Welcome to 7th Grade Civics and Economics! Brace yourself for a
challenging second semester 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.
During the month of February, we will begin a study of local government and then launch into a unit on law. Third quarter project information will be distributed during the second week of the month. Towards the end of the month, we will shift our focus to the world of economics.
The next current events/community service homework will be due 2/13.
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
