    The program will integrate the study of the social, economic, and political problems of the early United States by starting with the framework of the American Revolution through the lead up to the Civil War. The course will concentrate on how citizens have interacted with the government of the United States throughout history. Students will also examine closely the foundational documents of our country and the study of principles of civics as they apply to the individual rights of workers and voters, and the civil rights of African Americans, women and other communities. Students will be encouraged to determine their role as a citizen in their community, country and world.
