    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I wouldn't tell someone not to take this class with Professor Morris but I wouldn't rave about it either. Professor Morris is a good teacher but his classes are rather boring. Politics isn't necessarily the most exciting subject to learn for most people, but it actually is pretty interesting when you pay attention and I believe it is important for every American citizen to know about the government and how it operates. The entire class period is ran with the lights dimmed but he still expects you to take notes the entire period, and the Professor speaks into a microphone which is kind of odd since the class is so small to begin with.

    Course highlights:

    I took this class while the Presidential Election was happening so I actually learned a lot from this class. I learned about different forms of government and how those aided the idea of what we call democracy today. I was also able to keep up with current events and actually understand what they mean and form my own opinions on the matter because I was more knowledgeable about politics.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class everyday, and take thorough notes. Read the assigned chapter because most of the test material comes from the chapter itself. The notes during class are still important because sometimes the professor gives his own opinions on certain matters or contradicts what the books say and its important to write that stuff down because it may pop up on the tests. Also, prepare to be genuinely knowledgeable of the material you are reading and the subject being taught. There are alawys two essay questions to end the test and he grades you on whether or not you truly understand.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is very informative about the political process in America and with it being an election year coming up , it is important that one be as informed about the political process as one can be.

    Course highlights:

    Mrs. Gardner is really knowledgeable and passionate about the subject matter. It was nice for a community college teacher to facilitate discussion and not just phone in the material. Its also nice for a teacher to value all opinions and not let personal political bias get in the way of her teaching

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you try to take all of her notes as she lectures, you will miss great side notes that aren't on the powerpoint
