Enroll in Civics with Dolphin STEM Academy

Course Overview

A citizen is a person who is legally recognized by a state and entitled to the state’s rights and
privileges. Civics is the study of the rights and duties of such a person. One of the best ways to
understand your rights and duties is to study the government that defines and upholds them. In
Civics B, you will learn how Americans are linked to the government and each other through the
media and a number of political parties. You will also take a detailed look at civic responsibility
and what it means to be a contributing member of society. Finally, you will study how and why
the U.S. creates certain goods and services and you’ll see how political and economic decisions
made at home can affect foreign policy abroad.

Course Goals

By the end of this course, you will be able to do the following:
Discuss the role and importance of the media in connecting the public with the government.
Examine the relationship between local, state, and federal governments.
Explain the difference between personal and civic responsibilities.
Analyze the factors that influence an individual’s political attitudes.
Understand the importance of community service, civic improvement, and political activities.
Compare the U.S. free-enterprise system with other economic systems.
Explain how people organize economic systems for the production, distribution, and
consumption of goods and services.
Describe the effects of government policies on the free market.
Evaluate the use of national interest as a criterion for American foreign policy.
