As a culminating activity of their study of the Declaration of Independence, senior government students created illustrated children’s books explaining key details, as well as the principles of government embodied in the document. They shared their creations with their third grade reading buddies. After the seniors read their books to their buddies, their buddies had their turn to read, and many of them read complex words without even stumbling. The Cosby family dog, Riley, even got into the spirit of learning about the Declaration of Independence.
Government students color code their notes for standards covered on the ACT, the test that determines which college acceptance and scholarships they receive, as well as color coding the standards covered by the Civics Exam, the test every Alabama senior must pass in order to graduate. The Central senior class has consistently averaged in the 80% range on the annual Civics Exam.
