Unit 1 of this semester-long course takes a neutral, factual, and interactive approach to the Constitution, 3 branches of government, key amendments, the bureaucracy, and more, all through the lens of 21st century issues!

Class experience

US Grade 6 - 8
This class is taught in English.
The purpose of this course is truly to gain a more realistic understanding of how the government is structured today, the role it has in our daily lives, and how to be a more knowledgeable, responsible citizen. In this unit, students will gain a thorough understanding of the constitution, learn about the three branches of government in detail, and then learn about the purpose and role of administrative agencies. 
A veteran of the U.S. Army Military Police Corps, I hold both bachelor and masters degrees in Legal Studies and spent the last two decades working with various government agencies, attorney's, victims rights advocates, judges, and law enforcement officers. 

I'm also a homeschool mom of two and I run a small business offering live civics courses to teens and tweens in the local community.  Please refer to my teacher profile, or feel free to message me with further questions! 
Homework Offered
Homework will be assigned on specific weeks, after the first day of instruction that week. Homework may consist of a worksheet, online activity, or research assignment. All homework is designed to reinforce the concepts, to solidify understanding, and to allow students the opportunity to apply these concepts to real life situations. Students will be expected to complete the assignments individually, by Day 2 of that week. We will then review the assignment as a class during Day 2. Some homework assignments may also be submitted via GoogleDrive to be reviewed by the instructor and returned with comments.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
I will provide an informal assessment of your student upon completion of this course. If a student completes all four units, a formal letter grade can also be provided.
