Hello! My name is Mrs. Scalo and I am your Civics teacher. I am looking forward to an exciting year!
Please feel free to contact me at ScaloC@pwcs.edu with questions and concerns throughout the year.
Civics is all about what it means to be a citizen and participate in government.
Economics is the study of how people make choices and use their resources.
This year in social studies, we will learn about what it means to be a citizen of Virginia and the United States. We will discover how our local, state, and national governments make decisions for our county, state, and nation. We will also explore the ways people make economic choices and how ordinary citizens can make a difference in their communities. We will challenge ourselves to think critically, historically, politically, and economically to make sense of our nation through the use of primary and secondary sources.
