CIVICS & U.S. GOVERNMENT

As homeschooling families, we sometimes feel the effects of government legislation more than other families. Our rights as parents to protect, instruct, form, and educate our children are among our most treasured. Our children should be allowed to understand our government, where it comes from, what its job is, and what our role as citizens should be.
My government classes will involve much discussion as it is so essential for students to understand the concepts studied.
I will give homework, typically short essay answers or complete essays, and give a test for each work studied. Each class will have a written final exam or final project.
