    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course opened my eyes to so many different aspects of American history, including topics in culture, race, and class that I never would have had the opportunity to explore at my old school! Though this course is a requirement, try to view it as a way to delve into aspects of history that you're not as familiar with, and it has the potential to be a rewarding experience.

    Course highlights:

    When I first started this course, I came from a predominantly white, middle-class school, and we were taught history through textbooks. However, after a few short weeks, I realized that Amstud was very different - in class discussions were a huge part of the course, we regularly took notes and did readings, and we rarely opened the textbook. It was a great experience, and I enjoyed the opportunity to actually talk about pressing topics in American history with my teachers and peers rather than reading them out of a bland, outdated textbook. This course really helped me to expand my global/world view and reconsider many of the things I had been taught as a child regarding U.S. history.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Studying in groups for tests and quizzes is really a must if you want to excel and retain information. During the beginning of the year, I tried to do everything on my own and maintaining a good grade was very difficult. However, once I began collaborating with my peers, my test/quiz scores improved dramatically, and with time I was able to achieve the grade that I desired. Also, be sure to participate in class discussions and input some logical thought each day to raise your participation grade!
