Course Overview - AP US Government and Politics

     The goal of this class is to provide students with an analytical perspective on our nation’s government and politics. The course is structured to place rigorous demands on students that would be equivalent to college level classes. Therefore, students must master the important facts, concepts, and theories relating to U.S. Government and Politics.  In turn, they must understand the political institutions, behaviors, and processes within our nation.  The course should also make students familiar with political parties, political groups and their behaviors.  In addition, there must be an understanding of our political systems, the strengths and weaknesses, and the liberties, rights, and responsibilities of the people.  The course should also develop critical reading and writing skills to be used throughout the course and on the AP exam.
