For Which We Stand

It's important for everyone to understand our government: where it came from, how it works, and how we can bring about change.

This entertaining guide answers questions like: What is the Constitution? What are the branches of the government? What is the Electoral College? What are the political parties? What are the different responsibilities of the city, state, and federal governments?

Plus, students will discover the complete backstory on some of our government's most important moments, like why we wrote the Declaration of Independence, and how people since then have worked with -- and protested against -- the government to improve the lives of all Americans.

Each spread features a mix of black-and-white and full-color art, including infographics, charts, maps, political caricatures, and other engaging visual elements that will be fun and easy for kids to understand.

176 pages, softcover. Ages 8-12.

Constitutional Literacy from Apologia

Constitutional Literacy Workbook / Constitutional Literacy DVD Series

The Constitution is the document that's guided the development of the United States of America from its inception. It was formed by the Founding Fathers by the authority of the people, and it was expected that "We the People" would be vigilant to protect and defend its contents and abide by its restrictions on power.

Designed to accompany the Constitutional Literacy DVD Series, the workbook will help you turn the 25-part DVD series into a full high-school level course.
