American Government is a course about civic responsibility. Students will learn their role as a voter in our multicultural society, the structure of our federal, state and local systems, and general responsibilities as a citizen.
Consumer Economics is a study of how people organize for the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services. It is designed to enable students to understand enough economics to make reasoned judgements about
both personal economic questions and broader questions of economic policy in a complex and changing world. The course will deal with the economic concepts of scarcity and choice, opportunity costs and trade-off, productivity, economic systems and other fundamental economic concepts. Students will be assessed based on essays, tests, written research assignments, and group and individual projects.
