Not too easy. Not too difficult.
AP Government with Mr. Russmisel has been by far one of the most enriching classes I have taken. Although my passion and interests don't lay with government, Mr. Russmisel's classroom atmosphere and sense of humor makes his class my favorite to be in.
The highlights to AP government was when we simulated a Congress floor debate, where students had to write a bill on any issue they wanted, and if it was passed to the floor they were allowed to fight it in debate in the "congress." This experience was thrilling because it applied concepts we were learning about in class to a real life simulated experience.

Advice for students:
The advice I would give future students wanting to take this class, was to not slack off on the homework assignments and to thoroughly read and comprehend the reading assignments for he draws his questions almost directly from the book's notes. Another piece of advice is to enjoy his class and participate, for you will receive a much more enriching experience if you participate.
