Lesson 2.4 Muslim Empire (Layered Curriculum Day 4)

Unit 5: Genocide

Civics Curriculum

The first unit contains overarching themes including factors underlying the formation of the United States of America and its system of government. Domestic and foreign influences were catalysts in the foundation of our political system. Unit one identifies important vectors in the beginnings of American culture and society.

Unit two focuses on the United States Constitution as the essential document for the founding of the United States of America as a new nation. Several key ideas and documents that influenced the creation of the Constitution are spanned, as well as an in-depth examination of the Articles as they relate to government and citizens rights and responsibilities, and the continuing effect of the Constitution on contemporary issues.

Examined at the core of unit three are the structure and functionality of the United States government at the local, state, and federal levels. The lessons within are designed to challenge students to recognize cross-governmental similarities and differences, and apply such an understanding to events that significantly impact students’ lives.

The fourth and final unit moves outside of the borders of the United States and considers the impact of the United States system of government on a global scale. The lessons have been designed to engage students with the pertinent issues of world politics, international trade relations, and foreign affairs policies.
