Government/Civics VH


High School Summer School / Virtual Courses -
Spring/Summer 2021

This course prepares students for informed and responsible participation as citizens of our constitutional democracy. Students deepen their understanding of the democratic values expressed in the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and other foundational documents of the United States. They learn the purposes and structures of government within the federal system. They also learn how citizens exert influence on public affairs and decisions. Throughout the course, students examine primary and secondary sources, including political cartoons, essays, and judicial opinions. Students also sharpen their writing skills in shorter tasks and assignments and by writing full informative and argumentative essays.
