I don't have time to write a well thought out explanation for this because I have more APUSH homework to do, but the level of work assigned in this class is absurdly high. The district has a policy that students should be spending around 1 hour a day on each of their classes. This is a fair amount in my opinion, because it still allows plenty of other time for personal activities, recreation, ect. However in APUSH, I find myself spending 2+ hours doing homework which is sometimes necessary. APUSH is the only class which I am inevitably behind in, due to the extensive homework requirements. I find it hard to do activities such as playing instruments for band, or even doing other homework for my other classes. Some might say that the extensive homework is just a part of being an AP student. This can be true to some extent, but not on this extreme level. From my experience in AP Euro, Homework was assigned on a much more manageable basis, with some nights completely without an assignment, and this encouraged a much more relaxed learning experience. The excessive amount of homework could also be a burden to those who take part in sports, or other time consuming activities. Maintaining a proper schedule in accordance to the APUSH requirements can be next to impossible for said athletic students, but it can also be a huge burden to those who are not in sports. Some students at this time may also be learning how to drive, which can take up a great portion of one's day.
