Government:

American Government is a two semester course open to seniors. The course is intended to familiarize the student with the basic fundamentals and principles upon which our government is based. Special emphasis will be placed upon the evolution and change of our government since its founding, and both the domestic and foreign political environments which have dictated changes. It is intended that the student will acquire a general understanding of those fundamentals and principles of the American form of government and how they have been adapted to meet the changes of time over two centuries. The class will be taught basically by lectures. Class discussions are also very much a part of the classroom approach, and the students are expected to contribute to these discussions. Research papers are sometimes used as a means of investigating governmental problems and specializing in certain areas of governmental activity. Student evaluation will be based upon written examination, daily pop quizzes over previous day's material, and evaluation of written assignments.
