In Civics/Economics, students will examine the roles citizens play in the political, governmental, and economic systems in the United States. Students will study the constitutions of Virginia and the United States, the rights, duties, and responsibilities of citizens, the structure and operation of government, the American market economy and the government’s role in it. The standards identify personal character traits, such as patriotism, respect for the law, willingness to perform public service, and a sense of civic duty, that facilitate thoughtful and effective active participation in the civic life of an increasingly diverse democratic society.
