    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class to students who are either experienced in AP credits from the past and those who are taking their first AP in high school. If a student has been an honors student in the past I would recommend this class to be the first AP to take.

    Course highlights:

    APUSH was an important introduction by how a college class would feel and from taking this class I became more confident in how I would approach college. Mr Thill created a high school version of a college atmosphere in his classroom. This class also taught me how to keep up in school. Expecially with the outlines.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Understand that the outlines might only be homework, they are still vital. I would not slack with the outlines while it will help both your grade in homework and for review on the tests. Also for the chapter quizzes, I would write as much information as possible for the question. There were times I was a little too vague on an answer to the point I lost many points.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Although I had a hard time keeping up with this course, it was such an efficient way to prepare for college. I have heard from many former students of his, who currently attend universities, and constantly point out the similarities between their classes in college and the high school AP U.S. History course. I would recommend it to all students who are determined and wish to get a glimpse at what a college course would look like.

    Course highlights:

    I have learned how to be responsible regarding homework and studying for tests. It was no longer sufficient to read through notes the night before the test. I had to work on it weeks prior to it and come into school early regularly for help.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do ALL of the assignments even if they cannot be turned in anymore because they will help in the long run. Tests and quizzes often refer back to the homework done over the course. Also, it was a nice resource when studying for the AP exam.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the material covered is actually incredibly interesting! If you like history, I would definitely recommend this class. The textbook goes in-depth to actual historical events and covers the Revolutionary War all the way to the early 2000's.

    Course highlights:

    I really enjoyed doing discussions on the different books that we read as homework. I remember there was "After The Fact" and the "American Political Tradition". Out of the two books, I enjoyed "After The Fact" more but both were effective and interesting ways to learn. The chapters cover either a historical event or historical person in great detail and are much more interesting to read than taking lecture notes. Also, the discussions are interesting because they allow you to have a different perspective on what you have read.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do your homework! As difficult as it is to make yourself do outlines, do them! They are actually a large part of the grade, in high school at least, and cover most of the material put into the unit test. Be ready to work hard!
