The US Government curriculum is one of five history courses offered at the high school level. US Government is taught using a combination of multimedia lessons, instructional videos, worksheets, quizzes, tests and both online and offline projects. The US Government course is designed to prepare students for the US History II course.
This course covers both US Government and Civics. Students can expect to gain a greater understanding of our government, its balance of power on federal, state, and local levels and how the election process works. Students will be asked to compare other systems of government and foreign policies to our own. This course prepares students for college-level study of history and government.
