    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class will not only educate you on the government our country operates under, but it will also help you become a better citizen. You will learn about the voting system, civil rights, equal rights, laws, bills and so much more. Mr. Richardson is a great teacher and keeps the class entertaining.

    Course highlights:

    Learning about the voting system was the highlight of this course. It was interesting to learn, especially because this was the first time I got to vote. Taking this class before voting taught me a great deal about the importance of citizen involvement.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If nothing else, this class will help you become a better citizen. You will better understand the operating system that is your government. Don't take this class lightly, it is one thing that will stick with you after high school.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I truly loved this class, Mr. Seewer took a subject that I formally did not enjoy and made it fun. He gave notes that covered everything very well and turned them into a fun conversation. Not only do you learn the actual history section, but he gives you the opportunity daily to express your opinions from full debates to just small conversations. He really made me enjoy the subject and I thank him for that

    Course highlights:

    My favorite parts of the course were the daily debates, everyday he would give us a news article that we were able to give our opinion on. It was a great way to express your opinion in an environment where it was highly encouraged. I loved learning about not only the history happening but the culture at the same time, the style of life and how things were in that time.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study, study, study. He gives you plenty of time to study and truly know the information before he tests you on it. His tests are kind of hard so you definitely need to know the material! Don't think you can slide by not studying if you want a good grade!
