    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend because it allows students, especially my growing generation, to get involved more in politics and government so that we can alter or improve the system to ensure the prosperity of the generations to come.

    Course highlights:

    So far, the course focused on critical thinking when applying the government process and system to real-life applications that are going on currently. For instance, one of the concepts that were taught was "De facto discrimination" which meant the discrimination what was put into law, such as the Jim Crow era. Discussions were made regarding the current presidency compared to others, and how it was essential to our understanding of our country.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    What I did to succeed was re-write my lecture notes, read the pages assigned in our books and annotate the texts to understand as they provide examples of concepts discussed in class to better our understanding of the material.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This particular teacher and class size isn't the most effective when learning such a difficult amount of information. The class size is distracting and often the professor doesn't give a in depth perception of what you should be learning about.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course would probably be half of the learning is on you. I didn't learn much of anything I didn't know previously.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you can take this class with a different professor. Also keep up on the readings and study them vigorously. Depending on the professor tests count, so you really need to study! Talk with your professor immediately upon you having problems with retaining the information from clarification from them. Go to study sessions if you can.
