Welcome to 7th Grade Civics and Economics! Brace yourself for a
challenging year of what I 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.
We are studying the events leading to the writing of the Declaration of Independence. In September, there will be a considerable amount of attention given to our founding documents so that students have a working knowledge of their significance. They will also be doing class research for their first quarter project which highlights a presidential election year campaign. Details will be distributed to students early in September. I will also be posting that rubric/project information file on this web site by Sept. 5th.
Lesson Topics and Assignments will be posted
weekly on the calendar. I will also post pdf files of various items for
students (study guides, homework and project rubrics) made available
