It’s time to give America a report card from a student’s perspective through this inquiry based unit. Its 2019, how has America been progressing over the past two hundred plus years? In this unit students inquire about the goals for our country developed by the founding fathers, found in the Preamble and still driving America to continuously be improving and changing for the better. But where are we today in our progress as a country? In this unit, students learn and interpret these goals and then rate America’s progress. They create a grading system and support their grades with evidence from the past 232 years of American history. In this interactive unit students also find themselves role-playing as members of congress, showing civic responsibility by writing letters to congress, and expressing their view points on America.
