AP Government Visits Somers Point to Teach Civics!
From Mr. Martirone
On Tuesday, June 11, 2019 students from the EHTHS’s AP Government & Politics classed teamed up with Megan Weimer’s ELL students at Jordan Road school. AP Government & Politics students are required by the College Board to complete a project that communicates their findings and experiences from class in a way that conveys or demonstrates their understanding of course content. The AP Students designed a 45-minute lessons ranging from civic duty to checks and balances. The AP students were required to develop a pre and post assessment of student understanding just like a real teacher.
The second part of the day included student groups playing a series of games via iCivics to more fully demonstrate their understanding of the morning’s lessons. iCivics is an organized founded by retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor to bring civics education alive for students of all ages and abilities. As a member of the iCivics teacher network I am given access to test out new games before they are launched to the general public. The AP students played with and competed against the Jordan Road students in games such as Responsibility Launcher, Power Play and Race to the White House. Civically engaged students now, will be civically active students later and our Civics Day was a first step at creating better citizens for the future.
