    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    History is not a subject I am fond of, but Hosman presents the information in a way that is easily understood and interactive at times. We took field trips to different government buildings in order to experience what we were learning, and this was helpful.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a better understanding of the government and politics of today. Politics tend to be a subject many people avoid due to the conflict associated with it, but that leaves the younger generation in the dark when it comes to how our different systems function.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Reading the book and doing the practice problems at the end of each section are extremely helpful and will lead to success. Engaging in class and asking questions is another way to ensure optimal learning.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would and would not recommend this course. There is no way around it, this can be a thought and somewhat annoying course at times. In general, the coursework is not too overwhelming. However, there were some few days where I felt a bit overwhelmed. Tests can get hard and are largely self-study. This is fine for students who are willing to put in the effort but for those looking for a class to hold-your-hand throughout the process should look elsewhere.

    Course highlights:

    The class revolves around several major topics. These include: The Branches of Government (Executive, Legislative, Judicial) The constitution Interest Groups The Media Elections Much of the class is project based. Much of the time is spent on several week long projects. These are usually group simulations of various government functions including, the SCOTUS, senatorial elections, and more.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Perhaps a bit of cliche advice but extremely relevant for this class, don't study the night before. Completing the homework and studying throughout the class is important, especially during second semester. There are times where things tested are not learned in class so self-studying is one of your greatest friends.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    One of the great things about taking an AP course is that you are surrounded by people who want the same thing that you want: be ahead of everyone else. But this class specifically applies to our everyday lives. We can learn, gain compassion even, about our country's history.

    Course highlights:

    After learning about the elections and the constitution more thoroughly- it made me realize that I wanted to contribute more to society and make a difference in today's world.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Advice I would give to students is that you need to read everything, and read it well. One little misreading, you'll understand completely different.
