Too often, Government classes turn the noteworthy details into tedious discourse that would put even the president to sleep. American Government 101 cuts out the boring explanations, and instead provides hands-on activities that keeps you engaged as you learn. From the backstory of the Constitution to the institution of the Electoral College, this class is packed with hundreds of entertaining tidbits and concepts to help you learn about how the government of the United States actually works. Whether you want to learn about how policies and laws are created, or just want to become a better-informed voter, American Government 101 has all the answers–even the ones you didn’t know you were looking for.

This class is a combination of lecture, video clips as well as discussion.

NOTE: Registration deadline is September 15, 2021.

There must be a minimum of 5 students to run this class.

My son, L, has also taken several social studies classes with Jonathan Meola. Luke truly enjoys all of Jonathan’s classes and especially enjoyed American Government 101. Jonathan made government fun and exciting.
We are very pleased with the quality of lessons, the attention each teacher has given to L, and the invaluable learning received from all classes in Open Tent Academy.
I have recommended OTA many times and will continue to do so.
