    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it helps students understand the basics of economics on a general level. It is good to understand how the economy works in our current country.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course include the ideas behind how a company might act to develop and produce a certain product. It is very interesting how companies need to think about how the short run and long run will turn out.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    If students were to take this course I would tell them to always do the homework and read the chapters that are assigned. The teacher will not always review everything in the book and will skip over some stuff.

    Always do the readings, no matter how small! There are quizzes on readings and some of the readings in packets and for homework appear on tests in the multiple choice. Pay attention to small details stated in class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The AP Government course shares valuable insight into the intricacies of the US government and how the political system works in our nation. We learn the true bureaucratic operations of the US government, studying positions of power and the various departments that work within the government. The class helps gain knowledge on current events related to the US and politics in particular.

    Course highlights:

    The first half of the course was more logistical. We learned of the intricacies of the US government, very particularly going over each branch of government and how officials were elected/what power they held. We discussed Judicial activism, for example, when covering the judicial branch of government. When learning about the legislative branch we discussed the senate and the house. Moving on to politics, we learned of the history of the two parties currently dominating in the US. We discussed major supreme court cases as they related to interpretation of the first amendment and of civil liberties. We have discussed and learned of the corruption that goes into campaign financing.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell students to stay updated and engaged in current events and news as that aids in class participation for students. Do not take the course if you are not fully convinced that you have an interest in the subject or politics and will engage in many of the class interactions. Have a general base of knowledge of how the government was formed, especially on important documents including: the Constitution/Bill of Rights. Students should be ready to engage in political debate and analyze the historical trends of politics in relation to US history.
