    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course will lead students to becoming more educated and informed citizens of their nation and their world.

    Course highlights:

    In this course, we learned about six distinctly different types of governments. This builds students' understanding of the world from a non-American-centric perspective. Students learn about cultures and governments both in the Western and Eastern hemispheres and by doing so, become more globally educated and aware citizens.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To fully immerse oneself in this course, a student must do the reading to follow along. Additionally, taking time to learn about current news events will also help to really understand the structure of government and how it is currently functioning.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course helps provide you with an understanding of how other countries operate and gives you insights into their culture, politics, and people beyond what your typical social studies course would provide you with. However, it goes further than just that sole country. Holman helps you think of the country in terms of international politics as well as their impact on countries surrounding them.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights are the days we spent looking at he civil unrest in Nigeria, Russia, and China in our attempts to understand why there is anger, chaos, danger, or antagonism. I learned how each of the countries examined are led and the different political parties within each one.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the textbook. Despite Holman's in-depth lectures, he himself tells you that you must read the textbook chapters about the countries in order to do well. Hand write the study guides he gives you so you can better understand the material and recall it better.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Holman is a very funny teacher and crams a lot of information into short amounts of time. He is understanding and the workload isn't too overwhelming.

    Course highlights:

    Before this class, I did not understand politics, but this class gave me the basics I would need to go into my political science major in college.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do your study guides as soon as possible! Do NOT wait until the day before the test to start them!
