Exploring Government is a one-semester high school course that provides a half-year credit in government. Lessons cover Federal, state, and local government and also contemporary issues in government. Special emphasis is placed on the Biblical basis for government and on the U.S. Constitution. Each of the fifteen units is intended to be studied for one week.
What the student is to do each day and each week is clearly outlined. The Unit Introduction page gives a brief overview of the unit, the lessons in that unit, and a suggestion for an activity that is relevant to that unit. Most of these activities are writing ideas, but some take a different form. The activities are designed to help the student think about and interact with the ideas that he or she is studying. Completing one daily lesson should take 30-60 minutes.
Our purpose in Exploring Government is to educate, to inspire, and sometimes to warn you concerning the governments of the United States, the individual states, and our local communities. As we understand the background, basis, and operation of American government on all levels, we are better equipped to remain prayerful, thoughtful, and involved with regard to government.
