TOPICS IN AMERICAN GOVERNMENT
11th – 12th Grade
Credit – 1/2
Semester 1 or 2
Prerequisite: By teacher recommendation only
Topics in American Government is a course whose adapted and modified curricula is designed to meet certain lower-ability levels present in typical CHS classrooms. Because the Social Studies Department believes that, in many cases, the best way to group students for instruction is heterogeneously, some students enrolled in American Government will require adapted or modified curricula. These students will have individualized goals and will receive instruction and feedback based on their specific needs.
Topics in American Government may be used as a designation for students who require modifications in content, standards, and/or grading in the American Government course. Texts and written assignments will follow the same thematic and skill content, but will be adjusted for developmental level. (This course does not qualify for NCAA eligibility.)
