Welcome! This course will include the Government portion of the Gov/Econ Class with emphasis on development of educated and engaged citizens! The standards required by the state of Arizona Department of Education are embedded in a rigorous curriculum. We will be reviewing some material presented at earlier grades as well as learning new material. We will be analyzing economic events and their impact on both the past and present. You will have the opportunity to work in a variety of learning situations—roleplay, individually, in small groups, and as a large classroom. Critical thinking skills, such as decision making, problem solving, and cause and effect will be emphasized. In order to be successful, you must take responsibility for your learning.
Each student is required to bring to class on a daily basis:
- Red pens
- Blue or black pens
- highlighter, preferably 2 colors
- binder or folder for history notes/materials
- Colored pencils
- Optional: flashdrive (for saving projects and sources)
See you in class!
