Wilson ISBN: 0618713972 Course Description : The goal of this course is to provide you with a working knowledge of the government's institutions and processes at the national, state, and local levels. We will study the basis of the American government, its history, and its relationship to other political systems throughout the world. We will examine the different institutions and processes of government, and its effect on politics and policy-making, here and abroad. Ultimately, this course is designed to emphasize how the American Government affects you as an individual. Internet Access : Obviously, since this is an ONLINE class, reliable Internet access is required. This can be achieved several ways: public computers on-campus, an Internet Service Provider, Kinko’s, etc. We will be using Blackboard, and if you are taking this course you should be already familiar with how to use it as well as have basic computer knowledge. If you encounter any technical problems or glitches, please contact me immediately and I will try to help you. Unfortunately, any problems stemming on your side of the Internet (computers, Internet connection, etc.) are ultimately your responsibility. (Tip: Kinko’s is open 24 hours, should you need it) You are required to have access to your Saddleback/IVC email account, or have your email forwarded to your private email account. This is the only way you will get important class announcements and messages from me. If you need assistance, please contact me. COURSE
