Mr. Doyle RSS
Hello and welcome.  This is my 17th year at Menomonee Falls High School.  I have a B.S. in history from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and a M.A. in Curriculum and Instruction from Marian College.  My Wisconsin DPI certifications are 701 Broadfield, 710 Economics, 715 Geography, 725 History and 735 Political Science.

I teach United States Government and AP United States Government.  U.S. Government is 6th, 7th and 8th hour.   AP U.S. Government is 1st, 2nd and 4th hour..  In addition to teaching social studies, I am the Social Studies Department Chair.

United States Government
This course examines contemporary issues and problems 
facing American government. Both the structure and the 
current operation of the institutions of government will be 
studied. Topics to be discussed include constitutional 
principles, the electoral process and voting, courts and law, 
the role of the presidency, First Amendment rights, and other 
civil rights and liberties. Students will be expected to use 
critical thinking skills to analyze and evaluate current issues 
and policies. A service learning component is included and is 
required of each student.

AP United States Government
This course will fulfill the US Government requirement for 
graduation. It is a year-long study for students who wish to 
prepare to take the Advanced Placement examination in 
United States Government and Politics in May. Those students 
who successfully complete the exam will be eligible to receive 
college credit in Political Science. The course is reserved for 
seniors who have demonstrated strong writing and analytical 
skills in their sophomore and junior classes in English as well as 
World and United States History.
The major themes of the course are determined by the College 
Board in order to ensure that students cover the material 
necessary for satisfactory performance on the AP exam. This 
course will give the students an analytical perspective on 
government and politics in the United States. It includes both 
the studies of general concepts used to interpret U.S. politics 
and the analysis of specific examples. Areas of concentration 
include the Constitution, political beliefs and behaviors, 
political parties, interest groups and mass media, institutions 
of the National Government, public policy, civil rights and civil 
liberties.
The College Board strongly recommends that a student take 
the AP United States Government and Politics class prior to 
attempting to pass the AP exam. While no one can absolutely 
guarantee that a student who takes the course will receive a 
satisfactory score on the exam, having taken the course would 
enhance his or her chances immeasurably. A fee is required to 
take the exam.​
