Welcome to the Career Center in 2012Dear Students and Parents,Welcome to the Career Center and welcome to the exciting world of social studies. This year I will teach AP U.S. and Comparative Government and Politics. In the U.S. course we will analyze the political structure and system of the U.S., and assess how citizens act within these political institutions. The Comparative GOPO course introduces a global perspective of the world, introducing students to the political systems of the U.K., Russia, China, Iran, Nigeria and Mexico using the comparative method. I look forward to teaching this course during a presidential election year in the U.S. and discussing the results of the recently held presidential election of Mexico where the PRI (a long standing political party the lost power in 2000) has come back to power. I aim to create a classroom where students are inspired to think and question. If at anytime you have any questions I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 336-727-8181.
