CITIZENSHIP 9


COURSE INFORMATION

The course outline, reading calendar and Service Learning Project (SLP) are below. These documents explain the course and what topics we will be discussing each week.

  • All work is submitted using Google Classroom, please do not e-mail Mr. Bragg any of your assignments!
  • Political & Social Issues: You will be expected to work on issues that are important and possibly contentious. A classroom environment that cultivates sensitivity and respect is central to this course. You are learning about and working with historic and current social issues on local, national and global scales.
  • Digital Citizenship & Etiquette: The rubrics for all major unit projects have a Digital Citizenship component. It equates to roughly 10% of projects and is reduced only when students misuse their devices during class time.
  • E-mail etiquette is taught early on in the course.
