The revised and updated fourth print edition of We the People: The Citizen & the Constitution features new text, images, exercises, and Supreme Court cases to ensure that the next generation of Americans has the intellectual tools they need to become informed and engaged citizens. We the People gives high school students a firm understanding of government and citizenship. Students explore the history and principles of constitutional democracy through critical-thinking exercises, cooperative-learning and participation in a simulated congressional hearing. The We the People student textbook contains six units and 39 lessons. The updated teacher's guide contains a step-by-step walkthrough of the student book as well as reproducible handouts and the end-of-course assessment.
