    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    She was one of the most enthusiastic and unbiased teachers I have had the opportunity to learn from. She made the course material more interesting for me. It is a heavily lecture-based course, but also includes a lot of time for in class discussions.

    Course highlights:

    One of my favorite parts of this course was the mock passing of a bill through the "House" (our class). It was a very hands-on experience for me because we re-enacted each part of passing a bill in the house chamber with our own bill proposals.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the readings before class! The reading quizzes are planned, but you definitely have to have done the read and studied the notes from the previous class in order to do well. They are a great review and affect your grade more than you think! Every point helps!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course exposes you to the general foundation of the United States government.

    Course highlights:

    This class made me aware of how unknowledgeable I was on the structure of our federal government. The powers of the executive, legislative, and judicial branch is knowledge that I learned that will be valued for the rest of my time as a United States Citizen.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up with the study guide. After every class, write down the definitions of the terms on the study guide. This will help you when it is time for exams. Also, use the text book to add information to each of the terms.
