Light Speed Video Learning, by Cerebellum Corporation is designed to be a fun and effective way for students to understand a subject. As a member of the Crew, I received U.S. Gov & Politics AP Exam Prep video. This video tutorial covers 30 essential AP American Government & Politics topics in 30 minutes. I can see why they call it "Light Speed Video Learning" - the material is presented very quickly! Each video also includes a digital workbook with video notes, practice questions, and quizzes, so the information can also be worked through at a slower pace.
The DVD is 73 total minutes and covers information on:
- the Constitution
- Federalism and Theories of Democratic Government
- Political Parties and Elections
- Interest Groups & Political Action Committees
- Congress, Presidency and Bureaucracy
- Separation of Powers
- Policy Making
- Civil Rights and Civil Liberties
- 14th Amendment
- helpful test taking tips
- and more.

Here is a trailer of the video:
What I liked about it:
- information is given in short spurts that are easy to understand
- the material is presented in an engaging manner by other high school students ~ I think that would be appealing to students
- the accompanying digital workbook and quizzes seem helpful
I really did not dislike anything about it. My students are still too young for this, but I am happy to have this around as a resource for when we study American Government and Politics.
