Civics, Social (Government)

Description

Social Civics is the study of how our government is organized and run at the national, state and local levels. Beginning with a look at how government developed, this course covers such topics as our federal constitution, political parties, and government policy and involvement in various areas of our lives, including the economy, education and foreign affairs. The course stresses the importance of citizen involvement.

Examples of tasks students complete in this subject include describing actions in the process of lawmaking, distinguishing among the various powers vested in the three branches of government, developing a position on the appropriate means of funding local services, and drafting a letter outlining a proposed solution for a current issue of the student’s own choosing.

There are 8 examinations in Social Civics. Munro, Kennelly and McCarthy, Social Civics, American School.
