Description
In this course, students will be introduced to the concept of government, politics, and civic life. They will examine the origins, functions, and structure of our government and discuss the principles and values that the U.S. Constitution promotes. They will study political structure and process, including political parties, voting, and foreign policy. Students will also describe and evaluate the civic and personal responsibilities of citizens, including what it means to be a member of a state and the nation. They will research a public issue, evaluate how to make a reasoned argument, and propose solutions. They will also examine the impact of media on the political process and on social opinion. As a final project, they will research a local community service project and describe how the experience relates to the American ideal of participation.
