American Government • PLSC 201, American Government, is not a prerequisite for this class. However, I’m assuming a certain level of knowledge on your part about American national government. So that I don’t end up repeating my lectures from another class, if there’s anything you’re unclear about as far as national government is concerned, speak to me after class or during office hours. I’ll be happy to take the time to clarify points or help you catch up.
So…who are you? • Name • What do you like to be called? • Where are you from? • Do you have any experience in politics or government? • Why are you taking this class? (Major requirement, prospective political science major, general interest, etc.)
