Sign-Up for Our CoGo Fiesta on Wednesday, June 12
As noted prior to the AP Exam, there will be 120 points available in Aeries during the last month of school. Mr. Cameron spent Monday, May 20 outlining the options available to students, and grouped students according to their preferences. Here’s what’s available:
U.S. Constitutional Law: Want to learn the basics of 4th Amendment Constitutional Law (see pg. 3… Unit 4) and how to write legal responses? If you’re interested in any issues related to policing, implicit bias, use of force, what the difference between a ‘stop,’ ‘frisk,’ ‘search,’ and an ‘arrest’ is, or want to pursue law, this is for you. There will be FIVE 1-2 page extremely formulaic ‘legal responses,’ and one Socratic Seminar discussion, each worth 20 points.
Assessing Democratization: Want to apply the concepts and utilize the resources we’ve worked with to assess democratization in ANY country? Cool. For the available sources related to the U.S., consult the following sections of Mr. Cameron’s Working AP U.S. GOV’T Course Reader. If you want to assess democratization in any of our AP 6 countries, check out the APCOGOnPO Units page of the course website for additional material. If you’re writing on any other country, you’re on your own. No matter what your country-focus is, you’ll write a research proposal of your own design (here’s an example) worth 20 points that’s due Friday, May 24, as well as a non-rubric-based research paper due Wednesday, June 12.
