"The United States Constitution"
Wednesday, February 11, 2009
I used this set with my Resource US Government class. The information in the text book we used did not go in depth into the Constitution. PCI's The United States Constitution set was great. I love the review handouts and the tests really show how much the students learn.

"UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION student text"
Tuesday, June 24, 2008
I have used this text with my ESL Government students because it explains the content of the regular curriculum in plain, simple language and short, concise chapters. They learn the same concepts along side the regular ed students but in an easy to read text. This text benefits my low students as well. The charts, time line, and visuals illustrate these complex historical and government concepts and make them easier to comprehend and grasp. This text beautifully paraphrases one of the most difficult to read documents of American history in simple, easy, and clear statements so ESL and struggling readers can understand the points of the Constitution. Any student would benefit from using this text to introduce, review, or reiterate the concepts covered by the Constitution and the basic structure of American government and the history of democracy.
