Thank you for taking the time to visit my web page. I am looking forward to this school year and working with your student. This is my third year at Sikeston and I am teaching AP Government and CP Government. You may find weekly lesson plans and assignments under the corresponding web page.  If you need to contact me for any reason, my contact information is in my profile page. A synopsis of each class is below. 

AP Government

This course is a survey of the principles of the American government. The students will study the development and principles of our government, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the structure and function of federal, state, and local government. The students will also learn the importance of political participation, the electorial process, law, the legal system, and the basic economic principles of our nation. Students who successfully complete this course are required to pass a US Constitution and an End of Course (EOC) exam as specified by the State of Missouri. The primary difference between this course and CP Government is the amount of outside work and reading, intelectual discussions and Free Response Question (FRQ) writing that will be expected from students over the course of the year. Students will be encouraged to take the AP Government exam in an attempt to gain college credit for this course.
