    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    History is imperative in learning how to effectively resolve present day conflicts. I strongly recommend this course because it is not only eye-opening, but thought provoking on the reasons behind the complexities of problems we face today.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was definitely learning about the Colombian Exchange, but most importantly, its dreadful affects on Native Americans. I was educated on the horrendous consequence of this historically important exchange on natives, knowledge which I can apply to the Standing Rock movement.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I strongly suggest thoroughly reading the assigned reading material given, not just skimming over it, because the homework material is the greatest source of knowledge for tests.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The importance of politics is growing more and more every day. The general structure of the government is taught to students, but economic policies, which shape a lot of our nation, are never taught in our school system. I think that understanding the financial side of politics is important in growing a deeper knowledge and this is why I highly recommend this course.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course for me was that it helped me understand a lot of proposed policies by the presidential candidates, which is really important this election year.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I think that the textbook we are given was really helpful so definitely stay on top of the assigned readings. Lots of great resources can also be found on the internet if you know where to look.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This high school course I am taking now is one of the most challenging I have taken in my 4 years; however, it is the most rewarding. I was fortunate enough to take it during an election year, so we got to discuss the political debates as well as the candidates themselves. The class gets two books: one solely about American Government and how it works, and the other with primary sources from authors like Alexander Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson, and more.

    Course highlights:

    I love the discussions because I get to see and think about certain issues in a whole new light. I would sometimes go into class thinking I believed a certain way, then leave class with an entirely new opinion. I love that we get to read what the Founding Fathers wrote about because they are the people who built our country up from dust.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not get behind in your reading. Always participate and take notes because that is how you learn! Do not skip out on your homework assignments or writing assignments.
