  • Advanced Placement United States Government & Politics

    The Advanced Placement Government course is taught year-long within a four by four semester block system.  The course explores the roots of our government, the institutions that run our government, the political behaviors that control our government and the public policies shaped by our government.  The purpose of this course is to prepare students to take the AP Exam for US Government and Politics.  The course is taught at a college level using a college textbook.  A substantial amount of reading is required for the course.  Students are also required to purchase the AMSCO AP Paperback textbook.  Sophomores enrolled in this course will also be taking the Government High School Assessment during the Spring Administration.  The additional content required for the HSA will be woven into the existing AP units. The course begins with a general introduction to governments and why we have them before delving into the curriculum as outlined by the College Board.  There is additional time built in for review prior to the AP test.
