If you get Papkin, read the chapters and Government will be one the easiest periods on your schedule. She won't spoon feed you the answers during lectures so studying will be self driven, but that's how it is in most AP courses anyways.

She doesnt really teach at all, all we do is talk about the dumbest stuff. If you want a good grade on the AP exam switch out. Her tests are also hard as anything. RUN

I gave her a 3 for popularity because she doesn't take grief from anyone. She is fair to everybody and tries to prepare the students for the real world and maybe you aren't ready.

She's generally nonsensical and illogical. The people I sat with all year and I didn't like her all that much.

She was nice until the end of the year then was kind of angry. But no homework and a totally laid back class.
