• Ag Government

    This course prepares students with an understanding of the institutions of American government. Students will compare systems of government in the world today and analyze the history and changing interpretations of the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the current state of the legislative, executive, and judiciary branches of government within the context of the field of agriculture. An emphasis is placed on analyzing the relationship among federal, state, and local governments with particular attention paid to important historical documents such as the Federalist Papers. This course also requires the completion of a student project (Supervised Occupational Experience Project -- SOEP) and participation in leadership activities through FFA as described in the state guidelines of all agriculture programs.
