    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it gets you completely caught up with current events and more thoroughly understand the events taking place around you. While this class could have been rather boring this teacher puts an amusing twist on most lectures to gain envolvement and perk interest.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the interactive lectures. I learned an abundance of history about the country I loved in from before george washington gained presidency to the current events happening today,

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would totally recommend this course. It is amazing how much stuff one doesn't learn about in regular history classes compared to AP US History. Even though it is a fairly hard class that pretty much expects hours and hours of studying and preparation for, this class opens up your eyes to why America is the way it is. Through this course, you learn how to understand how our nation's history affects​ our daily life and our future.

    Course highlights:

    In regular history classes, you learn the basic and main points in American history, but through this course, you learn what beliefs and visions the American people had and have for the future. In this class, you learn how what happened in the past will affect your present and future, how even one small mistake in word choice can start a war, and how every choice you make has a repercussion. Prior to taking this course, I did not like history whatsoever, I thought it was boring, useless and I could not remember all of those stupid dates and names anyway, but not even a month after I started attending this class I realized that my assumptions and ideas were all wrong. Through this course, I discovered my love for history and understanding what led things to be the way that they are today. Even though it was so hard that it led me to tears several times, this course is essential to understanding the world and life in America.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Start studying from the beginning of the year. Don't slack off like I did and expect your brain to be able to cram all of American history in one week prior to the test. After every few class lectures, go over your notes, compare them to the book, watch documentaries about the subjects, and just overall study throughout the year. Even though America is a fairly new country, there is a LOT of stuff that you have to know in order to pass the AP Test, and you can only remember it if you take the time to review everything often. In note taking be organized. If you can use a computer so that you can get more information down during lectures, and be descriptive in your notes. Even if some detail is seemingly useless to write down, make sure that you write it down, you never know when that may pop up again down the line. Over all pay attention in class and do your homework, you know the basics, and study on your free time. It is going to pay off when you get that 5 on the test.
