US Government & Economics - 3rd & 4th Periods

Completion of US Government class is a Social Science graduation requirement for the Sacramento City Unified School District. As a 12th grade class, students develop a greater understanding and appreciation for the United States system of government, comparative systems of government, and American state and local governments, as well as developing an understanding of the events of the world.

Parents checking out this site are encouraged to make sure their students are keeping up with class work. I try to post new assignments the same day they are given to students. Click on the current unit underneath Assignments (the most recent unit is on top). To check current grades, please access Infinite Campus Parent Portal link on the Sacramento City Unified School District home page. Note that INBs are graded at the end of each unit and those scores will not be posted until that time. Please check your student's INB during each unit to verify their progress with unit assignments.

Students are required to keep an "Interactive Note Book" or INB for this class. This consists of a folder with two pockets and notebook prongs. Assignments are kept in the pronged portion of the folder in the order the assignments were given. An Assignment Record Sheet serves as the table of contents listing the number of the assignment, the date it was assigned, the name of the assignment, and the points available for the assignment.
