    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It's so important to know about the world around you, this class will help you be cognizant of how your government works, its functions, and how to be a participatory citizen. I would definitely recommend this course, I believe there is no course more fundamental than this course in that it actually relates to us. Knowledge on government is something we millennials lack unfortunately. This class is great because you gain a more in depth knowledge about our country's government and the politics that drive it.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were the videos we viewed. My teacher understood the importance of technology in our world. To keep the class atmosphere light, we had several projects and viewed several films relating to government and historical events. For example, when we got to the president and the bureaucracy chapter, we watched films on the Watergate Scandal and President Clinton's near impeachment. When we got to the Civil Rights and Liberties chapter, we viewed films on historic events like the march on Washington, the Bus Boycott, Martin L. Kings legacy and the freedom Summer. My teacher utilized extensive sources to make learning politics easy and fun. Once we had a Civil Rights Cafe with food and drinks, all of the students dressed up like prominent figures from any civil rights movement (gay, black, feminism) and we all talked about "our" contributions. I learned so much I don't know where to begin. However, my favorite things we learned about were the Senate, the Judiciary, the Bureaucracy, the Presidency, factors influencing voter turnout, the roots of our government, and the development of our government from the thirteen colonies to the United States of America. What made this class so intriguing is that I took it during the 2016 presidential election, when political partisanship was running high and school work and real life was interrelated. We each had a particular week where we had current events and we discussed what going on with the political parties at the national level, city and state level, county level, and in the Supreme Court and both houses of Congress.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go for IT! You will be glad that you did. I learned so much that I never knew, and that I should have known because I am a citizen of the country that the book focuses on. This class may have an effect on your life. When I first took this course, I did it because I had to, because it was an indispensable credit for graduation. I never thought it would influence my career choice, I fell in love with government, the fact that I had a very knowledgeable teacher whose intellectual capacity surpasses that of just politics made it even better !
