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.
There will be a Ch. 5 Test on Tuesday, 9/30. Students have already received a study guide for this and it is also attached below in pdf format. During the month of October, we will be simulating a presidential election campaign for each class, and by the end of the month students will have elected a president and vice president for their class. We are also continuing our study of the Constitution with an examination of the most significant amendments that were passed since its ratification.
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
