THE CIVICS JOURNEY
WE THE PEOPLE
THE AMERICAN LEGAL SYSTEM
CONSTITUTION & BILL OF RIGHTS
CHOICES IN LITTLE ROCK
Your Task: Civics has always been a class that I’ve had a hard time explaining to other students. The short and sweet of it is that it’s about citizenship but as you know having taken it, it’s about a lot more than that. I’ve always found it difficult to just use a couple of sentences to describe what the class is all about and I also think students have a hard time figuring out what it’s all about as well. For your final assignment, write a letter to a Civics student next year. Questions to Think About & Address: • Start by reflecting about the Civics journey, as depicted above. • What were your initial expectations coming into the course? How have they changed now that you have finished the course? • Without giving away too much, what have you learned from the course? • What was the most valuable part of the course to you? • What advice can you have to students who are about to embark on the Civics journey? Requirements: • Please plan out your letter and organize it into cohesive paragraphs (use the back) • Your letter must start: “Dear future 8th grader…” • 1-2 pages TYPED • Free from spelling, grammar, sentence structure errors • Shows evidence of reflection on the course This project is due on Friday June 15th printed out to Mr. V by 2:30 p.m. This assignment is worth 30% of your Final Exam grade!
