I believe social studies is the most important class because it gives you information you can use to vote, read the newspaper, get a job, protect your job, buy a house, protect your house, and many other everyday real life events.

Government class is vital to maintaining control over our democracy. The first three words of the constitution are WE THE PEOPLE, but Americans don’t act like it. You will learn how to inform yourself so you don’t have to be manipulated by radio hosts, television hosts, or online bloggers. You will also learn what the government is supposed to do, what it is allowed to do, but also what it actually does and who it does it for. This is the most important class ever.
Every American should read the constitution.
We will read the constitution and determine what the power, structure, and rules of government are.
You will evaluate many situations in current events and websites

In addition to swear words, I do not allow other words to be said in class. While you may say them to be funny and not hateful, the context makes them hateful. History has long lists of examples of society allowing the mistreatment of others. It starts small, such as using a word describing a characteristic shared by a specific group of people to mean stupid. You are not allowed to use retarded, gay, fag, queer or any other word that is used in the same way.
If it is a problem that we cannot agree on, you will write a paper about the history of the word.
I am just as serious about the term of endearment among some African Americans: nigga or nigger. I absolutely won’t tolerate this.
