We The People: Do you “Feel the Bern”? Do you want to “Make America Great Again”? Do you “Like Ike”? Do you want “A Chicken in Every Pot”? Learn about how our government works as we prepare to choose the next man - or woman! - in charge. But there’s more to running this country: what about your rights and responsibilities? How do laws get made? How do the voting rights issues happening now connect to suffrage and emancipation? We will look beyond the campaigns to better understand the country we live in. Class will have an academic focus balanced with hands-on activities and authentic learning experiences. Students will collaborate, communicate, and think critically.
