  • Students' Bills Passed in National E-Congress

    This spring the Mrs. Fuhrman’s senior American Government classes participated in the Youth Leadership Initiative’s National E-Congress to foster skills in the political process for high school students. The website is an interactive online legislation simulation that allows for students to experience first-hand how a bill becomes a law. Students worked alone or in pairs to propose legislation that was then considered by a committee of high school students in another participating classroom, who could pass, reject or amend the bill. The proposed bills ranged in topics from solving environmental problems and promoting space exploration to education reform and military spending.

    Students worked hard to prepare thorough and well thought-out bills to present to the E-Congress. From the Committee Phase, twenty Delone Catholic students had their bills sent to the House floor phase in which high school students throughout the country cast votes. Those students include, Mackenzie Russell, Diana Biesecker, Caroline Mace, William (Ruiyang) Wang, Max Kirby, Melinda Baker, Peter Moffatt, Jacob Blackwell, Nathan Holt, Nile Bowser, Kesley Myers, Emily Buck, Maria Waminal, Mackenzie Miller, Charlie Hoerl, Julia Whiteleather, Julie Thackston, Christina DiGregory, Madeline Rang, and Dimitri Partenza. Nine of the thirteen bills considered during the House Floor Phase were passed.

    Congratulations to these students for their hard work and dedication throughout this project!

    The Youth Leadership Initiative at the University of Virginia Center for Politics is dedicated to increasing civic engagement by providing teachers with the best civics education materials and programs. Research shows that quality civics education programs are essential to creating lifelong citizenship and YLI programs empower students to take responsibility for our democracy.

    Practice not only the problems but also within the timeframe.

    Plug in answer choices.

    Don’t rush.

    Know how your calculator works; use a graphing calculator if you have one.

    Go into it with the correct mindset – think positively!

    Do all of the problems.

    Guess if you need to.

    Get a good night sleep. 

    Listen to Mozart.

    Take a snack.

  • Seniors Solving Problems, by Cameron O'Malley

    During my first day here at Delone Catholic, Mrs. Fuhrman decided to have me read over the student responses from their first day of American Government class to better know the students. Each student was asked “what problems do you want to be part of the solution for,” and after going through each response I got such a strong sense of community and partnership. The students showed their compassion to people from every background and each wanted to do their best to help those less fortunate than themselves.

    The overwhelming majority of responses dealt directly with world hunger as well as trying to help children receive the proper education all over the world. They also talked about how they are striving to create a cleaner and healthier environment and to create technology to help solve world problems. Students are also very concerned in creating an equal societal environment for everyone, no matter was race or gender one is. Through each response, the students reflected what it means to be part of a school and religious community by using the gifts God gave them and implementing it for good.

  • Welcoming Ms. Cameron O'Malley

    The Social Studies Department welcomes Ms. Cameron O'Malley, a junior at Mount St. Mary's University who will be interning with Mrs. Fuhrman during the Spring Semester. Ms. O'Malley shared a few words of introduction with us.

    "My name is Cameron O'Malley and I will be a student intern for the rest of the semester in Mrs. Fuhrman’s class. I am a Junior at Mount Saint Mary’s University studying Secondary Education and History. I was born and raised in Annapolis, Maryland and I attended St. Mary’s High School. At the Mount I am Vice President of the Education Club and play for the club ice hockey team and serve as the club’s Vice President of Community Relations. I am looking forward to providing support in the classroom assisting students with reaching their fullest potential and accomplishing their goals. When I am not in school, I spend summers on Lake George in the Adirondacks hiking, boating, and relaxing with my extended family. I am an avid dog lover and love to play with my two English Springer Spaniel puppies, Tucker and Maisy. I am excited to be a part of the Delone Catholic community and cannot wait to get to know everyone."

  • Placement Breakdown

    As underclassmen begin/continue to think about their classes for next year, we thought it would be helpful to provide the attached tables which show the placement options based on current and previous classes and grades.  Please keep in mind that having the minimum average required for a course DOES NOT guarantee acceptance into the course.  Other considerations, including student work ethic and potential for success, are part of the teacher recommendation requirement.

     Note:  One new requirement is that any student planning to enroll in Algebra II Trigonometry must not only meet the minimum grade requirement, but must also earn a minimum grade on the Algebra II Trigonometry placement test to be given early in April.

    If you have any questions, please see your Math Teacher or stop by to talk with the Mathematics Department Chairperson - Mrs. Sneeringer (Rm. 19).

  • A Project-Based Approach to Teaching American Government

    Solving problems as a community - isn't that the true purpose of government? In the semester long American Government-A course taught to seniors, Mrs. Fuhrman and Mr. Fournie use project-based learning (PBL) units designed by the Buck Institute for Education to teach Delone Catholic students the skills of collective problem-solving: articulating an issue and , reviewing what is known about it, identifying what needs to be known in order to address it, conducting research, brainstorming possible solutions, considering each proposal, making a decision, implementing a solution and evaluating the results. These skills will prepare students to be strong citizens and professionals in an ever changing world.

    In Can We Believe This?, students will learn how to discern the trustworthiness of a media source.

    In A Government for Xlandia, students will learn about the features of democracy in order to help the fictional nation of Xlandia, which has just overthrown their authoritarian dictator, to plan for a more democratic future.

    In A Better Budget, students will learn how to make tough decisions about potential cuts to the federal budget, their impact on the local community and the need for compromise between liberals and conservatives.

    In On the Campaign Trail, students will learn about the ethical dilemmas and modern realities of the U.S. election system.

    In Fighting Chance, students will analyze the strength of a case before the Supreme Court.

    In Not in My Backyard, students will familiarize themselves with policy-making at a local level.

    As students proceed through these projects, they will learn the basics of American Government and active citizenship. In addition to these PBL units, students will participate in the Youth Leadership Initiative's National eCongress, examine the growth of presidential power and the executive branch, and prepare their own plans for solving problems identified in their local community.

  • Links on the portfolio

    I understand that students cannot always access all of the links on the portfolio.  The forms attached to these links are attached.  To use them correctly, I think you need to download them first.  Once you are finished, remember to print to a pdf rather than saving, so that the information that you input will not be lost.  If you notice any that I am missing (other than "Log Directions", which I did not include, because the directions are at the top of each log), please let me know and I'll add it.

    Thank you!
