A note from your teacher, John Harrison:
The Advanced Placement US Government & Comparative Government course will prepare students for both the AP US Government & Politics and the AP Comparative Government & Politics exams. Each exam will be 45-minutes, covering units 1-3 of each respective curriculum. Each exam will ask students to complete two essays. The AP US Gov. exam consists of one argumentative essay and one concept application essay; the AP Comp. Gov. exam consists of one argumentative essay and one quantitative analysis essay. For both tests, students will be asked to respond in essay format to demonstrate their understanding of the key aspects of the course material. The examinations are also an open notebook and open textbook test that is more geared towards the skill of writing than the memorization of material. This course will review the content involved, discuss strategies on how to write each specific essay type for each exam and how to earn maximum points with the new scoring rubric. This course will be quite useful for students who are looking for effective strategies for how to prepare for these two uncommon tests.
