Government: A Course in Civic Literacy--Easy or Overwhelming?
Miller, Douglas E.
Social Studies Review, v35 n3 p22-27 Spr-Sum 1996
Describes a high school civics course constructed almost solely around a close reading of the Declaration of Independence, United States Constitution, and Gettysburg Address. Maintains that understanding these documents establishes the minimum essentials of civic literacy and frees classes from the burden of irrelevant and unreadable textbooks. (MJP)
