    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I went into this class with the mindset that I would not enjoy it because honestly I was never interested in Government, and I heard that Economics tended to be dry and boring. Boy, was I wrong. I ended up highly enjoying the conversations we had in the Government portion of the class, and I actually understood the Economics portion. It's helpful knowing how your country is run, and it's also beneficial to know the basics of the economy. I'm not sure if it was the teacher I had (one of my favorite teachers ever, by the way) or the course itself, but I loved the class very much.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were the class discussions we would have because it was very interesting to hear everybody's perspectives and opinions. Also, the stock market game was a very fun and interactive activity that the class participated in. I learned how the government works, I learned in depth about all three branches of government, and I learned the basics of economics and factors affecting people's choices when it comes to spending their money.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I recommend flash cards for the government portion of the class. There are a lot of terms you need to know, and I especially remember having to memorize all of the amendments. It's very helpful to have a friend review the amendments with you and think of your own ways to remember them. (For example, you can remember the 8th amendment, "no cruel or unusual punishments," by remembering that the number 8 looks like handcuffs.) Also, even if you think you will not enjoy the class, just go into it with an open mind and I guarantee there will be at least one aspect of it you will enjoy, because that's what I did. Who knows, it may even end up being your favorite class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I feel that course provides helpful information, but it does not apply to my plans for the future. I am not a big fan of history courses, but I understand that they are important to have. I wish that this course was not required for graduation. I would be much more interested in another History course in either World history, or maybe Asian History.

    Course highlights:

    I have learned the fundamentals of the American Government and the principles of Economics. We went into details with the Constitution and each branch of government. In Economics we are currently learning the basic principles and what Economics is.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say the most important thing to prepare for in this class are the tests. The class itself is not too difficult, but the tests are very different from previous honors courses I have taken. I would also prepare for the amount of work. I have received as much work in this class as my AP European History class but each assignment is due the next day as opposed to every other day.
