8th – 12th Grade

Jerelyn Sandtner

Course Description:  The Constitution is the cornerstone for American Freedoms.  Students taking this class will watch and discuss Michael Farris’ Constitutional Literacy DVD series (published by Apologia Educational Services, 2014), complete chapter exercises in the accompanying workbook, and write weekly essays on chapter assignments.  There will be quizzes and two cumulative tests.  Lectures will help students increase their understanding of the history, weight, and importance of this unique document and become a part of American citizenry pride.  Topics include: the Constitution’s Creation, the power it grants, the second amendment, due process, international law, commerce and general welfare clauses, abortion “rights,” “homosexual rights,” and more.  Teacher will grade quizzes and assessments.  This is strictly a high school class as some topics warrant a level of maturity.
