    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because it teaches you basic rights you have as a citizen of the United States and you learn more about how our country works (politically).

    Course highlights:

    I learned about my basic rights, how to deal with police encounters, and was able to learn and get different perspectives of what was then, current political issues.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attend to all classes ! It is always very interesting and all test come from the notes done in class by instructor.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course solely because of Ryer's teaching methods. Her teaching skills allow you to understand the topic so smoothly. Group work allows you to teach what you know, therefore you learn by teaching. Solo work allows you to find things out on your own in her class.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of taking this class is the eye-opening truth you will uncover.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of the readings, and don't be afraid to ask questions. She knows what she is talking about!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I have enjoyed this class thus far. I am taking it online through the school's Lobos Apps and I have found this course easy to navigate and easy to understand. The teacher is very helpful and has given an adequate amount of work to where I feel like I am actually learning the material. It is also very engaging.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoy the weekly discussions and weekly news article reports. Those give me an excellent chance to interact positively with my other online classmates. I am learning plenty about our government and the governments of other nations. With the weekly news reports I also learn about other political current affairs.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say that staying organized and staying on top of your assignments is the best idea. I write out what assignment I need to get finished on what day of the week that fits in with my work and parenting schedule.
