    This course is designed to meet the NYS graduation requirement for “Participation in Government,” and is especially designed for those students who have been in the Developmental Regents courses in previous years.  The curriculum covered is basically the same as for the traditional course, but more emphasis is placed upon skill building, such as note-taking and discussion techniques.  Students will be required to complete the Community Service project as well as a project relating to the election process.  Regular quizzes and homework assignments also figure into the grade, as does class work.  This course concludes with a local final examination.
