Government

In American government we will focus on many different objectives ranging from the study of the origin, history, structure, functions, and processes of our American political system. We will study how we as citizens are involved with and influenced by political parties and interest groups and how each affects the workings of our political system. Also, we will discuss our role as voters and detail the electoral process.

Below you will find links to the government syllabus, calendar of daily activities, online textbook, and other important documents.
