    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because this course taught me not only a large amount about History but it taught me how to be responsible with my school work and duties. I learned to stop procrastinating and get things done as soon as I have the chance.

    Course highlights:

    I gained lots of knowledge about other cultures and beliefs other than my own. This course helped me understand History in a way that I never had before. The teacher was very concerned and the bond we had made me want to learn everyday.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    I don't advise students to procrastinate while taking this course because work and deadlines can and will sneak up. I also encourage other students to ask questions if a topic isn't understood completely. No question is a dumb question.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this class. Mr. Embley is a fantastic teacher. He has an extensive understanding of the history and government of the United States and teaches in an objective way to give his students a thorough understanding unclouded by opinions. It was an Advanced Placement class, so it was structured around scoring highly on the end of year AP test. It was a very engaging class and I learned a lot of important things. We always had great discussions and it was pretty entertaining.

    Course highlights:

    I learned to look at the systems of the US Government objectively and try to understand many sides to the issues that surround it. I learned about a lot of things I didn't previously understand, like the importance of the US Constitution, how the court system works, and what the President is really allowed and not allowed to do. It was very interesting to me.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study more than I did. I didn't study as much as I should have, especially for the midterm and end of term tests, and I got a three on the AP test, but I probably could have scored higher had I studied harder. We had a few presentations and current event assignments, but there wasn't that much homework. Also, if you can, learn as much about US history as you can. It will help so much.

    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.
