Lots of Writing
Many Small Assignments
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course to ANY student who is attending VA State as a political science major because it gives you an in-depth analysis of the psychology of government, politics, and the constitution. Within this class, you will do so much more than read a textbook, but actually have the opportunity to freely express (both verbally and in writing.) your feelings about the over arching themes of each chapter in the required textbook. I LOVED THIS CLASS!
One of the most unforgettable things we discussed int his class pertained to our final writing paper. The assignment was for us to share our thoughts as to whether or not we thought that the Constitution of the United States was a living, breathing document. We were able to use topics that we previously discussed throughout the course to support our analysis, or, use any other knowledge that we learned on our own.

Advice for students:
Make sure that whatever chapter is being discussed in class, read it in its ENTIRETY!! On several occasions, I didn't find it important to read the chapters discussed in class, and I would find myself in a pickle when I came in for class and there was a POP Quiz or graded Chapter Responses. PLEASE! Take the class seriously, read the textbook, take notes/ annotations and the class will be a BREEZE for you
