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.
For the month of February, students will study a unit on Law before starting the Economics portion of our curriculum. Information on the third quarter research assignment will be distributed in the early part of the month. Students will also participate in a mock criminal trial as the conclusion to our unit on Law.
The next current events homework is due by Friday, 2/12.
