Summary

Make American Government matter while increasing student performance, student engagement, and critical analysis skills with Government Matters, 1e, now available with GinA, an educational game in which students learn American Government by doing, as well as McGraw-Hill’s LearnSmart, an adaptive questioning tool proven to increase content comprehension and improve student results. Try our Politics in Practice which uses real-life scenarios to develop students’ critical thinking skills through activities and a written argument.

Unique to Government Matters, the narrative tells the story of the making and developing of our distinctly American Democracy. It not only inspires students to ask “Why are we the way we are?” but also gives them the knowledge and context they need to answer for themselves, “Why does it matter?” Government Matters’ unique approach to the material and market-leading digital tools make this an ideal solution to course goals.
