AP American Government
…with Mr. Baker
What are the functions of our government? What do you think our government should do? What should they not do?
Respecting the Classroom
-As students walk into class each day, they grab any paper work that is on the welcoming table.
-Students are expected to grab a Bellringer sheet every Monday from the welcoming table.
-Bellringerswill be due every Friday!
Students will only be issued a hall pass if it is a dire emergency!
Students will raise three fingers to indicate they need to use the restroom.
When I approve, you will open your personal planner to the appropriate monthly view for me to sign it.
-All group-project materials (markers, colored pencils, glue, scissors, etc) will be put back to their appropriate location when complete.
-This is OUR learning environment, treat it with respect!
Show up on time.
Try to bring a positive mental attitude.
Be prepared, ready, and willing, to learn.
How will we live and learn together?
1. Distinguish the two concepts of democracy mentioned in the chapter. In what sense does the textbook refer to the US government as democratic?
2. Explain what is meant by political power. What is political power’s relationship with legitimacy and democracy?
