    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Ladd is a fantastic teacher who knows everything about this subject and more. He is constantly applying the course material to current events and is incredibly helpful if you are willing to ask him for his help

    Course highlights:

    Gov: General knowledge about how government works - the different branches, how they work together and their individual powers and limitations, how the US government has grown over the years and what it is like compared to other countries, and much more. Macro: different economic theories, how econ applies to the real world, how the government uses economic policies to fix the economy, what are the results of economic policies domestically and in foreign countries.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are willing to put in the time and effort for this class you will get a lot out of it. Mr. Ladd has a lot to offer if you come to his office hours (before school, lunch, and after school almost every day). Be sure to review the problems you miss on tests as some variation of those problems will appear on the final. This is one of those classes where you HAVE to show up every day or you will miss course material, and everything he says is on the tests. If you are willing to work hard you will succeed!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Ladd is a fantastic teacher who knows the curriculum inside and out, and much more. He applies real-life situations to what we are learning in class every day, and I have become so much more aware of how our government works, how to interpret news, etc. It's incredibly difficult, but if you are willing to put in the time and effort (and take advantage of his office hours, which he has a LOT of), you will be set! Somehow I am pulling a B in this class, which is arguably the hardest on our campus. Good luck!!

    Course highlights:

    Gov: Constitution studies, Political behaviors and beliefs, Political Parties, Interest Groups, How media affects politics, Institutions of Government Macro: Basic Economic Theories, Fiscal and Monetary Policies, Macroeconomic measurements

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are an average A/B student (in regular classes), consider taking this and maybe only one other AP class. There is not a lot of homework, so that means a lot of paying close attention in class, printing notes before lectures to follow along, and lots of time spent on the workbook outside of class. Sit down and talk with him about the class! He is almost always available so don't worry about getting help outside of class. Even if you think you have the curriculum down, go in for review for every unit! Also - you don't need to go in with prior experience! I knew almost nothing and was incredibly embarrassed to be in a class with Y&G and Comp Civics classes, but he really gets down to the basics and then builds back up, so you will be taken care of.
