    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The best classes you'll ever take are ones taught by passionate teachers and professors. I have never seen a teacher who loves their subject more than Mr. Wexler. Although he goes off on tangents sometimes and can get a little distracted, it only makes you learn more because he loves government. I had no idea what I wanted to do after high school until I took this class, and it definitely changed my path forward.

    Course highlights:

    Mr. Wexler made this class completely hands on. It was full of simulations and mock trials, we even were the first high school class to ever get a bill introduced in US Congress! Every student got to talk to congressional representatives and senators as well as their staffers, and we even met many of them on class trips to Washington, D.C. It gave a lot of insight into the workings of the government, further than any textbook can take you.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The first semester, I barely paid attention and I did not participate that much, and it affected how much fun I had as well as my grades. When I started to get involved in the discussions and activities, I enjoyed myself so much and my grades skyrocketed. The class is easy and fun if you want it to be.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because not only is the teacher passionate about his work, but the lessons themselves are incredibly interesting and valuable even outside of school. I got to help create a bill and lobby on capitol hill, discuss elections, as well as study the various forms of government. I would recommend this for anyone who finds politics valuable in society. It was difficult at first for me, since I entered the class knowing nothing about government and politics, but by the end of the year, I was a proud lobbyist and more involved in political affairs than I had ever been.

    Course highlights:

    I had the once in a lifetime experience of messaging senators and congressmen about a bill my class created. I was the lucky one to get a response saying that a congressman would like to sponsor it, and so we traveled to Washington D.C. where we met him, and then got to seek other politicians to seek more support. It was such an incredible and unforgettable time for me. This hands-on method of learning taught me more about the way the U.S. government works. My class got to see first-hand the steps a bill has to go through in the system in order to be passed.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Anyone taking this class should definitely study. Understand the different branches of government, how they are related to each other, their shortcomings and their benefits. Stay up to date on current events, such as elections. Challenge yourself and always question what you are learning, because it leads to valuable discussions.
