This week’s focus is on Foundations of Government:

Our Essential Understanding is: In order to be successful, systems must be flexible and foster cooperation to adapt to the changing needs and demands of society.

The Inquiry Questions for the unit are: What is government? What does government DO? What are the three levels of government? Why should we know what government does?

The students will work on theWhat is Government Hyperdoc this assignment is located in the Foundations Module in Canvas. All resources are located in the Foundations Module in Canvas. The focus is on understanding the three levels of government – federal, state, and local, as well as understanding what each level does or does not do. Students will complete a Notetaker assignment and a Levels of Government in the News assignment.

Every morning an Announcement posts at 7:00 am and this Announcement lists the objectives and the activities for the day. This Announcement posts at 8:00 pm Sunday night for Asynchronous Mondays work. Students must start at the Announcement.
