Make your voice heard!
While many people hear the word government and automatically associate it with inactivity and untruth, government is an exciting process! During this course we will look at the foundations of our country and determine how our country is organized and run. We will also spend some time discovering ways that we can become active citizens. As we are part of a democracy, government is of the people and for the people as well as by the people. We will examine what role you as 16 and 17 year olds play in that process and look at ways that you will be affected by our government in the years to come. Learn as much as you can and grow into proactive citizens who work to better the good and change the bad. After all, that is what our American system of government empowers us to do!
