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 some of our finest founding documents. They will gain an understanding of what rights are being protected by our government.
Don't forget to watch the first of the presidential debates on Monday night (9/26 at 9 PM on MSNBC). Great way to kick off Freedom Week!
