    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The information isn't that hard to learn and the teacher is amazing. It's one of the easier APs to take your senior year and you will not regret it. I honestly feel bad for the kids who chose to take regular civics because they were bogged down with length projects. As long as you study, you'll be fine.

    Course highlights:

    Although many people gloss over politics, it's important to be aware of how your government affects you and how you can affect your government. It really widens your view of the world we live in and people should be informed. I went from someone who thought that the government was too complicated to be understood to someone who had the tools to elicit change. Those who are informed have power.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention. At everything. It's a lot to listen to, I know. Either actively annotate Mr. Ladd's notes or take your own. I did the latter and performed fine, but if you're willing to put in the paper, ink, and time, his notes are helpful as well. Especially when it comes to lists of things to memorize. All things considered, it's not that difficult as long as you use common sense and listen in class. You don't need to read the textbook; it's dated anyways. Listen to everything Mr. Ladd tells you, do all the things he advises and you'll pass the class with flying colors.
