    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course taught me a significant amount about not only the U.S. government system, but also life lessons that I will take with me to college.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this class was the discussions that were held within small groups because the students were able to go into extreme depth and debate controversial topics openly.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay caught up with your reading and participate as much as possible. It is much easier to sty caught up, than it is to catch up.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I am stuck in between because although it is very interesting to learn about all of the different sides the government has, the subject was not for me. There was so much material that got confusing at times, and it didn't feel like I progressed as a student.

    Course highlights:

    I learned more about the balances of each branch and what they were about. I learned a lot of supreme cases that made our country the way it is. Specifically the major cases that were impotrant in assembling our government.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    A big tip I would suggest is to read your textbook and to keep up with all of the class work when it is assigned. You have to memorize several different cases, so I recommend learning each one as you are given.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I took this course at Arapahoe High School my senior year, and it was my first AP course. I was very nervous about entering the course due to the extra workload, but quickly learned with hard work, studying and paying attention in class, success comes relatively easy. The concepts are relative to us because they are in our government: therefore we deal with them every day.

    Course highlights:

    From this course I analyzed different concepts and strategies in our US government, from the Framers of the Constitution to how the Electoral College works. We also analyzed strategies of politicians in getting elected and carrying out tasks in office.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To be successful in this course, you must develop good reading/annotating habits. During the later parts of the course, information becomes decently specific. Also, taking notes on lectures in class is obviously crucial (half of tests are on different concepts we learn about together). A decent amount of reading independently is also assigned individually, which is where good reading skills come into play.
