Curriculum: Uncle Sam and You Part I (Notgrass) & Student Workbook


Course Description:  How do we elect a President? What do Senators do? What is impeachment?  What is Labor Day? This civics course answers these questions and many more. Weekly lessons teach your child about the foundations of American government, the elections process, and how Federal, state, and local governments work (Notgrass). It’s an election year!  And we will examine the election process closely together using Scholastic Election 2020 magazines/workbooks (provided by teacher) to track the election and results. Students will study topics such as the election process, structure of US government, the Presidency, roles of Congress, patriotic symbols and ideals, the role of the US within the world, and a variety of American holidays. This class will include projects, videos and group activities to make learning come alive! This class is taught by Dawn Casas, a college professor and course developer. She has a Master’s in Education and a Ph.D. in Communication. A former public and private school teacher, she has homeschooled her own daughters for 11 years. She loves teaching students about our country through engaging experiences and creating a warm class environment!
