All about Our Government
Does the prospect of a semester of studying government set your child's feet to dancing? Mine neither. But in many states a semester is required for graduation, and as painful as it may seem, a complete understanding of government will have greater impact on your students than a comparable understanding of calculus.

As Painless as it Gets
Exploring Government from the Notgrass Company is as painless as it gets. Bite-sized lessons cover federal, state, and local government, as well as contemporary issues in government. Special emphasis is placed on the Biblical basis for government and on the U.S. Constitution.

Self-Study Course for Teens
Busy moms will be glad to know that Exploring Government is designed as a self-study course for teens with seventy-five engaging lessons divided into fifteen units of five lessons each. Each lesson has a student-friendly layout, with options included for a variety of interesting, relevant activities in every unit.

Optional Half-Credit in English
Exploring Government can be used to achieve a half-credit in English as well, if your child uses the recommended literature books (we suggest checking them out from the library) and the literary analysis provided in the optional Student Review Pack, plus chooses to do essay writing as their project. If your child is college bound and without other writing activities, doing these assignments may be valuable in crystallizing on paper his or her opinions and possible real-life applications. Better yet, use these suggested essay questions as a springboard for discussions around the dinner table or with your community group.

A Better Grasp of U.S. Government
The Exploring Government curriculum package includes two books: the Exploring Government textbook with material clearly outlined as to the student's daily and weekly assignments, and We Hold These Truths, a collection of historic documents, essays, and speeches in American government. Both books are illustrated with a plethora of full-color photos, drawings, and maps. In addition, an optional Student Review Pack is available to provide literary analysis for the optional English component, review questions for each lesson, weekly quizzes, three exams, and an answer key. If you need accountability, grab one of these. The Exploring Government curriculum package is appropriate for any high schooler or anyone else who desires a better grasp of U.S. government.

    Good Purchase January 25, 2014
    Reviewer: Carol P.  
    My Daughter loves US History, so she is reading this as supplemental material to the History program we are currently using. She finds it interesting, and I am glad I purchased it.
