Our class will be busy this semester writing, researching, and debating the responsibilities of a citizen in a democratic society and the basic attitudes and understanding of what is necessary for citizenship. Topics we will cover include the Constitution, the three levels of government, current events, politics, elections, the judicial system, and state and local government. In addition, each student will be required to pass the FEMA 0700 National Incident Management System (NIMS) an introduction certification.
