Welcome EHS AP Gov Students!

I am really excited about launching our spring semester classroom blog. I hope this will be an interesting forum for you and your colleagues to share your opinions about current issues related to U.S. government and politics. You will find that most of the issues addressed in this blog will directly relate to concepts that we discuss in class, as well as to those covered on the AP exam in May. In fact, studies by the College Board have shown that students who follow the political news tend to do better on the AP Gov exam. Thus, staying up-to-date on current events will be an essential component and goal of this class.

You will receive more information about how this blog will work shortly. In the meantime, please answer the poll question located in the green column to the right before logging out. Thanks for visiting our classroom blog. I look forward to some fun conversations in the months ahead!

Ms. Nimmo
