    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class for people who do not enjoy American Public Policy. Taking the class online and over the summer reduces the amount of time you spend in this class. Another bonus is that you can finish the class at an accelerated rate. I took APP over the summer so that I could take Biotech during the school year. You can choose how much time you wish to invest into the class. However, I've found I still needed to work at least 3 hours each day to complete the list of assignments.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about American Public Policy. The final project is an issue investigation which can be fascinating if you choose a topic you are interested in. I chose to investigate the opioid epidemic in the U.S. with a specific focus on what our state government is doing to combat the problem. It was interesting to formulate your own government program. Yet, I wish I could've been able to focus more on what the private sector could do for this problem. I think the knowledge you can learn in this class truly lies in what you choose to have as your "issue".

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    I recommend doing the readings that the teacher assigns. Read the whole thing or skim it but don't just google the answers. Often times there is a specific answer that the teacher is looking for. Just use the APP online textbook. It's much easier. Also when doing group assignments remember to communicate with the other students.

    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!
