• This year-long course will guide students through an introductory examination of the political structures that form the foundations of the government of the United States. Through an analysis of the different ideas, beliefs, groups, and institutions students will become more familiar with the structure and function of the country's government. By examining different theoretical approaches, and examples of prior political procedures students will gain a better understanding of the methods and reasoning for the operation of the United States Government. Throughout the course of the year, students will be examining the United States Government by examining its constitutional underpinnings, the different political beliefs, and behaviors, how it is influenced by special interest groups, the institutions of the national government, the formation and implementation of public policy, and the civil rights and liberty issues that form the foundations of our government. Upon completion of the course, students will be given the opportunity to take the Advanced Placement test for the possibility of earning college credit.
