This course is an intensive investigation of America’s national government using key primary and secondary sources.  The aim is to give the student a broad, deep and rigorous understanding of our government. The course begins at the beginning, with a close look at the American founding.  It then carefully examines federalism and the three branches of government.  In addition to understanding the principles by which the various components of American government operate, we also study important and controversial Supreme Court cases that have affected our view of the government and our rights.
