The Villages Middle School

Mr. Robert Trifu « Teacher Connection / Documents / Calendar

   Welcome to 7th Grade Civics and Economics! Brace yourself for a challenging last month of what we hope will contain many positive educational experiences for you. By the end of this school year, you will have gained considerable knowledge and will be able to see the world more clearly so that the impact you will make upon it will have greater significance. I am looking forward to sharing this year with you and helping you succeed not only in this course, but in life as well - as you apply what you will learn to many of life's situations and better yourself as well as society.

    Every week, students will have some type of review of past Civics lessons to enable them to retain what was learned earlier in the year for the State Exam in May. We are currently studying economic systems of the world and the roles of business and labor in our capitalist economy.

CLICK on the standards/topics on the LEFT MARGIN to review all civics topics that will be on the EOC exam.
