Funny, enjoyable
I haven't used it yet, but I plan to. It's fun and engaging. The style is broken up into smaller chunks, so it's not too overwhelming. Short quiz sections are scattered liberally throughout. Also included are projects and "things to think about" that encourage students to do their own thinking and expand their learning beyond the book.

Used for MS Co-Op gov't class.
At the time, a simple, non-textbook, middle school resource was not easy to find. This was the next best thing. It is, however, written with a bit of a liberal bias. For example, their definition for the right to bear arms/ Second Amendment ( p 46)... is debatable. That being said, it is a great read. We applied a Christian perspective to everything we read with various other resources. It is chock-full of information and terms... There is still more in this than we can effectively cover in our Co-Op class!

Simple but informative
I like reading this book and actually look forward to it. It has easily understood explanations for government terms. I would recommend this to others.

We will be covering civics in a short program this fall and I want to make sure that we cover enough material for it to be a full class.

We need a civics course for upper elementary that is straight forward and covers the basics.

It seems like a good basic intro to American Government. Will use other online materials to supplement. Nice price, too!

My oldest is in 9th grade and needs a civics/government credit for his high school transcript. This curriculum gets good reviews and is inexpensive.

I read reviews about the "Painless" books and felt like this could be something that could help fulfill our Civics requirements by giving us a base to work from and expand.
Christy H on Jun 27, 2016
I chose this because it looked like it would cover the basics of government for my son who is not interested in government.
