Social Studies: Government
Instructor: Ms. Whalen   
"The Participation in Government core curriculum is designed to be a culminating course of study that focuses
on Social Studies Learning Standard 5—Civics, Citizenship, and Government (the civics standard). Participation in
Government is the civics capstone of a student’s K–12 social studies experience. Upon entering 12th grade,
students should be ready to synthesize and apply this content-rich experience to the study of contemporary
and/or historic public issues and to increase the student’s awareness of their rights and responsibilities as a
citizen. The term participation is interpreted in its broad sense. It is designed to engage students in the analysis of
public policies and issues that are relevant to individual students. Fundamental to Participation in Government is
a course of study that has students defining, analyzing, monitoring, and discussing issues and policies. The course reflects:
• An issue-based approach to public policy,
• The tools and skills needed in real-world learning experiences, and
• The knowledge needed for effective citizenship."
