This course explores rights and
responsibilities associated with being an active citizen in a democratic
society. Students will explore issues of civic importance such as healthy
schools, community planning, environmental responsibility, and the influence of
social media, while developing their understanding of the role of civic
engagement and of political processes in the local, national, and/or global community.
Students will apply the concepts of political thinking and the political
inquiry process to investigate, and express informed opinions about, a range of
political issues and developments that are both of significance in today’s
world and of personal interest to them.
