Welcome to AP US Government and Politics!
Welcome to AP U.S. Government and Politics! This course is a college-level political science course designed to help students gain a greater understanding of contemporary American politics. It is reading and writing intensive; great emphasis will be placed on analytical thinking, the development of strong writing skills and the ability to synthesize information from all units in order to make sense of how our complex political structure works. We will begin with an exploration of the political and ideological roots of the U.S. Constitution, with a special focus on federalism and civil liberties. Then we will embark on our investigation of the relationships between the informal and formal institutions of government and their effects on the development of public policy in the United States.
List of thematic units:
  1. Introduction to American Political Culture
  2. Constitutional Underpinnings
  3. Campaigns and Elections, Media
  4. Institutions of Government: Presidency, Congress, Bureaucracy (Budget Process) Judiciary
  5. Civil Rights and Civil Liberties
  6. Political Beliefs and Behaviors
  7. Political Parties and Interest Groups
  8. Public Policy (this is woven in to most units)
