For the 2007-2008 Fall term I will be teaching Civics
Studies 11. This course is a study of government, political decision-making,
and what it means to be an informed Canadian citizen. A responsible informed
citizen can then participate in local, national, and global contexts. The
goal of this course is to create informed, active, and global citizens.
Unit 1 - The Good Citizen
Unit 2 - The Informed Citizen
Unit 3 - The Active Citizen
Unit 4 - The Global Citizen
If you are thinking about taking Civic Studies 11 and want
to get a head start here are some websites which might interest you. What
system of government does Canada have? If you answered Parliamentary, you
have some background already. If you want to find out more about our
Constitutional Monarchy and wonder why Canada has an absent monarch, visit
What is Parliamentary Government to learn more about our government.
Government of Canada, is Canada’s federal government’s official website.
For landed immigrants these sites offer information about
gaining Canadian citizenship.
Citizenship Practice Test
This fall I look forward to exploring new ways to be
active citizens not only in Canada but in our global community. I hope to
see you in class.
