Students will pursue a deeper understanding of the institutions of American government. We will compare systems of government in the world today, and analyze the history and changing interpretations of the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the current state of the legislative, executive, and judiciary branches of government.


There will be an emphasis on civic literacy as students prepare to vote, participate in community activities, and assume the responsibilities of responsible United States citizenship.


Students will master fundamental microeconomic concepts, applying the tools (graphs, statistics, equations) from other subject areas to the understanding of operations and institutions of economic systems. 


Overall, this class aims to equip students with the skills and knowledge necessary to analyze and understand the role of the government in the economy, and to make informed decisions as responsible citizens. Students will develop critical thinking, analytical, and communication skills that will serve them well in their future academic and professional pursuits.


Reading Materials will be provided:

Animal Farm

Federalist Papers


The course will culminate in all students passing the United States Citizenship test.
