Welcome to AP/DC Government and AP Economics. I am excited to explore these subjects with you. I am a graduate of Texas A&M University and the University of Houston, Main Campus. I have been teaching for many years and love it. I have been teaching in TISD since 2000. I have also served as an adjunct professor in both government and economics through Lone Star College.
Grading for AP Government and DC Government is as follows:
30% Quizzes, presentations, etc.
70% Major (each grading period will consist of 3 to 5 major grades).
Tutoring for AP and DC Government is Thursday 2:50 pm, Friday 7:00 am and 2:50 pm. Students wishing to meet must come with specific questions reflecting that they have done the necessary research and reading prior to the tutoring session.
Tutoring for AP Economics is 7:15 every morning but Tuesday, 7th period and every afternoon but Friday from 2:50 to 3:30. It is preferable that the student make an appointment but not absolutely required.
All students will be required to keep a notebook for this class (3 ring binder, dividers with pockets)
