Principles of Democracy

About Our Class

My name is Mr. Soden, and this is my third year at Metropolitan High School and my thirteenth year with LAUSD.  The goal for our Principles of American Democracy and Economics classes is for you to become a more informed and responsible participant in our government and the economy.  We are all part of the economy and the government affects all of our lives.  Each of us can truly change the world for the better if we are informed and active citizens.  These classes will demand critical thinking and participation in serious discussions about current events.  Students will also need to be independently motivated and able to write analytical essays.
