America is dealing with a pandemic that has changed our lives, our economy, and our teaching. At the same time, the nation’s teens are making their voices heard on a range of issues of particular interest to them, from climate change to immigration, race, and gender. But many don’t have a full understanding of how to move beyond speaking out to taking part in the political process.

That’s why Social Studies teachers need a current, super-engaging, curriculum-connected and standards-based civics resource like How America Works.

How America Works makes teaching civics easy because it’s appealing to students. It makes even complex civics topics easy to understand with:

·      Riveting stories relevant to today’s teens that you won’t find in any textbook.

·      Multiple entry points to engage readers at all levels.

·      Short texts, including 5-Minute Guides to each of the three branches of government.

·      Political cartoons with analysis questions.

·      Debates that spark discussion and critical thinking.

·      Graphic explanations of everything active citizens of any age need to know.

·      Digital resources including discussion topics, activities, and key concepts.

·      Short videos to introduce key concepts and provide historical context.

How America Works is organized in 10 units: from the Constitution and the Bill of Rights—and how they apply to life in 2020—to current issues such as civil rights, immigration, and media literacy.

How America Works can be used as a text or as a supplement: The 10 units can be used in any order and at any time—when a topic is in the headlines, or when you need to grab your students’ attention for a topic in your curriculum.
