AP® US & Comparative Government and Politics
All Genders Course;
AP® US Government and Politics and AP® Comparative Government and Politics is a year-long course that provides students with an in-depth understanding of the American government as well as various political systems around the world. The fall focuses on American government, including how different agencies within the government interact and how these agencies and their policies affect the daily lives of Americans. The spring covers AP® Comparative Government and Politics, which is an introduction to the methodology of comparative politics and an in-depth look at six different states: Iran, Nigeria, China, Russia, Mexico, and Great Britain. Students will understand what factors contributed to the development of the American political system as well as the structure of the U.S. government and the American political process. They will also recognize major comparative political concepts and how to apply them. Finally, students will be able to compare political institutions and processes from across the world and form sound conclusions based on those comparisons. This course prepares students for both AP® Exams in the spring.
“One of my favorite things is the real world application because we have so many different viewpoints, we can delve deep into the meaning of U.S. politics and what is going on in our country with students from across the country."
