    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because I have never learned so much, been so interested in something, and retained all that I learned at one time than I did with this course.

    Course highlights:

    I learned so much about how people affect where they live and the demographic composition around the world.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are wanting to take this course be prepared; Mr.Ragland might be the best but hardest teacher I have had all at the same time. He will push you to your limits but challenge you and always encourage you to so your best.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a history class like no other, simply because it is the most applicable form of any history class I have ever taken. It has been three years since I took the course, but I am still familiar with the concepts and I am able to understand real world political and global issues so much better than before.

    Course highlights:

    We learned everything from world population trends to religion, ethnic wars to pop culture. Anything relating to the way humanity lives and interacts was fair game. A lot of real world problems and events that are very significant and little known were revealed to me, in a non political or biased way, and it was very eye opening.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not fall behind on the sections. Read them, take notes, and be a bit familiar with the topic before your teacher lectures on it. Also, any sort of contribution you can make to a discussion, questions you can ask during a lesson, or any other form of participation, would be fantastic. It helps you remember the concepts and connect them together, and makes your teacher happy.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's a great course that really makes you think about what your beliefs really are. I went in expecting to just be told what I already know, but I actually learned more about myself and others than I had all through high school. I didn't change who I was, it gave me perspective and guidance to be able to express what I believe in with confidence.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite thing about this course was the speeches about, "who are you and what you believe." Trying to pick something to writer about was brutal, I felt like I wasn't really explaining or going into depth, but when I finally shared my story to the class, I felt great. Hearing the stories about from everyone else really changed your opinions about them, for the better.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't go in hard headed and close minded. You're going to have to learn about different ways of thought, so you should embrace that, and adopt the things you like, and use everything else to reinforce what you know. Be open to change.
