Painless American Government (CLICK HERE TO VIEW)
If your student expects to hate any book on government, they’re in for a pleasant surprise! This book explains the functions of the United States government by using down-to-earth examples, adding a touch of humor, and demonstrating that exercising a citizen’s rights can be a very satisfying experience. This book is designed for high school students, helping them excel in a subject they might expect to be either hopelessly boring or excruciatingly difficult. The authors of the series are all experienced teachers, adept at winning the hearts and minds of adolescents, and skillful in adding a light, humorous touch to even the heaviest and grimmest topics. The book opens with a general description of government and a comparison of democracy as practiced by the founding fathers and how it operates in today’s America. The author goes on to discuss the Constitution as our basis of government, civil liberties and civil rights, the legislative, executive, and judicial branches of the federal government, elections and political parties, how public policy is created and shaped, and how each citizen can become involved in the process of self-government. The book includes quizzes with answer keys. An excellent resource.
