AP US Government and Politics

  • This course has two components which study the government and politics of the United States and six other nations – China, Great Britain, Iran, Mexico, Nigeria and Russia. AP United States government is concerned with the nature of the American political system, its development over the past two hundred years, and how it works today. AP Comparative government is an introduction to various political systems in our contemporary world which will familiarize students with the most important methods, concepts, and theories in the field of comparative politics. The course prepares students for two Advanced Placement examinations in May – one in United States Government and one in Comparative Government. I teach the US Government component of the course, while Mrs. Patterson teaches the Comparitive Government component of the course. We alternate classdays and instructional time.
