American Government & Politics (Ballweg)

Government and Politics offers the student with limited background an opportunity to further the skill and knowledge of working with wood and machines.  The basic skills and concepts will be reinforced as students design, plan, and mass produce projects.   The operation, care, and safety of the common woodworking tools and machines will be emphasized.  Related information on research design, lumbering, woods, tools, processes, safety, finishing, and evaluation will provide a broad background and understanding of the workability of wood and machines used in industry today.  Students will also exhibit their learning through research, written reflection, and discussion.  This class provides relevant content for students interested in careers in the Government and Public Administration Career Cluster.
