APUSH-ing Our Way to the Top 

Every year, juniors sign up for APUSH - or advanced placement United States History - thinking it will be like any other AP class. However they couldn’t be more wrong.

At Champion High school we have so many dedicated teachers that will do anything to help their students. Included in these amazing educators is Coach Gillette. In addition to being an assistant coach for football and swimming, Coach Gillette holds tutorials before and after school to help students learn on a higher level. With a lower student to teacher ratio and a more relaxed environment, the tutoring sessions have proven to be highly beneficial.

Another way that Coach Gillette stands out is his teaching style. Every unit includes debates, Socratic seminars, and notecards. Debates include a reading featuring opposing viewpoints that students take as their own and debate with other classmates. Socratic seminars help to review the lesson by engaging students in conversation about the topic under study. Notecards are a series of dates, names, and events that are crucial to the subject that students are asked to define. These are only a select few of the ways that Coach Gillette sets himself above the rest.

If you are an underclassmen, I highly recommend the class! As a senior who has gone through the class and taken the AP test, I can personally say that it takes a lot of dedication and hard work but the skills you take away, such as an improved study ethic, are more than worth it!
