Barron's Educational Series Painless American Government

Do your middle school students think civics is boring and confusing? Here's a book that will make them think again! It's filled with fun, interesting information about the three branches of government; important documents; civil liberties and rights; and elections. Potential politicians will learn how public policy is shaped---and how they can become involved in the process. 296 pages, softcover from Barron's.

This is a very good book to give a general overview about the many facets of our government, without becoming overbearing or dull. Contains many review questions to check student understanding of information presented. Better by far than run-of-the-mill history texts! A bit short on detail in a few cases, but easily supplemented. Good "backbone" book.

This is actually the 3rd item I've tried using to teach my 7th grader government and the only one he can tolerate! I enjoyed reading it to him and am excited to read more. Very easy to understand!

Excellent book. Using for my 11 and 13 year old sons. I got a book for each of them, so they could write in them. Lots of material in bite-sized pieces.

We are homeschooling our 8th grader and found this to be an easy, concise way to teach US government. There is review every few pages with questions that breaks up the text and reinforces the material. I recommend this book.
