This committee develops the coursework and examination for the Advanced Placement (AP) Comparative Government and Politics program.

Creating the multiple choice and free response questions helps to realistically assess what students know. Carter’s involvement with this committee began nine years ago, when she started to grade the AP exam, and then culminated in being the table leader for the exam last year.

Introducing students to the diversity of politics outside of the United States, the AP Comparative Government and Politics course uses a comparative approach to examine political structures; policies; and the political, economic, and social challenges among six countries. Examining how these countries solve similar problems, students compare the effectiveness of how different governments approach global issues.

Shaping curriculum and sharing knowledge on global issues at the national level is Positively PWCS.
