    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I love the class and the opportunity to have to go to Washington DC. Had a great experience in high school and what a positive way to finish your high career learning the things you like and being with great friends!

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course is going to the trip to Washington DC with all your class mates and meat the officials in the capital. A trip of a life time. And, what makes it more special is going with your friends and making great memories.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Have always in open mind and ready to learn something exiting and expect to be challenged. Require some research from your behalf but super fun and you get lots of help for resources.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this online AP US government course for those that enjoy or are interest in the material and also prefer online courses rather than an in the classroom experience. The 16 week course I took the work was not as heavy as if you were to take a shorter weeks course. The work was not hard but took a couple of hours with vocab and etc. Make sure to study and keep up with work and turn in ON TIME. That is so important. If you don't think that you could handle any of the aspects that I mentioned then maybe it would be best to take another class or take the class in a classroom setting not online.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course is that you learn interesting government vocab and information that are actually helpful in everyday life. Politics is very widely talked about especially with the upcoming election so it was interesting to be able to connect and apply what I learn to actual events that are occurring. I learned about the constitution, different court cases that shaped our country, and many politicians and influential figures.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    What you need to do to succeed is STUDY. Do the homework and vocab that is required of you and actually learn it and understand it. Turn everything in on time and keep up with your assignments and you will do great in the class. You have to motivate yourself and be your own advocate. If you don't understand something or have questions don't be afraid to contact your online teacher.
