Welcome to Civics 101. This class is a study in citizenship and what it means to be an American citizen. We will begin our journey by studying the United States Constitution . In order for any of us to truly understand who we are as a people..we need to know the law of the land! Throughout this course, we will refer to this document often. We will study: the relationships between State and Federal government, history of political parties, court cases...etc. Exams will be primarily essay based and there will be a project assigned mid semester.
