    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because the teacher is very outgoing and loves when the students want to learn more because then he feels like he is doing his job. He wants to make the atmosphere very happy and striving for us to learn. Yes the work is hard, but once you take this class you will think more about our world.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was learning how the government is and how the electoral college works. I loved walking into his class and he would be always in a great mood. I learned how to study for tests, time management and communicating with people.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise them that this class is not a joke if you want to get pushed by a teacher to do better, take the class. If you are not serious about your academics then do not take this class because you will fail. This class is hard and it will only get harder until you finish.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to any students who want to broaden their knowledge in government. Although, it is extremely important for every student in this country to know how our government works and important current events because certain events can affect everyone.

    Course highlights:

    This course taught me to pay more attention to politics and any politicians that could be causing issues in our community. I learned that it should be a necessity to vote in every election if you want some things to change. The politicians represent the people, if you are not actively participating, you may not receive the results that you like.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are a student considering this course, then I suggest that you spend a considerate amount of time outside of school studying. I say this because you may not be able to cover all of the necessary materials in class, especially if you only take this course for one semester. Outside preparations is highly recommended for students who plan on taking the AP exam on this course.
