    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it helped me understand the government and how it works, as well as taught me how to use the correct format for essays.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was the amount of essays we were required to write. Be prepared, there are a lot! But overall, it helped me in my other classes too when I had to properly write, format and cite an essay, I'm proud to say that now I am an expert on how to write them well!

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed, you need to be willing to put effort into writing and learning, it's not a super easy course. You also will need to have/ develop time management skills especially if involved in extracurricular activities.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I learned an extensive amount about how the American government system works. Every branch was covered, and we used current-day events to learn about how things worked. With studying current events we were kept very up-to-date with what was happening nationally and internationally. I wished I would have paid attention more to current news events, because a lot of events happened because of a previous one, or were continued throughout the year, like the election.

    Course highlights:

    I learned which branches of government had certain powers, how the Bill of Rights was important to the American people and still is, and key components of the constitution.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you do your homework and watch all of the videos assigned, they really help!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course to other students. This course helped me to be better prepared for college. It challenged me more than any other honor level classes I have taken.

    Course highlights:

    When taking this class, you will gain an in depth knowledge about the United States government and the politics that drive it. AP Government helps you to understand your parents views, the president's views, which parties stand for what, and even help make sense of your own views.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I recommend keeping up on your homework. AP Government homework consists of many essays and its important to stay on task in order to maintain good grades and really understand the subjects. Studying will make all of the difference. The tests are AP so they have five answers to the questions, so it is important to know the information well. Participation is key to a better understanding! The class is full of discussion so it helps to be interactive.
