​​In this five-section elective, high-school students will learn about the rights and responsibilities of being an American citizen. By studying different forms of government, students will investigate what motivated America’s founding fathers as they drafted the U.S. Constitution. Students will also learn about the branches of the U.S. government as laid out in the Constitution and about the structure of state and local governments. In each unit, students will complete an in-depth project related to that unit’s topic.

Students will investigate not only the personal rights and responsibilities of citizenship, but also will discuss the role of religion in government and the implications that American politics and foreign policy have internationally. This course explores the many facets of America’s government. Lessons cover the fundamental values and principles, rights, responsibilities, and limits, the Bill of Rights and the Constitution, the role of the president, lawmakers, and judges, state government, taxation, diversity, and the role of religion in our government. The course encourages students to understand the present system in America by looking at the past.
