This three part curriculum, consisting of a 75 lesson text and a volume of historic documents, is packed with information on our government's beginnings and development. You'll gain an adequate understanding of the purpose and functions of democracy by paying attention to the Constitution and biblical basis for government. You'll learn what the government does, why it is the way it is and why it does what it does. This is a one semester course if one unit is studied per week. Units contain an overview, lesson list, suggested activities, applicable document reading and more. 526 pages, indexed. Softcover. Quizzes and tests available
Part 1 covers some background material, showing the roots of our government in Biblical, Western, and American History. Part 2 deals with the U. S. Constitution and what it sets forth regarding Congress, the Executive, the bureaucracy, and the judiciary, along with the amendments. Part 3 discusses state and local governments, as well as taxing and spending. And Part 4 contains some issues facing American government today. Each of the fifteen units is intended to be studied for one week. What the student is to do each day and each week clearly outlined. Everything is presented from both a Biblical and a constitutionalist perspective.
The purpose is to educate, to inspire, and sometimes to warn the student concerning the governments of the United States, the individual states, and their local communities in order that he or she might be better equipped to remain prayerful, thoughtful, and involved with regard to our government. There is an accompanying book, We Hold These Truths, a collection of historic documents, essays, and speeches in American government, plus a quiz and test booklet and an answer key. We found it very useful. On the one hand, it is a rather intensive course that will require students to study hard, but on the other hand it is quite simple in that it does not demand a lot of teacher preparation.
