How much homework is in U.S. Government and Politics?

AP® U.S. Government and Politics is a rigorous, college-level course. The College Board recommends this course and corresponding AP® exam for advanced 11th grade students and up.

We estimate that the course workload will take 10+ hours per week.

During a typical week in this course, students will complete the following coursework:

  • 60–90 minutes of live class instruction
  • Lecture video
  • ~20-40 pages textbook reading
  • 1-2 chapters of non-textbook reading
  • Weekly worksheet

Throughout the year, students will also complete the following tasks:

  • 4 book reviews (5-6 page essay)
  • Unit exam every 5 weeks (Year total: 5)
  • Final exam
