Local history teacher offers adult civics refresher course at Penn State DuBois


DuBois, PA – Quick… here’s a pop quiz.

What are the three branches of the government, and what do they even do? What’s the difference between a primary election and a general election? Why do we need both the House of Representatives and the Senate?

If it all seems a little fuzzy, here’s your chance to get a refresher.

Bob Anderson, a history teacher at the DuBois Area Middle School, is teaching a civics refresher course for adults at Penn State DuBois, starting Jan. 15.

It will last for the next six Wednesdays in the evenings (5:30-7:30).

The cost is $45.

Learn how the government and elections work, plus know your rights and responsibilities as an American citizen.
