    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it gives you insight on the history of our country. It also gives you a chance to uncover the truth about some things history books don't want you to know. While Us History seems like a very straight forward course you will most definitely learn about things you didn't know about before.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was getting to go in depth about the injustices different groups of people have gone through throughout US History.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to do your notes and read each chapter.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    AP US Government and Politics has been my favorite academic class that I've taken in high school. This class pushes me to think, make connections, and manage my time effectively. I've learned how to study, absorb information, and apply my learning to current events. I genuinely care about the world around me and have an understanding of how our government works.

    Course highlights:

    I'm still taking this course, so I haven't learned everything yet. However, I can talk about the first semester of the course. It was fascinating to take government and politics during an election year, as we were able to see the textbook come to life every day. We started the year learning about the basics of government: the constitution, our rights, the branches of government, and more. Then, we moved into understanding the American electorate, the influence of money in politics, the electoral process, the value of political involvement and why America is so disengaged, the media, and public opinion. My favorite unit was the one in which we covered presidential elections. I felt strongly about the 2016 election and was proud of the fact that I could intelligently discuss current events with my community.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Absolutely take this course, to start! You will become a more caring citizen and you will want to be involved in the world. This is a very text-heavy class. Make sure you take thorough notes in a system that helps you and do it on time. I learned to space my notes out in a way that wasn't overwhelming and I learned incredibly fast. Prepare for exams in advance! There's a phenomenal amount of material that you will have to know, including specifics. Make sure you know all of your vocabulary and have examples of concepts. Study a little bit every night, and this class will be a breeze. It's only daunting when you put of the work. Take it seriously. Everything you learn about is happening around you every day, and you will need to know this information. Don't be afraid to share what you're learning. More people need to have an understanding of the US Government, and you can teach them, even if it's a little bit! Additionally, explaining things to others reinforces your own understanding.
