Summary

This Program of Studies (POS) outlines the Fairfax County (Virginia) instructional program for the subject area of Virginia/United States government. Noting that it has long been recognized since the founding of the nation that the general education of society has, at its core, a "civic mission," the POS aims to educate students about citizenship and inspire their active participation in the U.S. political system. It describes the curriculum content and identifies essential knowledge and skills of the program. Some of the topics explored in the classroom are: "Civic Life"; "Political Culture"; "Principles of American Constitutional Government"; "Public Policy"; "Civil Liberties and Civil Rights"; and "Skills for Participating in Civic Life." The Virginia/United States Government POS includes the seven components found in every Fairfax County Public School Program of Studies: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "Standards, Benchmarks, and Indicators"; (3) "Assessment"; (4) "Resources"; (5) "Adaptations To Accommodate Student Needs"; (6) "Model Lessons and Projects"; and (7) "Appendix." (BT)
