This complete, easy-to-use program was designed for middle and high
school students who need help learning the basic concepts taught in
American government classes. Written by PCI's Kristina Swann, the
United States Government Student Text is an abbreviated version of a
traditional textbook. The low reading level; sophisticated page
layout; and up-to-date, age-appropriate visuals make the Student
Text and accompanying activities appealing to struggling readers.
This standards-based program is appropriate for on-level students,
students with learning differences, and students and adults reading
below grade level.
The full-color, 64-page Student Text features seven easy-to-read
chapters. The consumable text covers types of government, history of
the U.S. government, political parties, the House of Representatives
and the Senate, the President and Vice President, the cabinet,
independent government agencies, the federal court system, and the
Supreme Court. Text also covers state and local government, and
more. Includes maps, charts, photos, and a glossary.
The 170-page, reproducible Teacher's Binder includes 111 student
worksheets that reinforce each section of the Student Text. Includes
true/false, multiple-choice, matching, fill-in-the-blank, crossword
puzzle, short answer, and word search activities. Teacher's Binder
also includes a quiz for each chapter, a final review, a final test,
and complete answer keys.
