|TPS adds new Government courses, including AP Comparative Government!
This rigorous course provides an overview of modern forms of government while preparing students for the AP exam. The course compares and contrasts the political systems of six states: Mexico, Nigeria, the United Kingdom, Russia, Iran, and China. It illustrates the global diversity of political models to consider institutional alternatives, explain differences in processes and policy outcomes, and analyze political and economic changes. Students consider the nature and use of political power within each state, and expand their vocabulary to analyze the many variables that help explain each of these state’s interests and actions. Since the study of government is ultimately a social study of human relationships, the course considers human motives and goals for government, using the Bible as a text to provide a worldview analysis of the various forms and expressions of government.
This course is one of 20 (and growing) top-notch TPS AP Courses. More about TPS AP Courses…
