    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course with Professor Brown because it takes the knowledge about American government we have from high school and builds on it. I guess that is the expectation for most GEC courses, but Professor Brown's class requires active participation through simulations, which gives a student a glimpse at what is expected of them on a professional level, GEC course do not do that.

    Course highlights:

    I believe the highlight of this course was the Congressional simulation project which we worked on throughout the semester. Each student was required to choose a congressional district from any state, and then create a campaign video building on the district party's platform. Later on in the semester the students had to write a bill intending to resolve a problem in that district, and then we argued on behalf of our bills in a simulation which reflected the process of law making in congress. In a sense, we got to be congress men and women for a semester.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Taking good notes is the best way to do well in this class. Professor Brown goes over anything and everything the students need to know in class. It is extremely important to be present, and if a student is easily distracted then I suggest they sit in the front.
