Advanced Placement Government and Politics: United States
According to the College Board's Course Description:
The AP Government & Politics: United States course provides an analytical perspective on government and politics in the United States. This course involves both the study of general concepts used to interpret U.S. politics and the analysis of specific case studies. It also requires familiarity with the various institutions, groups, beliefs, and ideas that constitute U.S. political reality. While there is no single approach that an AP Government & Politics: United States course must follow, certain topics are generally covered in college courses.
In My Classroom
The types of things that we do on a daily basis range from traditional lecture, to debates, to project based learning, to exploring the boundaries ouf our political expressions.
In a typical semester we fly through a litany of topics, and try to make something as mundane as the government exciting and desirable.....with heavy emphasis on the word TRY.
If you hover over the page at the top, you will find links to different projects we have undertaken the past two years, and I look for that section to continue to expand. Most of the tools can help you study for the AP exam, or remember other governmental concepts.
Eventually I will have links up to notes, handouts etc. but for the most part, those items will be distributed primarily on Edmodo or My Big Campus.
