    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class instills a desire in students to really gain an understanding of the workings of our nation, the founding fathers and political systems in general, as well as to seek out and find what they feel to be the best policies and truest principles. It also inspires students to be good citizens.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight for me was the Competitive Mock Congressional Hearings. We competed in a national tournament, which took place in Washington, D.C. I learned an appreciation for all the resources the Founding Fathers had and drew upon to create the Constitution, drawing from philosophies of ancient and previous civilizations, as well as popular documents and philosophies of the day.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep an open and diligent mind, as well as a serviceable heart.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class was absolutely FANTASTIC! Kartchner makes the information relevant to every day life, especially with the rise of Donald Trump and the Apple/San Bernardino fiasco. She has taken a very large, very abstract concept and made it both understandable and applicable to high school students.

    Course highlights:

    I didn't even realize how ignorant I was about government until I started this class. The main thing is you learn how to think critically and question your own beliefs. As far as the material, you go from the very beginnings of government (the philosophical foundations) up to present day and what makes a good citizen. My personal favorite was Unit 3, which talks about the 14th amendment, due process, voting rights, etc.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't try to write the papers a day before. She will proof them before you turn it in; take advantage of that.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it first of all had a wonderful teacher who really knew what she was teaching and the course taught me a lot about government and my duties as a citizen!

    Course highlights:

    I learned about american government! At the beginning i learned how the founders studied the philosophies and governments of successful coutries and pulled ideas from all over to create our democracy. I also learned about how each branch of government works and we studied the documents such as the Declaration and the amendments. I also learned about all the duties that we as citizens are expected to keep up such as voting and jury duty!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to start researching and writing papers as soon as you get the prompt. You should blog during the week instead of waiting till the last minute and you should stay caught up in your reading of the textbook!
