    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course taught me a lot about US history. It was difficult enough to challenge me so I had to study, but not so difficult that it stressed me out. Mr. Barton is underrated because some of the other APUSH teachers have more vibrant personalities, but Mr. Barton is serious about teaching making sure you understand the material and do well and he is very nice.

    Course highlights:

    Before this course, I really didn't know anything about America before the Revolutionary War or after the Reconstruction. I learned everything much more in depth than I thought I would.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you read the book and watch the videos for every chapter. Even if you don't read the whole chapter, watching those videos helps and they take about 12 minutes each. And pay attention and take notes in lectures because when he explains, you will understand it better than after only reading.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because Mr. Gibbs is an extremely knowledgeable professor! He is always willing to help students before and after school, and since he is the department head he is on top of all his assignments.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were taking the AP exam for US History and achieving a score of a 5. Mr. Gibbs prepared us so well, and now I can use those AP credit hours in college.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to read over the textbook chapters before a test. I didn't listen much in class to lectures, which often meant I had to cram the night before to ensure a good grade on the test.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    A course like AP US history tells more than just the bare bones minimum of how our founding fathers carved America from the colonies of the British. It establishes how, and more importantly, why events occurred in our nation's history. With this course, I learned valuable skills like inferencing and concise writing. I acquired the skill of analytical reading, something that I will carry over into my college career and life.

    Course highlights:

    I thouroughly enjoyed learning about the World War periods and all the causes leading up to them. They were a real turning point in our nation's history since America went from primarily Isolationist to a global superpower. After the second World War, the United States of today starts to take form.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed, I needed to not only read my textbook, but understand the material. It was not enough to know the events taking place, I had to analyze the underlying causes as well. Since each of the chapters are long, I would recommend a group of people splitting up the chapter and summarizing their part on a google doc. This helped me tremendously when the chapters became too long to read in one sitting.
