Civil Rights - Civil Discourse
|People's Voice: Common Declarations as Cultural Literature
A project for students enrolled in American Literature
Civics is a practical study of the American political system, and the history and principles of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The course will move logically from the foundations of Ameri- can government to citizen involvement in the political process at the national, state and local levels. The course is designed to show how government in the United States at all levels works, and how you can participate in it. This is a required course for sophomores.
AP U.S. Governement and Politics
AP US Government and Politics provides analytical perspective on government and politics in the United States. This course involves both the study of general concepts used to interpret American politics and the analysis of specific case studies. It also requires familiarity with the various institutions, groups, beliefs, and ideas that constitute US political reality. This course serves as an alternate to the required Civics course in the sophomore year but can also be taken as an elective during grades 11-12.
