    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Newman is a great teacher. He does a good job of teaching about U.S. History from the Colombian Exchange to Present day history. The lessons are quick and thorough, the assignments aren't too easy nor too hard. His tests are not too easy either, but not too hard. He puts in personal stories also that go along with the lesson. He works you to get to the AP test at the end of the year

    Course highlights:

    This course reinforced my knowledge about what has happened in the U.S. Mr. Newman told us a lot about the monopoly of businesses during the Gilded Age. He had many good stories from that time that were very interesting.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the reading assignments. Study for the tests. He does a good job of teaching, but you need to reinforce the subject.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. Vimahi is a very good teacher who made the subject really interesting. The subject all by itself was interesting, but she made it even more so.

    Course highlights:

    I gained an understanding about people through this course. There is one unit when we talked about Nature v. Nurture. It was interesting and eye-opening. I can be less judgmental and understanding of others now.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    You do get a textbook, but there isn't a lot of reading to do. Just do the reading when it is assigned and everything will make a lot more sense.
