Created by a team of veteran AP Government teachers (including the four co-moderators of the popular and almost 5K-member strong AP Government Teachers Facebook group), content experts at iCivics, and expert tutors at Study Edge, this course is designed to support teachers and students alike as they navigate the newly-designed AP course and exam.

The course features over 100 videos and accompanying study guides that break down all of the essential content of the AP Government course, making it more accessible for all learners. These are designed to mimic one on one tutoring sessions and are delivered by expert educators. The course also features practice items and exercises that are dedicated to the new formats of the multiple choice and free response questions on the newly redesigned exam which will be administered for the first time in 2019. These will take the form of course-aligned “Exam Edge” videos and study guides at the end of each of the course’s 15 content sections. The required Supreme Court Cases and Foundational Documents are each highlighted with their own review guide and PDF.

“My students liked that the videos were easy to follow along with and that they were broken down into easy to understand sections.” - teacher, Stephanie Y.
