    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it is a super interesting topic and the teacher has a really engaging way of presenting the information. Especially with this being an election year, this class has been very informative and helpful in explaining all the different aspects of american government. She has also already done a great job preparing us for the AP exam, it's a topic we discuss every day in class.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this class was learning about the election at the same time as it was happening in real life. We watched the debates in class and even evaluated campaign commercials. We learned all about the electoral college, voting demographics, and so much more.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to do well on all the vocab quizzes and tests because that mostly what your grade is based off of. Doing all the assigned reading and reviewing for tests is important!

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    AP Government for me was easy, fun, and engaging. My teacher was a lot of fun and did a very good job at making the class relevant. I believe this class is one of the few in high school where the material, not just the acquired study skills learned and developed to retain said material. Government affects us all, and taking this class invoked the essence of that fact, and helped me to be more certain that I can fully cooperate with my civic duty of voting and having political efficacy, with an educated knowledge of what I am voting for and in.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were learning relevant course cases, getting to see how bills are passed and learn in a fun manner the functions of the United States government. We watched clips from The Colbert Report, The Daily Show, and Last Week Tonight with John Oliver to help us learn campaign financing and other issues. What struck me at the time was how easily I could compare this to the ongoing presidential election, (I took this in fall of 2015), we learned about political ideologies, campaign financing, presidential responsibility, voting rights, to name a few relevant topics.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Honestly, this class is pretty easy, if you want an AP that's laid back and still allots you the credit and prestige of taking an advanced placement class. tl;dr An easy A you will enjoy getting that reaps the benefits of any other AP class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is an important class because all citizens need to be educated on the government and the way it works. Doing this will allow you to be a good citizen and stand up for what you believe regardless of what that is.

    Course highlights:

    I was able to learn about the house of representatives and the senate and the ways in which they function.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is important that you go into this class willing to learn and able to have at least a basic background knowledge of U.S government.
