School Library Connection - A Citizen's Guide
It’s imperative to the well-being of the nation that teachers and educators introduce good citizenship skills to young people at an early age. This series has done an outstanding job at introducing middle grade students to all phases of government and citizenship. All titles feature a good balance of text combined with color photographs. A “Think about It” section encourages readers to consider aspects of the topic further. The titles in the series discuss such topics as the rights of citizens, the evolution of democracy, candidates and the election process, the judicial system, how government uses money to provide services, and the importance of the voting process. This title is ideal for middle school libraries and social studies classrooms. Additional Resources. Glossary.
