Welcome to Honors Civics!
Students will develop an understanding of the American system of government, economics, politics, law and international relations. Topics such as fundamental rights, separation of powers, supply and demand, prices and competition, roles of political parties, civil and criminal legal processes, state and local governments, and world affairs will be analyzed in detail using inter- disciplinary sources and methods. Students will also understand the rights, responsibilities, and roles of citizenship. Students will learn components of personal financial literacy (PFL) including financial planning and budgeting, investing, managing debt/credit, and understanding insurance. The accelerated curriculum will allow students to pursue in-depth projects, problem-based learning, and higher levels of thinking in discussions, presentations and writing which will challenge Honors students. Students must register for both A and B semesters.
