Civics Course Description
Why Civics Matters: The United States is a model of freedom, democracy, and economic strength for the rest of the world. Our goal in 7th grade Civics is to teach our students how to become informed and active citizens. This year our students will increase their understanding of the constitutional basis of our democracy and the basic values and principles on which our country was founded. The ultimate goal is to inspire our students to become the active, effective and responsible citizens of the future.
