Government & Economics is essentially two semester-long courses joined into one year-long course.

In the first half of the year, we study American government. We will look at the three branches (executive, legislative, judicial) and three levels (federal, state, local) of government.  The approach to the material is founded in differing interpretations of the Constitution, how government affects our daily lives, and how we - "the people" - can affect government.

In the second half of the year, we study basic economic principles in micro and macro-economics (these are from the lens of the American free enterprise system). In addition, we put the knowledge into practice using a personal finance handbook to guide students through necessary economic life skills like budgeting, credit card debt, and choosing an apartment.

Be sure to check back as more sections will be added as work is assigned.
