All Politics is Local

By Brittany Yurkovitch on 11/18/2013 Last week, Richardson High School students overwhelmingly rejected a district approved guest speaker, the “bestselling author” of Christian inspired books on dating, Justin Lookadoo. Lookadoo caused an uproar among students which has now gained international attention. As a Richardson district AP Government and Macroeconomics teacher in Berkner High School’s STEM [...]

Debt, Denial, and Disgust

By Brittany Yurkovitch on 10/20/2013 Many of us living in the two political party paradigm smiled as they read last week’s debt ceiling headlines: A bipartisan deal had been reached and furloughed federal workers may return to work. Federal parks are open and White House tours will resume. Victory came in the 11th hour inspiring [...]

Call me crazy, but I think everyone in Washington DC has gone insane.

By Brittany Yurkovitch on 9/8/2013 It is becoming increasingly difficult to teach the various political ideologies to my new group of students. Liberals have been acting like conservatives, and conservatives have been acting like liberals. There are just too many lies and it’s all so confusing to the neophyte political observer. Even Matt Drudge acknowledges [...]

Madam Feinstein, I’m slightly concerned for your mental health.

By Brittany Yurkovitch on 8/18/2013 Dear Dianne Feinstein, Recently, a former AP Economics teacher wrote a letter to the massive state surveillance system and since I know you introduced the last internet censorship bill, PIPA, voted to extend the Patriot Act, and introduced legislation to ban semi-automatic rifles or “assault weapons” as you masters of [...]

Why did the Republican Governors Association give $58,000 to “Illuminati Research”?

By Brittany Yurkovitch on 8/8/2013   I am trying to get back into the swing of the upcoming school year. Increasingly, my time is shifting from house remodeling projects to preparing to teach AP Government and Politics and AP Macroeocnomics. So I find myself  looking at old material, revamping projects, looking at calendars- typical teacher [...]

Don’t Worry, Be Hempy

By Brittany Yurkovitch on April 7, 2013 It’s official. Over 50% of Americans are ready for marijuana prohibition to end. This is fabulous news and freedom lovers alike should celebrate. Alcohol prohibition ended when it became to expensive and unpopular to enforce during the Great Depression. Our drug laws will probably experience the same fate [...]

Awakening to the true value of silver

By Brittany Yurkovitch on February 3, 2013 Happy Bread and Circus weekend, I mean Superbowl weekend. These are exciting times to teach government and economics. This semester, I am teaching a combination of economics, AP Macroeconomics, and US History- so I am busy, to say the least. The US History course was added to my [...]

Good deals on Etsy

By Brittany Yurkovitch on Jan 6, 2013. “This next goodie was no splurge at a wildly inexpensive $10.  Sorry, I got the only one of these:”-Katy Kincade at Green Magpie It has been a while since my last post. I have been incredibly busy during the holidays entertaining guests and getting ready for the new [...]

My Take on the Presidential Debate: Do you want some soma with your police state?

By Brittany Yurkovitch on 10/7/2012 While I was beyond unenthusiastic about Wednesday night’s debate, I am very impressed with my government students. The overwhelming majority of them watched the first presidential debate, took notes on what they saw, and had lots to say in class Thursday. I am shocked that many students watched more than [...]

Are you Fast and Furious yet?

By Brittany Yurkovitch on 9/9/2012 I drew this cartoon during the summer at an AP Summer Institute after learning that the US Attorney General, Eric Holder, might be held in contempt of Congress for his participation in the Fast and Furious debacle. During my AP Government professional development, I decided to write a little rap [...]
