Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Being able to have a teacher so passionate and encouraging as Mrs.Lynch made not only me but the entire class feel more invested in learning the material. As a society we often forget that out politics have an impact not only in America but the whole world. We don't really recognize how policies effect us in our everyday lives and most of us don't even understand how policies are made. By learning more about how our government is structured we can hopefully make it better and more beneficial for everyone.
I've gained so much from this course, once you finish this class you feel like you have a greater understanding on the government you live in. Not only do you gain a ton of knowledge about the different branches of government, how laws are made, and how lobby groups impact politics but you also gain a strong work ethic. This class isn't extremely hard but it isn't easy either, it's the type of class that pushes you to motivate yourself to work. Ms. Lynch isn't going to hold your hand, she's going to treat you like a college student and if you mess around you'll be toast. The class overall is fun and it's a great opportunity for students to learn about their own potential and gain higher level thinking skills.

Advice for students:
To any students taking this class ALWAYS do the reading! I can not stress to you guys how important it is for you to do the nightly reading because if you don't you'll be confused the next day. One thing I wish I would have done more was study the terms and make yourself flash cards especially on court cases. Make sure you complete and do the study guide before the test. The study guides tend to be long and sometimes the questions are difficult to answer so try to make it a group effort with fellow class mates. Don't be shy to divide the questions among classmates, it's honestly a life saver!
