Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I'm saying that I would recommend this course because of the material that we covered well I learned a lot. It was election season so it was a little crazy but I learned a lot about how our government works and my rights as a citizen. The down side it that while Mrs. Swartz is a great person and teacher her time management skills are not the best. We wasted multiple days on things that were frivolous. I think a lot of that is because this was the teachers first semester teaching AP Gov instead of regular Gov. for example, today, was the last day of the course and we covered all of the civil liberates and civil rights SCOTUS cases. ALso, we also did the whole Bill of Rights Monday yet, spent a whole day doing an activity on gerrymandering and another making a video that utilized 5 vocab words. That stuff is okay to do, just not in an AP class.
The course was broken into three basic chunks: the constitution, the government and the media. We went in depth on all there but spent much more time on the media than we should have because it was election season. We skimped over the bill of right and civil liberties because it was pushed to the end.

Advice for students:
Be prepared for vocabulary. Make a study group and split the terms up.
