8th Grade U.S. History- Martino Jr. High
I will be using the school's step system in the classroom.
U.S. Government is a 7th grade cycle class that your student will have for one trimester. Students will explore the beginnings of our nation and the development of our government based upon democratic principles. Students will take the U.S. Constitution and the Illinois Constitution in this class. They need to pass both exams in order to graduate from junior high. There is very little homework in the U.S. Government cycle - most assignments and activities will be completed during class. Students may retake the U.S. Constitution and the Illinois Constitution once - unless he/she does not pass the test.
