Civics: Foundations of Citizenship

Civics is a one-semester course that provides an in-depth look at the community of people who make up the country we live in. Students learn about who Americans are, what American culture looks like, and how important diversity is in this country.  The course also explores the American economy and forms of government. Students gain an understanding of how the government functions. They also learn what it means to be an American citizen, including both the rights and responsibilities of living in the United States. The course concludes by discussing how to get involved in your local government and to work for the common good of your community.
