    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Civics and Government is my favorite class in high school! The teacher I had was fun and very energetic, the workload wasn't too bad and the curriculum was fascinating! You learn so much about how our government works and why in such a short period of time. From the beginnings of the Constitution to the Electoral College (which once you learn about it will discover how unfair it is) you'll know it all. Politics are important to pay attention to, and once you take this class and understand why politicians, presidents, representatives and judges do what they do and the motives behind them. Being aware and understanding of the world around you is very important and this course covers what you need to know about politics (the good, the bad and the ugly)!

    Course highlights:

    I learned that the Electoral College is the devil (as my teacher would say), and politicians might not actually stand for the morals they say they stand for; all political leaders want is winning elections and keeping their party in office. I also learned the importance of the Constitution, how state leaders interact and I even had to do a project where we made our own state and had to make a constitution. We did many debates, had our own mock election and spent a lot of time in groups. Unlike other classes where you are thinking "I am NEVER going to use this stuff!", you actually use what you learn in Civics way beyond high school and can apply it the minute you leave the classroom.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you like any part of government or just want to know how politicians "work their magic", this class is for you. There are a lot of group collaboration projects that teach you how to work with people you maybe don't like too much and you get to voice your political opinion in a comfortable class environment. I highly recommend this class because it is actually a class you can apply out of the classroom and in the real world!
