    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class, although not necessarily to freshmen. This is a fantastic class for someone who has already developed some study skills and is looking to improve their note-taking or timed writing, but if you have never taken a truly challenging class before it may end up a bit of a "sink or swim" environment. That said, you definitely learn a lot in this class and Mr. Babichenko is an incredible teacher; I was very prepared for the AP exam and ended up scoring a 5 thanks to him. Overall, this course has a strong recommendation from me!

    Course highlights:

    My note-taking and timed writing improved by miles by the end of this course. I was admittedly a strong student coming into the class, but looking at my writing from the beginning of the year to the end of the year there was a marked change in quality. We wrote a massive amount and critical thinking was key in both the in-class and outside of class assignments. I also improved my teamwork, as group assignments and presentations were frequent and intense. You can look forward to a lot of discussion and in-depth coverage of history in this class-- there won't be any reason for you to pull out your phone during session!

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    First and foremost-- read the chapters. This is often the first thing that goes out the window as stress levels build throughout the year, but even just reading without note-taking will improve your quiz and test scores dramatically. Second, at least make strong attempts on the homework, and make sure you answer every question, even if your answers are weak. Mr. Babichenko is wont to drop your score on homework (we're talking 2 out of 5 points) for incomplete assignments. Finally, make friends in your class. It will make the experience that much more bearable, not to mention last-minute study sessions and group projects are so much more fun with people you like. And don't doubt yourself when taking this class-- you absolutely can do it! I kept at it and did very well, and so can you. Good luck!

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class is very intuitive and fun. The teacher is also great and makes history not boring.

    Course highlights:

    I learned to write better and faster. I learned more about history and in a college format so that i had to learn how to take notes properly.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just always stay on top of the work and be organized it is way easier when you don't procrastinate.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I struggled with this class mostly because I had an issue remembering locations. I could learn the content but then mix up the dates and look completely incompetent.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a lot of insight on the history of the world outside of America. You go very in debt with the facts and learn different perspectives in the context of different time periods which is the most interesting part. History does in fact repeat itself in some ways!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure your notes are always thorough and stay on top of the coursework.
