Welcome to Government and Civic Life

Welcome to 8th grade Civics. 

In this course students will engage in studying Civics as set forth by the Massachusetts Social Studies  Frameworks. Students will study the roots and foundations of democratic government through primary documents such as the United States and Massachusetts Constitutions, how and why government institutions developed, how government evolves through legislation and court decisions, and how individuals exercise their rights and civic responsibilities to maintain a healthy democracy in the nation and the Commonwealth.
