    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class as it has proven to be incredibly interesting and the material relates directly to your life, something not too common in high school classes. The teacher is also very enthused and interested in the material, therefore making the learning process a lot more enjoyable.

    Course highlights:

    I've learned a lot about how the brain works and about disorders that have affected millions of people, including my own loved ones. We watch great documentaries and videos that provide compelling information. One of my favorites was about personality and how personality is both influenced by nature and nurture. We then took a test to determine our own personality. We do lots of activities such as this which makes the course really personal.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the book and do the vocab on time! Also, print out the unit notes and use those to study from, it's a great resource. In addition, watch Crash Course videos and do the PsychSim Tutorials, those are extremely helpful and perfect for active studying!

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It was a very interesting course. It was not my favorite subject, but I enjoyed talking about current issues such as abortion, drug testing in schools and other controversial topics. I also, really enjoyed our final exam project. We were required to pick a controversial topic today and present it to a panel of judges at a debate fair. I loved being able to express my opinions about what topics I feel are most important today.

    Course highlights:

    There are several highlights in this course. In this course we learned about the government and the different branches. We learned exactly what the different branches do and how it affects us as citizens. I was not to fond of this part of the course, but it is most definitely a good thing to know since we are U.S. citizens. Therefore, in a sense this course kind of prepared me for life as an adult and having to understand what your government is doing and how it will affect you. In this course we also learned about and discussed current issues today. This was very helpful in terms of boosting my confidence level and keeping me updated with issues in our world. It boosted my confidence level because I had to speak my opinion in front of a whole classroom. I'm a pretty shy person, so doing something like that kind of scared me, but it made me more confident in what I was saying.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Students entering this course should keep and open mind because we discuss a lot of controversial topics. Students should also be respectful, because in this class it is required that you share your opinions on current issues and it is not always easy for everyone to do that.
