The U.S. Constitution (Cornell LII)
The Cornell Law School Legal Information Institute (LII) maintains an easily accessible Constitution with hyperlinks to each Article and Section as well as explanations for each section.
Politico (News Website)
I've found Politico to be the most helpful and comprehensive source of political news available online. My sharing this website does not constitute an endorsement of all of its content.
It's very important for AP Government students to follow public opinion. We will refer to Gallup often in class and students will be expected to stay familiar with key polling data (presidential approval, etc.)

The SHS Great Communicator
Following current political news is absolutely critical to learning to think politically. Students are expected to spend about fifteen minutes a day reading up on and discussing current politics. The SHS Great Communicator will tweet items of interest. Anything tweeted before 7 PM the evening before any class meeting is subject to a quiz.
