Publisher Description:

Civics is the study of how government works, but this course is so much more than that. To understand how government ought to work, you first have to know the framework and principles of the people who designed and structured it. Then, you must also be aware of your responsibilities as a citizen within it.

From a Biblical worldview, this civics course goes back to explore the mindset of the Founding Fathers using historic sources to help students understand the purpose and powers of the Constitution. Students will use the Principle Approach known as the Four R’s: Research (using the Bible, Webster’s 1828 Dictionary, and other primary sources to define terms), Reason (using questions to identify truth), Relate (connecting this truth to history or a current event), and Record (writing or applying the knowledge). Most chapters consist of watching a video lecture, reading notes and sources, and completing worksheets (fill-in-the-blank, short-essay, and multiple-choice questions) and quizzes. Lessons should take about 30-45 minutes a day, four to five days a week. The student textbook consists of all the reading material, supplemental video options, and instructions for watching the videos and completing worksheets and quizzes. The teacher guide includes a suggested daily schedule, worksheets, quizzes, and answers. There are also suggestions on how to extend this course over a full year. There are 15 video lectures (each about 23 minutes in length). As students learn about the important checks and balances and the proper role and limits of civil government in the United States, they will learn how to think through meaningful questions using Biblical principles. This course will certainly give them a better understanding of our Constitution and their rights and responsibilities as citizens.

I purchased the set for my 11th grader. With the events that are currently taking place in our country, I feel it's very important for students to understand the Constitution as well as the intended purpose and function of our government. This claims to do both in one curriculum. I like that it is written from a Biblical perspective and that it can be expanded to fit a full year if desired.

can students just watch the videos and not do the workbook and still follow along? I'm Not wanting to use this as a full curriculum, just as a base knowledge for my 8th grader.

BEST ANSWER: Technically yes, you can just watch the videos, but the textbook provides easy reference details like names, dates, quotes, Bible Verses, and supporting documents as they are presented in the videos. The textbook chapters are complete outlines of all the material in the videos, with a chapter for each video lesson. The chapters are easy to access detailed outlines, quotes, timelines charts, tables and references rather than typical paragraph type material. My students have said they really like the way it is presented since it is so easy to access and find the information. The textbook does not have any questions for students to answer. The teacher's guide has reproducible worksheets for each chapter that are mostly fill in the blank and follow the chapter and video material closely and in order so they are easy to complete. The teacher's guide also has a multiple choice quiz for each chapter and answer keys for the worksheets and quizzes.. My students said the worksheets really helped them remember the material.
