Focusing on the current and historical conflicts and controversies that define America as a nation, GOVT 2 is a streamlined and extremely current text for the American Government course. Its motivating debate theme and appealing magazine-like format speak directly to today's student. A new chapter feature--"Our Government's Response to the Economic Crisis"--helps explain the current economic downturn and the ensuing economic policies.
As part of the 4LTR Press, GOVT 2 was created through a "student-tested, faculty-approved" review process. It is an accessible, affordable approach to the course that accommodates the diverse lifestyles of today's learners through its full suite of learning tools. These tools--correlated to the text chapter-by-chapter--include chapter-in-review cards, video, simulations, podcasts, and quizzes that allow students to learn and study wherever they are and whenever they have time.
"I LOVE GOVT. I really do think that it combines the attractiveness for students . . . with better content and presentation. . . . The thing I like about the features of GOVT is that they seem to be more specifically politically literate--meaning you learn how to learn, so being an engaged citizen includes learning how to find the information. I like that a lot! . . . The GOVT ancillary package looks GREAT!"- Leah A. Murray, Weber State University
