Really fun, makes learning a good experience. Is a bit unclear with communicating due dates but its not a big problem
As an IB student that was forced to take Larry's dreaded class junior year, I can tell you it is indeed one helluva class. Larry is about the biggest history nut known to man, and he often goes on interesting tangents during his powerpoint lectures about less-than-G-rated themes, which can help keep things interesting! He is so ready to give you extra help and answer questions if you need it, but in return he expects dogged work ethic. I would recommend reading notes every night for sure.
IDs required are of no use. Five for the exam was achieved, but at a steep price; sleep lost with this class was not worth the effort, as work put in did not equate to results gotten out, unless you had eidetic memory. Williamson is for masochists.
APUSH is the hardest class you will ever take, and its ridiculously demanding, but mr willie is a great teacher and if you work hard in the class, you will do well on the exam. couldn't break a c but I made a 4! So, definitely worth a try.
AP United States History is an intense class, but not as impossible as everyone makes it sound. My final grade was a high B and I was a little disappointed to receive a 3 on the AP Exam...His teaching method is basically just reading his summarized notes of the textbook every day (up to the week of the exam) and then giving very picky quizzes. To anyone about to take this class - the answers to the reading quizzes are on the internet, go find those. For the major quizzes, just study key terms.
Mr. Willie is a good teacher, his class is ridiculously demanding and to earn a passing grade one must put forth serious effort. However, I enjoyed his class and wouldn't change my decision to take th
He is a great teacher who loves what he does and that makes his class absolutely wonderful.
He was hands down the best teacher I've ever had. I would take his class over and over again if I could. I learned so much and actually enjoyed it. And the IDs are actually useful.
Awesome teacher, a difficult but entertaining class- definitely worth taking. IDs make a huge difference in your grade.
He is awesome I just had him and I want him again! but it's soo hard only 2 ppl. made a's in my class i was not one of them! LOVE ya big willy!
Mr Williamson is a great teacher and very funny. You just have to try very hard to get a good grade. Study your notes, read the chapters, do your ID's, and you'll be fine.
The class is difficult, but it's worth it. Mr. Williamson is an excellent teacher and his class is entertaining.
You have to be like a fricken genius to pass the class but I love williamson!
he's a cool guy, i love his anecdotes. it's really easy to make an alright grade it just takes twice as much effort to make a good one
mr. williamson is the funniest guy. it's great that he breaks up his lectures with these hilarious stories. a lot of work, but a lot of fun.
A very hard class, but you'll definitely know the material. Do your ID's, there are very few grades. His tests make the ap seem so easy, which is a good thing.
If you duck out of this class you'll regret it; you'll be missing the AP US experience.
He's got a difficult class, but he's a fun guy, and always willing to help. You'll miss him next year if you take IB 20th Century! ;-)
The class is *not* easy... but it is through. Best advice: keep up with the assignments, and if you start falling behind - let him know. He'll try to help.
US History and AP US History teacher. An entertaining and witty lecturer. He'll work you like a dog, but you'll thank him as you laugh at the easy AP exam.
