Dear Student & Parent,
We would like to welcome you and your child to the state mandated Civics—a fascinating course that I are excited to be teaching!
Central to the content is an in-depth examination of the roles American citizens-including students-play in our political and economic systems. This important information is presented through in-depth rigorous assignments, such as Document Based Questions (DBQ) and Common Summative Mastery Assessments.
These assignments are rich in history; context and writing are an integral focus of the curriculum. Student progress will be measured via end of unit assessments, quarterly benchmark assessments and the state mandated end of course exam. The Civics end of course exam will be 30% of the year-end course grade.
