    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the homework is fairly straightforward and everything can be found in the textbook. I however would recommend taking the class with a different professor. Tom Lansford seems unwilling to give a 100% on any grade, including discussion boards.

    Course highlights:

    I learned more about why our government is the way it is today. I would recommend the textbook We the People to students that aren't even taking the class. I started the class not enjoying or caring about the history of our government to reading the text even when a section isn't assigned.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the book and memorize something if it is listed out. It is most likely on the test. (Ex Four parts to....) Also read the study guide, most of the questions come directly from it.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you think you understand the function of government, think again. What we learned in our first 12 years of school doesn't even brush the surface of exactly what goes on. As a citizen, it's our responsibility to understand who and what we're voting for, and to not let polarizing issues stand in our way of making an informed, rational decision. This course will force you to think politically, and may change your views on some issues. Beware though, the course is very writing intensive. An a average will come at the expense of around 3500 words each week.

    Course highlights:

    From the intentions of our forefathers, to how the Constitution is interpreted and enforced in modern time, I've head my eyes opened. A lot of common misconceptions about how the government works were explained. The text book was better than most at explaining complicated subjects, while still remaining relatively interesting and easy to read.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to write. Every module have a list of 8-12 questions that need to be answered, and a few sentences won't cut it. Expect an A worthy assignment to consist of 3-4000 words each week.
