    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class consists of a singularly great teacher who takes a very direct and confrontational approach to teaching and familiarizing his students with government and politics, which uniquely forced me to reconsider my positions via argumentation. Additionally, the exploration of various issues and their history broadened the scope of my personal politics. If you don't mind the occasional reinforcement of gender stereotypes in the teacher's incessantly mirthful and sarcastic attitude, I'm sure this class has a lot to give.

    Course highlights:

    I remember distinctly all of our major projects, like the survey and Supreme Court final. I learned a lot about the details of how our government works, as in Iron Triangles, Lobbying, Congress, Campaigning, Gerrymandering, and the Apportionment System. The personal highlight of this class was writing up an amicus curiae brief for our position for a mock Supreme Court case, then arguing my case as an attorney for the ACLU in front of 12 of my classmates who were assigned as the judges.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to read and take notes on any chapters we read, and go the extra mile when defending your position in assignments, as Carp will recognize and comment on it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I'd recommend this class because it is very informative on how our government really effects each citizen and how current politics have evolved to where our society is at now. It is super easy to relate it to my daily life!

    Course highlights:

    Not only did I gain a better knowledge of our government system and how it works, but through big group projects I gained experience in presentation skills and how to work as a team to accomplish college level tasks.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    The course itself is not very difficult, but the reading is everything! Most points are awarded on tests/quizzes/FRQs, so actually reading and retaining what you've read will really help you to achieve the grade you want in the course.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    AP Government expands and broadens your learning horizons on the government. When I first walked in I knew nothing but now I know so much about the US government and this course has helped me choose my major and career path.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were definitely learning about everything our governments does and is capable of doing. You learn all of the behind the scenes things that take place that many Americans don't know about.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study and keep up with the work and you will be fine. Also if you don't understand what something means from the start I recommend looking it up.
