Civics Summative Assessment

ESSENTIAL QUESTIONS:

  • What knowledge, skills, and dispositions (intention to act) does a person need in order to be a powerful civic actor in our democracy and in our community? 
  • How will I use my rights and responsibilities to promote the common good in our democracy and community? 


ENDURING UNDERSTANDINGS:

  • Democracy is a system of government based on big ideas. One of these ideas is that the power of government comes from the people. Another is that people must be informed and participate for our democracy and government to work.   
  • Individuals in a democracy have many rights. These rights allow them to exercise their power. But these rights are limited, and some individuals’ rights are more limited than others.
