    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    AP GoPo taught me to be engaged in the world. Ms. Hooper pushed me to think critically and to participate in my community. I was able to connect what I was learning in the classroom to real life events. I learned information that has allowed me to hold genuine conversation with the adults in my life. This was the most informationally rich and relevant class I have ever taken.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the basic structure of US Government. The course covers the workings of the legislative, executive, and judicial branches. I have a working knowledge of Congress, the presidency, the court system, the bureaucracy, mass media, and political socialization. My favorite unit was the unit on Congress. I feel like it helped me understand where laws come from, who the important political actors are, and how I can get involved. I learned that political apathy is privilege in action and that my participation in politics is what will make this world a better place.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to read and be ready to take notes. I spent about an hour on each section of notes and it paid off. This was more than most, but I earned near perfect score on every quiz and test. The more engaged you are in your reading and note taking, the easier it will be to study. (In fact, I hardly studied and earned a 5 on the AP Exam!). Paying attention to your textbook is the number one way to absorb information and be able to participate in thought-provoking discussion. If you try, you will fall in love with this class.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you like a challenge i would definitely recommend this course, it can be extremely difficult, and if you do not read the text book, you will more than likely be completely lost.

    Course highlights:

    Honestly and truly i was one of the students who did not read the book however i did pay attention in class, and i feel i learned more from the lecture than i would have from reading the book. I also do not particularly care for history unless it is history after the 1900's or military history. so the most i retained form the course came when we started discussing the 1900's and so on, my favorite lesson would have to be the cold war era. the totalitarian idea spread, "Big brother is watching you", all of it surprisingly fascinated me.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You must read your textbook. if you have questions ask them, do not be afraid to get involved in the class.

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it really challenges you on both your knowledge and work ethics

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to be more organized with homework and how a desirable grade does not come easy and one must work hard for it

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared for the amount of reading that needs to be done. Do not procrastinate at all because the work WILL catch up on you and you will be even more stressed.
