    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It developed in me a love for my country and her citizens and politics.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was Mr. Beckmann's encouragement of his students to speak their minds freely and express their thoughts, opinions, and ideas. I got over stage fright and learned how to express my beliefs and how to respond to criticism.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best thing a student in this class can do for themselves is study every night. Reading the chapter in the text book the chapter is over several times, taking notes, making flash cards. These study habits are a mark of a good student and it is how you will thrive in this class.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Government is a class that can actually be applied to the outside world. Many classes seem to have no real-life application, but because politics are so prevalent in today's society, becoming educated on the way they work helps a lot. Since high school students are extremely close to being voting age, they need to be aware of what they are voting for. This class thoroughly teaches the aspects of the government and prepares students for the crazy system that is America.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a lot from this course. First of all, I learned how the election process works, which was one of the most applicable topics in today's world. It's extremely confusing to try and pick up on your own, and I was glad I had someone explaining it to me. Secondly, I learned about all the amendments and the court cases they were used in. It was not only interesting, but it always helps to know the rights that you as an American citizen have (in case you ever get into a sticky situation). And finally, most importantly (although it wasn't directly part of the course), I learned how to properly debate and have a strong argument. This class was heavily discussion-based, and we learned which arguments would win a debate and which ones would simply make you look bad. My teacher was very, very good at debating, and I learned a lot from him.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in class. That would be my number one piece of advice. There's really only so much you can learn on your own, and chances are, the teacher knows exactly what they're talking about. They're almost always open to questions, and if you don't understand something, the best thing you can do is get help. The second piece of advice I would give, which is just as important, is to do the reading. Almost all of the answers on the tests given and eventually the AP test can be found directly in the book. Reading something over and over again helps immensely with memorization, and taking notes on the reading is also crucial. Overall, this class isn't something you can blow off. It's easy enough if you put in the effort, but if not, it can become increasingly difficult.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Beckmann made the class very interesting despite the fact that most students don't find the topic of government very amusing.

    Course highlights:

    I got such a better underdstandinf of politics, as well as a great background on many famous court cases.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I highly recommend it. Taking regular government class will put you to sleep with any other teacher, but it is relatable and easier to understand here.
