The Living Constitution |Connecting the Constitution to Today - Civics - FLEX

In this 18 week class, students will see how The Constitution is alive and well each and every day in many ways, more than just checks and balances! It is a great class for those needing to take Civics or US Gov from a certified teacher.

Class Experience

Students will learn about the structure and content of the Constitution by reading and analyzing, as well as connecting to current events.
With a Masters Degree in Education and thirty years of teaching experience, your child is in expert hands!  Additionally, I have many (over 15) years of teaching Government and Civics to students in 7th through 12th grade.
Students will be asked to submit evidence of learning in the form of one of the following (they will have a choice): 
•	brief written paragraphs consisting of making a claim and supporting it with evidence
•	a Bitmoji slide or other graphic representation (PowerPoint, Canva, Prezi, etc.)
•	a video post 
Other choices will be considered if proposed and justified by the student.

Students will also be expected to interact with each other by posting or commenting on each other’s posts or replying to discussion posts on the Outschool class page.
Handouts will be sent and may need to be printed. It is recommended that students have paper and pen handy, as well as a folder to keep their work in.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Every submitted assignment will be given thorough written feedback.
Quiz grades will be shared with student and parent.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
As students learn about current events, there is a chance that they may encounter stories that are upsetting or shocking. Parents are encouraged to monitor their children and check in with them when they are doing the research component of the course.
We will regularly refer to The Constitution and The Bill of Rights during the class. Additionally, students may be assigned videos through Crash Course Government or current event articles through Newsela.
