Civics

Mrs. Suzanne Haverkorn

 

Civics is a subject that touches every person’s life. It teaches the value of being an active citizen in the community. It teaches the importance of taking part in politics and helping to choose the leaders of local, state and national government. It teaches how laws shape society and how they protect individuals. It teaches how the rights granted by the government come with responsibilities not to abuse those rights. This class will study all of these subjects and more as we learn about our system in a “democratic” discussion forum setting.

Sources used will be icivics.org. Students will also be required to participate in developing their own country.
