AP US GO PO LINKS - olahighgardner | Ola AP US Government & Politics | Scoop.it

Your place to go for AP US Government and Politics videos, documents, and more.  The site is divided up by unit.  Use this as a resource for your Webpage Project.

Chris Gardner's insight:

Since APGOPO is a college-level course, each time you provide “insight” on a “scoop,” you must write a paragraph of AT LEAST 5 sentences detailing what you learned from the article, document, video, or game you post. 

 

These paragraphs should contain:

1)      A topic sentence

2)      An explanation of what the video or article covered

3)      An explanation of how the video or article connects to our course content

4)      YOUR reactions and opinions about the content

a.  Why did you choose that scoop?

b.  Is the information reliable?  Why or why not?

c.  What did you learn from the video, article, document, or game?

d.  How did it affect your views about our course topic?
