Overview

Politics is relevant and participation matters—now more than ever.


With fresh insight from new coauthor Andrea Campbell,We the People, Twelfth High School Edition, once again sets the standard for showing students how government impacts their lives and why it matters who participates. Campbell relates true, personal stories of how government affects ordinary citizens. This focus is reinforced by the book’s signature “Who Are Americans?” and “Who Participates?” features which motivate critical thinking about how Americans experience and shape politics. Learning goals ensure that students maintain consistent focus on core concepts in the text, in its companion InQuizitive learning tool, and in supporting critical-thinking exercises.
