    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The course is interesting and is a good way to get an introduction to American government. However, for most careers, it seemed to me that it would have little practical application to it. It was fun at times and was discussion-oriented.

    Course highlights:

    I learned plenty about how every branch in government keeps tabs on one another and the powers branches have that the others do not. A highlight for me would be the realization that, for congress, very little of the decision-making is done a debate floor and much more is done elsewhere.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go into the class with an open mind. I would recommend staying aware of what is going on in the world. In the class, its political implications, why or why not something will be done about it, etc. will be discussed.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a fun, interactive class that does have a larger work load but definitely worth it in the long run!

    Course highlights:

    There is a cake analogy that compares government where one is layered cake and the other is marble cake; it is something that is remembered forever.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely should make sure to watch the videos and take notes. You may not feel like doing it at the time, but it is definitely useful when it comes long term to the AP exam.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Absolutely take this course! Mrs. Belson is very enthusiastic about helping her students learn, and she goes above and beyond if someone is interested in learning more about a subject outside of what they learned in class.

    Course highlights:

    The project about different cultures is great and allows for many different outcomes, simply because she lets you pick the country you do a presentation on. Another highlight was Mrs. Belson's willingness to meet with me after class hours to discuss anything I learned about that day that I was curious about. Overall she's a very good teacher, and it's an interesting class!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be able to work in a group! If that's not your cup of tea, though, don't worry! Mrs. Belson is very understanding and will do her best to work with you. Otherwise, just have an interest in how people work (and be able to turn in work on time) and you should be a-okay.
