    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Gladden is an incredible professor. She knows how to create a fun and active learning environment. You will actually learn many things in her class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about things I didn't learn in U.S. History my junior year. I learned how to write research papers using footnotes and how not to plagiarize a paper.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    When doing research for the moot court, go into detail about your topic. For the exams, just study the chapters and listen to her presentations and you will do just fine.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Clayton could be a great teacher but he's way to fast when he's going over the lessons. But the pace isn't why I wouldn't recommend it; he just jumps around so much he make the subject confusing so its hard to grasp and understand what he's teaching because you get lost.

    Course highlights:

    One highlight of this course was the fact that the lesson going over electoral college was planned over the election week so not only did we learn about it in class, we got to see it in action as well.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read! Read! Read! That's what you have to do, if you don't you won't pass, unless you have common sense in this subject

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    First of all this professor is honestly the best! I love her! Government can be the most BORING THING EVER but she makes it so much fun. Her tests are kind of lengthy but she gives you a review that is basically the test and you can find the answers in her slides so if you just do the reviews and study you'll be fine. Second, while people want to complain about the Moot Court she sets up it's actually really helpful. You learn a lot about a topic that you may have never known before and you look at both sides to understand the argument. The 20 pages of the Moot Court suck but you have a partner and you submit the paper in pieces so it's not stressful. In the end you argue your case and it's like an actual court case. This really helps you experience a bit of the government in the world today. Taking this course id definitely worth it. You have fun but you also learn and that's what is most important.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a whole new understanding of our government and how it works. Mrs. Gladden presented everything in a way we understood, she made metaphors and examples from our lives to help us better understand. She helped us understand that there's a way to be considerate of others while also sticking to your views. The highlights of this course would have to be the class discussions. Mrs. Gladden would bring up a topic and let the class give their opinions and some of the topics brought up interesting points and conversations, we even managed to make Professor Gladden herself want to look into some of our ideas. Overall this class accomplishes a lot of the teaching curriculum and this very important. I enjoyed having this class, it opened my eyes to a view of the world I had yet to see.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the reviews!!! Seriously guys her reviews are basically her tests and they aren't even hard questions to answer. Just look at the slides. If you can't find something you can us the Find button in the slides and search keywords that will send you directly to the answer she wants you to have. Of course after you do the review you should study the answers (can't use the review on the test). Come up with memory devices and highlight important information. Pay attention to dates and definitely pay attention to the order of the questions in the review, often times she keep the questions in her test in the same order as the questions on her review. So, for example, if the 5th question on your review mentions the “rights, duties, and obligations” of the Presidency then you can practically bet that number 5 on your test will have something to do with that question as well. In the words of Professor Gladden, herself, "If you don't do the review and study, you won't pass." Do the review guys, it'll leave less stress on you if you do.
