Description: This American Government course will seek to give students a clear understanding of the historical and philosophical elements that make the United States a unique nation. The textbook used is written from a Christian perspective and will serve as the foundational material to satisfy the high school credit requirement but will also serve as the springboard for broader discussion into issues of government, politics and citizenship. A respectful tone for divergent viewpoints will be maintained.
Homework will involve reading, research, some short essays, and preparation for class discussion.
