Civics and Government
The Civics and Government course will provide a comprehensive background for the understanding of United States citizenship and the foundations and operation of American government. Students will apply this understanding to current event topics relevant to our nation and our future. The course will also emphasize and encourage civic participation by the students. We will focus on topics including but not limited to: The Role of Government, Principles and Basis for the American Constitution; Purpose and Function of the 3 Branches of the U.S. Government; The U.S. Government in Action; Citizenship and Individual Rights; Political Parties and Elections; and The Function of State and Local Governments.
