Participate in your American government

 

Living Democracy, 2012 Election Edition uniquely asks students to participate in their learning and their government.  Activities and features promote application of concepts outside of the classroom. This text shows students how government impacts their daily lives and how they can make a difference in that government.  Living Democracy fulfills a need felt in every American government classroom–to engage students, to develop their understanding of government, and to make them active political participants.

 

This text features full integration with the New MyPoliSciLab.  MyPoliSciLab includes a wide array of resources to encourage students to look at American politics like a political scientist and analyze current political issues.  Political Explorer lets students play the role of a political scientist by investigating issues through interactive data.  Core Concept videos discuss the big ideas in each chapter and apply them to key political issues. Simulations allow students to experience how political leaders make decisions.
