Welcome to 7th Grade Civics and Economics! Brace yourself for a challenging year 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.
Students are currently studying the executive branch of our federal government. They are also participating in a class election campaign for the election of a class president. There is also a ballot on the google classroom, where students can vote for three major ticket items taken from November's actual ballot. I plan on reporting to my classes the results on what my students think about those candidates and issues. These certainly are exciting times in Civics!
