This is the third in our series for students taking the Virginia Civics SOL State Exam.

This lesson includes:
• Completed lesson plan with step-by-step instructions

Mr. Raymond’s Civics Academy was designed for students taking the Virginia Civics SOL Exam and the Florida Civics End-of-Course (EOC) Exam. However, as many states are implementing Civics Exams, these videos will work for all students of Civics, US Government, and US History. Currently, students have to pass a civics state exam in order to graduate in Idaho, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Arizona, North Dakota, Louisiana, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Utah – as well as state social studies tests such as Texas’ STAAR exam, as well as Virginia’s Civics SOL exam. These videos look at all of the civics benchmarks that will be tested on most state civics exams.
