This course will study the democratic foundations of our federal government. Emphasis will be placed on the structures of government as established in the Constitution and citizen responsibilities and involvement. Students will be expected to do research projects, work in cooperative groups, present orally, participate in simulations, and maintain a class notebook. All units are aligned to the Delaware State Social Studies Standards.
Assignments, classwork, quizzes, assessments, and projects are assigned points based on the depth of knowledge assessed.
