High Middle Ages and the Bubonic Plague. We then moved through both Renaissances, the Protestant Reformation, The Catholic Reformation, the French Wars of Religion, the Golden Age of Exploration, the Slave Trade, the English Civil War, Western and Eastern Absolutism, the Enlightenment, the Industrial Revolution, WW1, WW2, the Cold War, and we touched slightly on Europe after 1980. Overall, really interesting topics.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are considering this course, good for you! That is a step in the right direction. I did not have any prior knowledge of the subject when I started except for some common info and I still passed the class with an A and the AP exam with a 4. If you are really worried then I would suggest reading a little bit on some of the topics I discussed earlier. Be prepared to read all sorts of literature and be prepared to write a lot as half the exam is short-answer questions, a DBQ (Document Based Essay), and a LRQ (Long Response Essay). Don't sweat it though, if you work hard you will be fine.
