Current Events is an integral component to studying and applying the fundamentals of United States government and the political system. The idea is to afford students the opportunity to follow important events and issues arising in the United States and provide commentary and insight, making connections to Government course content.

Beginning the week of July 25-29 and ending the week of August 29-September 2, keep a current events journal. At the end of each week write (complete sentences; ~500 words) about the major event or events in American government and/or politics from the past week relating to US Constitutional issues
