    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class was amazing! I learned so much about the history of this country and learned a lot about how to study and stay on top of my work.

    The highlight for me was definitely World War 2. The interactions between the warring countries fascinated me and America's ability to prepare for war so quickly.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you read the text book. It can be boring at times but the information in it is valuable.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This was an absolutely fantastic class- if you are into learning history and skills that are applicable to everyday life, definitely take this course. The teacher is one of my favorite teachers that I have ever had and I learned so much. The readings can be long and the tests can be tough, but you truly expand your mind. I was hoping for a 3 on the AP test and scored a 5.

    Course highlights:

    I learned not only relevant parts of US history, but I also learned how to critically think about current and past events. I can now better analyze documents and structure arguments efficiently. The discussions we would have as a class were always incredibly thoughtful and engaging. We would also debate from time to time, and have to argue for each side a different time. That taught us how to look at a situation from a perspective other than our own. This was a fantastic course.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you develop a note-taking system that works well with the textbook. However tempting it may be on a 20+ page night, don't skip anything. You will understand the material better if you take your time with the readings. Make sure you study throughout the year for the AP test as well, if you plan on taking it! Most of all, participate in the class discussions. Ask questions. The teacher has such a passion for history that some of it will undoubtedly rub off on you too. Expect great stories and life lessons from this class!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend it because you learn a lot more than you would in the basic history course, you go very in depth with all the topics that you cover and it represents well what a college course will be like. The AP credits are nice if you go to a university that accepts them, as it puts you ahead in your schooling before you even get there.

    Course highlights:

    We learned the entirety of the history of the United States from before it's conception to modern dates, the projects that we got to do were always the most enjoyable part of the class as you got to be creative with how you present the information you learned to the class, as well as you get to learn more things on specific events or people depending on what subject you get placed with.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to always do your homework as it is crucial to participate in class discussions, as well as read the textbook and take notes so you know what is going on in the classroom and so you can prepare yourself well for tests.
