Students will know Robert's Rules of Parliamentary Procedure, the meaning of: citizen, direct democracy, representative democracy, constitution, warrant article, annual report, election, moderator, chair, and other relevant vocabulary.

The future of democracy depends on young learners developing into responsible, educated citizens who understand and respect our justice system. The sad reality is that currently, many, if not most, early impressions about the justice system come from television and the mass media or from family members. These impressions are often inaccurate or unfavorable. The key to changing these inaccurate impressions is early education. This curriculum addresses these issues.
Students will learn about the history of the city from its founding and growth, by listening to a guest speaker and asking at least two proofread questions.
Students will be able to indicate the difference between a “rule” and a “law” and provide one example for each as evidenced by completion of the exit ticket.
