A Few Big Assignments
Always Do the Reading
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Mr. Thompson is a wonderful teacher, and knows a lot about what he teaches. Classes are debate centric, so it's great for people who love to argue! There are only a few large assignments throughout the year, because it's mostly just taking notes from a PowerPoint and debating with eachother. Thompson will do his best to debate and answer any government related question you can come up with!
During this course I learned a lot about the way the American government works now, how it used to work, and how it came to be. I also learned about the history behind political parties and how people (especially minorities) can effect them.

Advice for students:
Make sure you study for the tests!!!! MAKE SURE YOU STUDY FOR THE TESTS!!!!! The material may seem simple, but the tests go really in depth. So make sure you know the material THOUROUGHLY. And make sure you participate in all of the debating, you'll learn a lot.
