In the first term we will delve into the history and working of our Federal Government. What are the three branches? Why were they created? How do they function? We will read parts of the constitution and bill of rights. The class will also follow the national election. As part of our research we will explore the election process including: what will we see on the ballot? What is a political party. What are the rights and responsibilities of participants the voting process. What is the history and efficacy of the electoral college. You can’t talk about the election without talking about who can vote and the history of who gets the right to vote and how it has evolved since the inception of our nation. In the second term we will turn our attention to our state government. What is the importance of levels of government from national, to state to local. We will cover how the state government is structured and how it works. What are states rights and responsibilities. Who are the people who run our state. When are state elections and what will you see on the ballot. The third term will focus on local government. What is the structure? How does our city government work? Who are the people in our city government? When are elections and what will you see on the ballot? We will talk about the importance and power of local government. How to get involved and have a voice in the community in which we live. The goal of this class for the spring term is to find ways to be advocates of the changes we want to see in our community.
