Welcome to 8th Grade Civics and Economics

Civics and Economics is an exciting journey of discovery where students examine the roles that citizens play in the political, governmental, and economic systems in the United States. Students will examine the constitutions of Virginia and the United States of America; identify the rights, duties, and responsibilities of citizens; and describe the structure and operation of government at the local, state, and national levels. Students also investigate the process by which decisions are made in the American market economy and explain the government’s role in it.
