Grade 13 - Electives

Civics (Credit: 0.50)

With our five-unit Ignitia Civics course, give your students the information they need to be responsible citizens. Students will investigate not only the personal rights and responsibilities of citizenship, but also will discuss the role of religion in government and the implications that American politics and foreign policy have internationally. As a part of a complete learning management system, civics is a self-directed course infused with technology-based lessons, tools, and exercises to enrich learning for students, and streamline instruction and administrative tasks for teachers. Like all Ignitia courses, Bible verses (KJV) and biblical references support the development of a Christian worldview and encourage practical Christian living.

Created for students in grades 7-12, this five-unit course explores the many facets of America's government. Lessons cover the fundamental values and principles, rights, responsibilities, and limits, the Bill of Rights and the Constitution, the role of the president, lawmakers, and judges, state government, taxation, diversity, and the role of religion in our government. The course encourages students to understand the present system in America by looking at the past. The course units include text-based lessons, on and off-computer exercises, special projects, learning games, quizzes, and tests that appeal to today's digital generation and help teachers to evaluate progress and mastery of the materials. Ignitia Civics enriches the educational experience for Christian school students and sparks a passion for learning.

Throughout the course, students will explore the following topics:
  • A New Nation
  • The Constitution
  • Branches of Government
  • Government by the People
  • Relationship to the World
