In this class, we will examine our government's philosophical foundations, and aspects of the American political tradition. We will also explore students' civic identity in modern America. Students will develop critical-thinking skills through the analysis of primary documents and investigations of the philosophies that helped establish our government. We will explore the roots of our government and its three branches, political parties, and elections. We will use simulations to learn about fundamental concepts, from the legislative and judicial branches of government to economics. 

Welcome to the moodle web page/assignment list for 9th grade Honors Civics with Mrs. Larson.

Civics is about you and your community. Our goal is to inform and engage you so that you may be empowered to make economic and political decisions as well as serve the people in your community through good citizenship.

Grade 7 features history as the lead discipline with a strong secondary emphasis on citizenship and government. The interdisciplinary “Studies” approach is further enhanced with important economics and geography content that round out the study of United States history.  Students learn about people, issues and events of significance to this nation’s history from 1800 to the current era of globalization.  Students study civics and economic principles in depth, drawing connections between these disciplines and history to explain the impact of various policies on how people lived, worked and functioned in society.  They create and use detailed maps of places in the United States and conduct historical inquiry on a topic in the nation’s history.

8th grade Social Studies is a survey class of early American History. From Columbus and the first European contact in the America's through the late 1800's , students will learn about how the United States came to be the country it is today.
