About this event

This course uses the perspective of political institutions to explore government history, organization, and functions. Students encounter the political culture of our country from the Declaration of Independence to the present day, gaining insight into the challenges faced by presidents, members of Congress, and other political participants. The course also covers the roles of political parties, interest groups, the media, the bureaucracy, and the Supreme Court. Students learn to use primary historical documents as evidence in evaluating past events and government functions. Each student will need to bring a laptop/tablet to class. This class will combine in-class lectures, activities, and assignments with online activities and assessments. Much of the online work will be done at home, between the class meetings. Final will be given on 6/10. This class is a semester-long class condensed into 2 weeks. In addition, it is a requirement for graduation. Being such, students in summer take all of the same tests, read the same books, and do the same projects. Each class simulates a week during the semester. That means for every class missed, it is the same as missing a week of school. If more than 1 class is missed, you will be asked to withdraw from the class during the summer. Students will earn .5 History credits. Room 245
