Course Description

 

Welcome to U.S. Government!

This is a one semester, introductory course in American Politics and Government, that is a required course for graduation. Throughout the semester, we will discuss the founding of the Republic, the basic principles and foundations of American Government, the Constitution as a “living” document, current institutional structures as well as the role and behavior of citizens in a representative democracy.  We will be discussing a variety of topics that will provide you with the understanding of what it is and how it affects our nation today.  By the end of this semester course, ideally you will take away an understanding of how our government functions and be able to critically analyze some of the modern issues facing this nation.
