Overview–‘We The People’ is a heterogeneous (mixed ability level) class that takes a look at the foundations of our American political ideals and explores how those beliefs shape our students today.
We will begin our journey by learning the differences between liberals and conservatives, as well as Democrats and Republicans, through a series of classroom activites. The students will then learn where their own ideologies fit in and analyze the sources of their opinions.
We will also take a philosophical and historical look at our system of government and understand how our plan of government and our rights have struggled to evolve throughout this great experiment we call a democracy.
It is my intent to make this course as real and as relevant as possible. Students and parents are encouraged to stay well informed about the local, national, and international events so we can actively examine these issues and create a dialogue about the very key question that divides many Americans’ beliefs: What should be the role of our American government?

Daily Updates–In the space provided below on this very webpage, I will be posting the agenda for each WTP class so that parents and students may be well informed about classroom activities and assignments that occurred during our class time together. It is my hope that students will check in frequently to this webpage to serve as a reminder for homework assignments, tests, or projects, as well as to update any students who were absent from class.
Moreover, I hope that parents will use this page to monitor our daily agenda to help ensure their student’s success.
