    We haven't actually used this yet. I ordered it for next school year because my daughter needs at least a half-year credit for Civics. I purchased this along with "Understanding the Electoral College" which will meet the requirements for Civics. The booklets are user friendly and can be used along with a History or Constitution course or stand alone. They seem very concise with reading assignments, questions to answer and projects to complete. It also gives some freedom of choice as to what outside reading you do - so that you can pick what will fit your child's interest, age, etc. Overall, I'm impressed with what I've seen as I have read through the booklets. You can't beat the price! I look forward to using this with my ninth grader during an election year!

    Great information for the money! I wanted a short, concise and an easy to understand format for my 8th grader. This is something he'll be able to remember and apply to his government class in highschool! This is it! Thank you!

Q: Laura Petrisin's Government 101 I am teaching this course in our co-op and would like to purchase 13 Student guides "A Beginner's Guide to the Federal Government," but only need 1 Teacher Guide. Is this possible?

A:

Sorry, it is not possible to purchase the student guide as a separate component, you would need to purchase a separate kit for each student.

Q: What is the grade level of this Government 101 Packet? I would like to know if this is appropriate for a high school level class.

A:

This is recommended for grades 5 and up.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Laurie Petrisin
Located in: Trumansburg, NY
Submitted: May 14, 2003

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I am married with two children and our family lives in the Finger Lakes region of upstate, New York. I have a degree in education with an emphasis on curriculum/instruction. The subjects I enjoy digging into and writing about are government, political science, history and classical literature. I have homeschooled my children from the beginning and have a fairly wide experience with different curricula. My son, Ben, is now a senior and has just accepted an appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy. My daughter, Grace, is a sophmore. She has an interest in business and a passion for horses. I also have a passion for music and art. I recorded a cd of original music in a contemporary Christian genre called "Healing In His Wings." I did the cover art. I paint in watercolor and I am working on developing a line of cards that will depict children engaged in play and various learning situations.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I wanted to give people a basic understanding of how the U.S. federal government is set up and how it functions. Most people forget what they learned about it in high school and don't have the time or inclination to refresh their memory by pouring over thick texts. So, I poured over the texts, extracted the essential information, and presented the nuts and bolts of American government in a simple, concise guide. If sales are any indication, then "Government 101" has turned out to be what people are looking for.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I hope folks will gain an understanding of our government and that this will help equip them with the knowledge and confidence to become part of the political process.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  Gary Demar - "God and Government"; Douglas Southall Freeman - "Lee"; Henderson - "Stonewall Jackson"; Verna M. Hall - "The Christian History Of The Constitution Of The United States Of America."

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  Homeschoolers are raising tomorrow's leaders! It is worth the time, effort, and sacrifces.
