Welcome to Roots of American History/Civics at Enlightenment School! This year, we will explore the origins of the American democratic system while looking at how the constitution embodies the values and purposes set up by the founding fathers. We will examine the structure and function of our government on a national, state and local level while showing how each level is interrelated.
As part of the course, students will also study how to become responsible and knowledgeable citizens who vote and participate in community activities.
I hope that you leave this class knowing more about the world and being better equipped to succeed as a student and beyond. Many challenges lay ahead—but so do many achievements!
