    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Klages understands that many different students learn different ways, so she does her best to incorporate different assessment styles and learning activities. She provides interactive simulations, shows interesting historical clips and videos, and has helpful weekly quizzes so that students can see how they are doing with the learning. She even offers extra credit for those who need more help with achieving good grades. Professor Klages really wants her students to succeed!

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of course included discussing current politics with each other and Professor Klages. She tells everyone to "take off their hat" and being free of our own opinions during the class so that we can learn the best about other viewpoints . She teaches students how to debate well and understand other people's opinions. I also learned about the American government, but in a fun way!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class everyday and participate! Professor Klages really wants her students to succeed and she will help a student if they need extra help in her class. If a person participates and does his or her best trying to learn, they will do well. Even if you are taking US Politics as a general required credit, take it with Professor Klages! It was a fun class.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Very helpful with learning about and understanding all aspects of the U.S. government, whether you are a beginner or already have a basic understanding of how the government functions and works.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were the lectures in class and the discussions. The lectures aren't just taking notes from the book. It's more learning about things that relate to what you're reading in the textbook, which makes it more interesting.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up with reading the textbook and use the study lists online to help narrow down what you should really understand from the chapter for the quiz. The writing assignments are usually more based on your own opinion, so read up on the topic and write what you're thinking about it.
