    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course just because I had so much fun learning the material. The teacher really helped to make sure we were completely prepared when it came to the AP test.

    Course highlights:

    I was able to really learn about the US government and everything that it involves. One thing is specific we were able to learn how elections were run, especially because I took this course during a major election year.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Taking notes and doing flashcards helped incredibly, especially with all the different vocabulary words.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This class was super interesting as I was opened up to the political world right around the election! We learned about the different political parties, styles of polls, different styles of laws, and so much more.

    Course highlights:

    There were too many highlights to pick just one :) My teacher, Mr. Larsen, was super super passionate for political life, and strongly encouraged our involvement in the "civics lifestyle" by going to debate watch parties, voting, and other activities that required the students to use information learned in class to apply in their daily lives. We learned about the different ways of reaching our country through media sources and also how the federal government had different powers than the local and state government (federalism).

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    DO THE ARCADE! Every teacher is different, but I know that Mr. Larsen requires his students to fill out the ARCADE of topics learned in that unit. By completing the ARCADE, you can see how the information learned in class transfers into real world situations and how our country reflects the key ideas of AP government.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The way Mr. Larsen helps kids become not just more involved but excited about politics is remarkable.

    Course highlights:

    Through Mr. Larsen's AP Government class, I took my existing interest and knowledge of politics to the next level, learning in detail how different functions of the U.S. Government operate, in ways I had never known.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My best advice is to go in with an open mind because the class truly is extremely interesting.
