By tracing American democracy back to the British Magna Carta and even earlier Greek civilization, this text gives a rich history as to how the United States government was formed and how it continues to affect the lives of its citizens. This text is focused on the formation of the United States government, branches of the federal government, state and local governments, and how citizens and government work together in our democracy. Each lesson includes introductory questions, a running vocabulary with definitions, pictures, and comprehensive review. End-of-chapter questions include writing activities, vocabulary exercises, critical thinking questions, and "Skill Builders." My favorite parts are the critical thinking activities and Skill Builders included at the end of each lesson. These activities ask students to apply the information they have learned or analyze a political cartoon or graph. The teacher's guide includes key concepts and discussion questions for each chapter, suggested pre-reading activities, and key vocabulary. Answers and explanations to student book exercises, extension activities, unit tests, and, graphic organizers are also provided in the teacher's guide. An easy-to-use introduction to our government, this is a great program for middle-school students that could be incorporated into a U.S. history program, or used as an elective. ~ Steve

This looked like a good civics program for my 5th grader. Not too difficult but not too easy and something that she can work on independently.

If you want a book with semi-easy content easy to parrot answers and quick short-answer tests this book may work for you If you are a TEA Party member or Constitutionalist don't bother I expected this book would have the typical philosophical errors political biases and liberal heroes (like many poorly written American history books) I thought I could just correct them as we read Even though my son is only in 4th grade our family goes to 3 TEA Parties a year listens to a little bit of talk radio each day and discusses politics regularly We just started chapter 5 yesterday and I'm ready to pitch the book It teaches the watered-down secular version of American history that too many of us learned in school That's not good enough for my children and the next generation because I believe the tyranny the founding fathers fought and labored against can return in any generation
