How America Works gives teens a fun, behind-the-scenes look at how the U.S. government works, why they should care and how they can get involved. But this isn't just any old civics primer. From the editors of Junior Scholastic and the New York Times Upfront, this engaging guide makes civics exciting and easy to understand for students in grades 6–10. Organized in 11 non-sequential and self-contained units (with even more learning extensions online.), educators can keep lessons fresh with the content they need–whenever they need it.
