    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend it because it gave me knowledge I use every day in adult conversations on the happenings of the world and in politics. It gave me the knowledge I needed to actively participate in discussions and not just sound intelligent, but be intelligent.

    Course highlights:

    For me, the highlight of the course was understanding the cause and effect of certain court cases and other decisions in the formation of rules and government.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Use flashcards. Always always always use flashcards. Make mind maps. Be an involved learner and DON'T check out. Ever.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because the class teaches one about the country's origins and current events. It inspires and teaches students about how to get involved in government, and it helps install political efficacy and it creates well rounded students.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about how I can be an involved citizen and I learned about the way government works. A highlight was doing a project that simulated an interest group.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be sure to read the book and take notes. Pay attention in class.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I believe that taking an advanced course on the way our government is important. It is important for all students in the U.S. to have a great understanding of how our government works and why it is set up the way it is. It is a fun course where you learn about your rights as a citizen and how our government has come to be what it is today! You'll also learn about current events in the political world that the U.S. is involved in.

    Course highlights:

    It is a fun course where you get to dive into your studies by creating your own amendments and simulating a mock Senate. Most students will learn about the Federalist Papers, and spend a good amount of time studying the amendments to the Constitution. It is definitely the class for any student who likes to read and be involved in their courses.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To be successful in any AP class, you must have an understanding of how you study best. Whether that is highlighting and rereading, or taking notes during lectures, or simply just listening to the teacher during lectures, you must know how you retain information best because AP classes are fast paced. Above all else, study! Study during your off-periods, before you go to bed, during homerooms. Any time that you have to sit down and dedicate to this class will benefit you in the long run.
