Government and Economics Skills

Book Title: United States Government: Democracy in Action

     Economics: Principles in Action

Course Goal/Overview:

This course is designed to make students aware of the privileges and responsibilities of being a citizen of the United States.

The first semester of the course aims to prepare students with the knowledge that they will need as future voters. We will study the structure, powers, and responsibilities of our government as well as the processes that are used to create public policy. Emphasis will be placed on the core ideals and values that make the American political system unique and the way that our government operates at the national level.

The second semester of the course will focus on economics. Considering the economy on a larger scale as well as personal finances, our goal is to develop skills that are useful in and outside of the classroom.
