Thomas Jefferson once said, “The government you elect is the government you deserve.” This is a very troubling thought. How did we arrive at the government we have now? How was it originally built, and how has it evolved—or devolved? Follow this e-book to all things US government—the Constitution, Federalism, checks and balances, powers of the three branches, civil rights and everything else the government now has a hand in. Then ask yourself (and your students): Do we really deserve this?
Poptential’s Government is divided into weekly unit modules and daily lessons. Every module begins with an overview that provides your students with a clear purpose and relevance in their learning. At the end of every module, activities engage students in reflection and feedback exercises. This fosters a sense of agency and promotes active engagement in the learning process, helping students become more independent and self-directed learners. Pop culture media, along with engaging mini-lessons, accompany every module and support a deeper reading of the content. All of the content is set to school calendars and is compatible with popular classroom apps.
