Civic Studies 11
Cheryl's Weekly Feature


For the 2008-2009 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.

This site, Government of Canada, is Canada’s federal government’s official website.

For landed immigrants these sites offer information about gaining Canadian citizenship.

Canada Quiz

Canadian 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.
