    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course isn't very difficult but the teacher doesn't teach. He is very nice but he does not teach well.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were snow days and I learned not take another course with that teacher.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just don't take the class at all. Ask for Mrs. Papish if you do want to take the class.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This site gives students a chance to read sample questions. I like this website because it can help students prepare for upcoming tests or the AP test.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a lot of knowledge on the US government and politics. I took this course last school year (2015-2016) and my class followed the primaries and watched all the presidential debates. I learned a lot about the US government. I did not realize before taking the class how much our government actually does. I did not know anything about the legislature, judicial, and/or the executive branches and learning about them fascinated me.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely pay attention in class and read over your notes as often as possible. My biggest struggle through the class was that I would forget little details to a concept and would miss the question all together. If I had reread over my notes more I would have probably not missed that little detail. Also, read the textbook. It may not be assigned for students to read but it really helps when you do not quite understand a certain subject. It is a very valuable source that should not be taken for granted.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class can be difficult if you have poor study habits (cramming) but all the material needed for the exam will be taught. Homework and projects are very manageable and will prepare you for the AP exam. Current events are often discussed and analyzed in class, which was interesting.

    Course highlights:

    This is a great class to brush up on government and politics, especially during an election year. A great class to gain basic legal knowledge, learn about major Supreme Court decisions, form your own educated opinions, and learn about the complex world of politics

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you have poor studying habits, think twice! Tests are few and cover huge blocks of information. They make up the majority of your grade. If you know that you will study a few nights in advance, this course will be manageable for you.
