Welcome to U.S. Government!
Our focus is going to be on the Constitution, and your rights and
responsibilities as a citizen.
I hope we have some great discussions during our classtimes together, and that you walk away with a better understanding of how our country works. Being an informed citizen is so important these days; it enables you to participate in government to the fullest extent.
Listen in class for exact assignments (questions, which lessons to read, etc.), but here's what I THINK it will be...
(YOU prepare primary source documents for the lessons we'll read in class. So these aren't reading assignments, these are 'preparation' assignments.)
