This is an honors high-school level, nonpartisan introduction to the foundation of American political thought, current events, electoral practices, foreign policy and the impact of politics on daily life.

This accelerated Constitutional Law course offered Spring 2023 will provide a framework for students to understand how our highest court in the country works and functions within our system of government.
Students will be given information on just how important the judicial branch of government is. They will learn how to read supreme court cases, write beginner court briefs, and become more aware of landmark cases that have shaped our country into what it is today. Additionally, students will learn the importance of strategically analyzing both sides of controversial court cases.
This is going to be a rigorous and delightfully informative course and I look forward to the opportunity of teaching students about this powerful subject!
