Course Description

This is designed to be a one semester American Government course for high school juniors or seniors with approximately 85-90 lessons. It teaches the natural law roots of our constitutionally federated republic form of government. It also examines how far we have strayed from these roots throughout our history and gives the student principles for evaluating policy proposals that are popular today. Sixteen lessons are set aside to work on an included policy research paper project (or other project of the teacher’s choosing).

  • There are four Units that each end with a Unit Test. Each Unit lasts between four to five weeks.
  • Each Unit consists of two Modules that are divided into daily lessons with videos, readings and interactive online review activities.
  • The Semester Overview document below shows the flow of the course on one page.
  • A pdf Study Guide (with suggested answers in the Teacher’s Guide) and Topic Quizzes are provided to make sure students are grasping the most important information on a regular basis.
  • Four multiple choice Unit Tests are provided to evaluate progress and are graded online.
  • An optional Research Project activity is provided and one day in most weeks is set aside for this.
  • You can navigate around the course at any time using the Module and Lesson links in the sidebar.

Students receive online access for at least ten months beginning August 1, 2019 or your purchase date, whichever is later. You can complete the course on your schedule, at your pace.

Included in the price of the course, a separate username can be set up so that a parent/teacher can monitor the student’s progress and access the Teachers’ Guide materials. By default, the username and password you create during the checkout process will be used for student access. However, you can contact cathe@boundarystone.org to set up or change the usernames at any time. Creating separate teacher and student users will require two separate email addresses and usernames.


The parent/teacher determines the grading requirements and could use any of the following components to determine the course grade. They may decide whether to grade each of these or give you credit for completing some of these assignments.

  • Reading assignments and videos
  • Answering Study Guide Review Questions in writing, which the parent/teacher will grade or check for completeness
  • Chapter/Lesson Quizzes, which are graded online
  • Unit Tests (4), which are graded online
  • Policy Research Project Mini-course, which will be graded by the parent/teacher

As long as students are logged in, using the Mark Complete buttons at the end of a lesson will cause student progress to show graphically at the top of the page. Also, the teacher/parent can access a grades panel in order to see and download quiz and test scores and to see which lessons they have marked as complete.

BAG Semester Overview

Quote to Ponder

If a man has the right to self-ownership, to the control of his life, then in the real world he must also have the right to sustain his life by grappling with and transforming resources; he must be able to own the ground and the resources on which he stands and which he must use. In short, to sustain his human right.

— Murray Rothbard
