Curriculum: Exploring Government (Notgrass) 


Course Description: “Students explore the government of the United States from its beginning to the present with special emphasis on the Biblical pattern for government and on the U.S. Constitution. By learning about the operations of federal, state, and local government, and about issues facing our nation today, students become better equipped to understand, pray for, and be involved in our country’s government” (Notgrass). It’s an election year! And we will examine the election process closely in the fall semester together using Scholastic Election 2020 magazines/workbooks (provided by teacher) to track the election and results. Students will study topics such as a biblical foundation for government, the roots of government through history, building American government, the Constitution, Congress, Executive, and Judiciary, modern bureaucracy, state and local government, taxes and spending, international relations, contemporary issues and citizens’ rights and responsibilities. This class will include periodic 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! (30 weeks)
