    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Not only is the teacher (Ms. Morales) really organized and fun, but she also helps students every time one needs the help and is willing to stay extra time after office hours to help all students when notified. The course is divided into sections throughout the year that make it simple for students to understand each of them and know what will be taught next. There is many research in class and research you as a student have to do personally, which is a great skill that I have learned taking this course. Overall, many important informational lessons are learned about the government, there are many interactive activities, debates, information that will help you in the future like how to manage money, and even college-like lectures to help prepare and give the college insight.

    Course highlights:

    One of my personal highlights of this course was having an activity called "current events" every Friday. This weekly event takes time in the beginning of class to discuss current events that may be happening around the country or in the world. As a class, we then research the event, learn about it, discuss it, and collectively think how to tie it back to the government. This was absolutely fun since many people would bring interesting current events and the discussions we would have were interesting and funny. One incredible thing that I learned was from participating in a "fake election". Every student was to have a role in this election process. For example, there were interest groups, people running for presidents, campaign managers, etc. As a person running for the next president, I had to learn how to appeal to all interest groups, the media, my democratic party, and my intended audience to have them vote for me through the speeches I wrote and delivered. I learned how to master rhetoric and presentation skills.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always complete as much work in class as you will have plenty of help from peers and the teacher. Some assignments might take more time to complete than others, especially research papers, so time management is an important skill to learn and practice. Lastly, an organized binder and work will help you know when a deadline is approaching to not lower your grade.
