AP US History and AP Government are college-level courses offered at North. Students are able to receive college credit through them. AP Government focuses on the importance of various constitutional principles, rights, procedures and political processes that impact us as citizens. "I hope students leave my class as informed members of society who can navigate the media and political landscape," Mr. Redus said. "This class has taught me about the fundamentals of government and it's really gone in depth," senior Ismari Martinez said. "We discuss how to amend bills, strategies that politicians use to win the candidacy and how political science majors thinks."
AP US History examines the nation’s political, diplomatic, social and economic history from 1941 to the present. ”APUSH taught me more about the US and the world than any social media or news outlet,” senior Emily Guerrero said. “I learned different perspectives on issues that I would never wish to face, and how far we’ve come, but still have yet to go.”
Global Conflicts is a newly added elective course taught by Mr. Kerby that explores issues of international concern. Students analyze current and historical forces that contributed to: genocide and war. "I hope students leave my class knowing the roots of these things and what causes them because some things that cause them are still present in our society," Mr. Kerby said. "I learned a lot about The Holocaust but also many other genocides that happened around the world. There were many things that led up to these horrific events that many of us were not aware of," senior Nayeli Nunez said. "I would definitely recommend it to other students, Mr. Kerby does a great job of making this class fun and interesting."
