    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to any student looking to expand their knowledge on the Texas Government because it requires you to study the notes and really build your understanding on how the government works. The professor also does an excellent job of engaging the class throughout the entire session and being very open to questions and concerns over assignments or grades.

    Course highlights:

    This course tremendously increased my understanding on Texas government - everyday when I got home from school, I was excited to share what I had learned with my parents; I learned about each branch of the government and the roles they play as well as individual members of the government such as the Governor and Speaker of the House. I also gained a better understanding on the voting system in Texas and how it compares to the federal system. Overall, this course has helped me become a more involved member of the community and has allowed me to better understand situations I hear about in the news.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this course, you need to have faith in the professor's teaching methods and pay attention to the crazy anecdotes he tells - they will really help you understand the notes. But in order to retain the information effectively, it is important to look back at the notes and study them for about 30 minutes each day. Don't wait until the last day before the test to start trying to remember all the information!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is an awesome opportunity for students to learn about the history of the US in a good environment. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to expand their knowledge on our country and how it came to be.

    Course highlights:

    One of the highlights of this course was when we learned about the Populist Party. The professor had a very unique and interesting way of teaching us about the Populists and what they valued. I learned that the Wizard of Oz was written to depict the lives of the Populist Party, and I learned about various aspects of the movie that depict components of Populism.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Students need to come into this course open minded in order to succeed. It can be very eye opening if you'll accept the professors lessons without judgement. Some people have trouble adapting to the teaching style of professors, and Mr. White's style is very unique, but allowing yourself to be drawn into the lesson will really add to your knowledge attainment!

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the instructor is incredibly intelligent, likeable, and teaches from a non-biased point of view. The course is interesting and challenging enough to make it educational, and I felt I have learned a great deal while taking it.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the instructor and the way he presented the material. Over the course of the Fall semester, I have learned about the origins of the U.S. Constitution, the branches of government, and the various ways in which politics operate.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My personal recommendations for success in this course include reading from the textbook and taking thorough notes in class. These are the two most important ways to make good grades on the tests and retain information.
