Welcome to United States Government!  This course provides a framework for understanding the purposes, principles, and practices of American government as established by the United States Constitution. Students are expected to understand their rights and responsibilities as citizens and how to exercise these rights and responsibilities in local, state, and national government.

Students will be actively engaged and challenged by using the following strategies: class discussion, open-ended problem solving, hands-on activities, project based learning, computer-assisted research, and cooperative learning.  These strategies will help the students to focus on the concepts of American Government, as well as deepen their understanding of civics and history.
