State and Local Government 

This page is designed to help students enrolled in State and Local Government.  Click on any of the items in the column on the left for information about this class.  Here you will find a description of the course as well as many aids to help you understand the course material.  In addition to the traditional syllabus material the website contains sample test questions and study guide to help you prepare for the tests.  It also has links to resources on the Internet to help you do written assignments. 

The Syllabus is a detailed online version of the course description and objectives, text and reading assignments, test dates and material covered on the tests.  It also has information about my office hours and location and how to contact me.  You should save it by copying it to your hard drive, a disk, or print it out.
