Pretty easy, overall.
Mr. Gaskill teaches an AP Government class at Atlantic City High School. Although AP classes tend to sound frightening and arduous, Mr. Gaskill makes the class fun. He interacts and connects with students of all races, creeds, and ages. Due to his friendly attitude, everyone in the class willingly participates and asks questions. The course also isn't that difficult, because Mr. Gaskill is more concerned about his students knowing the material than simply getting a letter grade. It's pretty easy to get an A or B in Mr. Gaskill's AP Government class, however every student learns a ton about the United States Government. Mr. Gaskill's class also makes students think critically about politicians, policies, and the governments around them. Through this course, I had the pleasure of seeing my former peers who were known to be slackers in the past become insightful and active students.
I love how this course is very relaxing, because the instructor creates a relaxing environment. I believe that it is important to know about the politicians, rules, and laws that govern our everyday lives. Through Mr. Gaskill's AP Government class, I increased my knowledge about the history of American politics, and about the American government.

Advice for students:
Although this course is pretty simple to pass, don't slack off!! You actually learn a lot without realizing it, and if you slack off for even a few days you'll be completely lost and play catch-up for a long time.
