Mr. Robert Trifu « Teacher Connection / Documents / Calendar

   Welcome to 7th Grade Civics and Economics! Brace yourself for a challenging last semester 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.

     A select number of students that chose to do an essay on a city council proposal will be participating in a mock commission meeting at the Lady Lake Town Hall on Thursday, 1/26. This fits right into our curriculum as we are currently studying local government - its organization, function, and resources. Then we will begin a unit on law, which will culminate in all students participating in a mock criminal trial as we transform the classroom into a court room.
