Key in Middle School
CIVICS & ECONOMICS – A balanced understanding of the foundations of government and the limited but crucial role it plays in supporting our economic system.
HISTORY – Looking at historical events through an economic lens helps students understand why events occurred as they did.
What’s Important to Understand?
