This particular section of AP European History spent time on the inner lawn of HCHS; I am a sucker to say the least. They needed additional motivation on what is an absolutely gorgeous day. We discussed World War II and the motivations that drove the likes of Hitler, Mussolini, and Stalin to seek greater power; it is safe to say that I hate talking about battles and weapons. Thus I do not cover such topics in any of my courses. Next years’ enrollment for both my AP US and AP Euro courses are looking pretty good. My department chair and the academic counseling office has worked really hard to keep my classes small. I like the courses that I am currently teaching; however, I do have hopes of creating a course on black studies. You can see my Euro syllabus here. We are lucky here at HCHS; we have a great campus with excellent facilities.
