    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is an eye-opener to just how complex our country and the systems and mechanics that hold it in place are.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were definitely the lectures and discussions that followed individual notes-taking. I feel like I learn how to think more wholesomely and correctly about issues and other matters/topics of discussion.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    In addition to taking notes from your textbook, look at online sources for notes that may have supplementary and helpful information.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study the textbook, and take thourough notes from the book. Also ask questions, even if you think it might be an obvious answer.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this class because it helps connect the real world to the classroom. What you learn in this class gives you a better understanding of the government that we have as well as the role that you can play in the government, whether it be local, state, or national. Mr. Harris is also a really great teacher that explains the course in a way that we can understand it, not just how the book tells it.

    Course highlights:

    I really enjoyed learning about the election process and seeing how much it takes for a candidate to decide to run. I also felt like we learned all the "behind the scenes" workings of the government, like how exactly political parties are run and how the government works together. The course also helps to shed light on some of the issues facing the government, such as policy gridlock, where nothing can be passed.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would really suggest that a prospective student reads all the units thoroughly and take good notes from the book. I would also recommend that the student pay attention in class and take notes during class because some important information is left out of the book but he requires it for his tests. The prospective student should be willing to study a lot outside of class in order to prepare for his unannounced quizzes as well as his tests.
