What Does it Mean to be a Citizen of the USA, Part 2
My students need 30 of this book: Our United States Government that clearly explains how the federal, state, and local governments work.
My students do not possess an extensive background knowledge of Civics and Government. This workbook will provide a much needed complement to enhance instruction in these subjects.
My students are a diverse group of children belonging to an impoverished socioeconomic class.
We are, according to statewide standardized testing, the best Title I school in the county. They are alert and thirsty for knowledge, even after realizing that they are mostly marginalized by their ethnicity, socioeconomic background or class.
My students are mostly Hispanics (over 75%) and probably will be he first ones in their families that will become citizens through the process of naturalization. We started studying Civics, and now with the help of my first project: "What it means to be a citizen in the USA" funded by Donorschoose.org. This workbook will be the perfect complement for the students to be able to understand the complexities of the federal government, the ideals of separation of powers, 3 branches of the government and natural rights. The first project provides for the instruction and theories; this project (the workbook) provides the hands-on practice.
I wholeheartedly believe that adding this amazing workbook, Our United States Government, clearly explains to my students how the federal, state, and local governments work in an engaging manner.
My students will develop and fine-tune not only their social studies knowledge but also their reading comprehension and writing skills.
