The AP US Government and Politics test requires strong knowledge of fifteen landmark Supreme Court cases considered to offer a range of significant Constitutional questions. This course will involve in-depth study and analysis of those fifteen cases. We will focus on each case by exploring the background, message, and impact of each on American history and government. In addition, we will discuss how these cases might be used on the AP exam to increase students’ confidence in preparing for the test.
