Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Intro to American Government was a blast with Dr. Shrader. If you're searching for an involved, knowledgable, and excited political scientist, he's your guy. Not to mention the fun and innovative assignments, including a Presidential Candidate draft/presentation, as well as the variety of local political speakers coming to class, this class marked off all the boxes when it came to being incredible!
I had the opportunity to present a report on Dr. Rand Paul, and I really enjoyed researching, writing, and presenting to my classmates. Another great moment in the semester was when Dr. Shrader invited the leaders of each major political party in our state to class (Libertarian, Democrat, and Republican) for a friendly debate and forum. It was the first time in our state's history that all three were in the same place at the same time.

Advice for students:
Make sure you bring a pen and paper, and cozy up to the professor. He's a great resource outside the classroom, and he is always willing to correspond and meet with you. In addition, the reading material is nothing you can't handle, so give it a go and see what you can learn!
