    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is great! I normally don't like history, but this isn't all about dead people, it's about rights and more about present day! You won't have to learn about too many dead presidents or people. You are learning about modern day a lot, and you are learning about rights and needs that you can do to change something. Also, you get to learn what the government, police, etc have over you, and what you can say and do to show them that you know what you're saying. There are some bad forces out there, and you taking civics can teach you what you can say or do in the action that something bad and/or good is happening.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about my rights. I learned what I can and can not say to a cop, and what they do have against me. I learned that the police can not have a search warrant for a whole area, they can have a search area for a very specific area. I learned so much about the election whether it's the United States President Election or the Aspen Mayor Election. I know more Amendments than just the first and second.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise you to just pay attention because this Civics class went super fast! The teacher went super fast, so even a blink would miss two slides of the presentation. Take notes! And don't be afraid to approach the teacher in need of help on assignments.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Politics are such a huge part of society, but as a high school student, I didn't know much about it. This course taught me everything I need to know about our government from the constitution to the controversies of today, all of which is valuable information that pertains to all of our lives.

    Course highlights:

    Especially with our most recent election, we had daily discussions about the successes and flaws of our government system, over a large range of political issues and controversies. We gave our opinions, discussed solutions, and even created a project on an issue we feel most passionate about. Everything I learned in that class is highly valuable and pertains to almost all American citizens.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you choose not to care, then this class may seem like a boring waste of time. But if you show interest, participate, and give just a little bit of thought, it is super interesting information and knowledge to have.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher was great, and civics is one of the most important classes a person could take. It's very important to learn more about our country and how democracy works, along with politics and how our country progressed and blossomed into the great nation it is today.

    Course highlights:

    I learned more about politics, democratic structure, judicial, legislative, and executive branches. I also learned more about the House of Representatives and the members of Senate, along with their jobs and how they help keep this country together and work for the better of the people.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Really pay attention to what is going on. It's also important because much of what is learned in this class is applicable to life outside of the class. As long as you do the work, and fathom what is going on then not only will you be successful but also gain a deeper understanding on certain topics.
