    The founding fathers considered Congress to be the most important of the three branches, and yet Americans are frequently disillusioned with this branch and know little of how it functions. This book uses educational, hands-on activities to help students understand how congress works and why government is important. The focus is on stories, personalities and major milestones in congressional history. The 9 chapters hone in on themes that have historically challenged congress, including the abolition of slavery, voting rights, investigating government misconduct, and private institutions. Students will complete such varied activities as designing money, building a capitol dome, studying their own congressional district, writing a letter to their congressman, drafting a petition, and tracking a bill through congress. Includes an afterword, notes, websites for further research, a glossary, bibliography and index. Great for your political science studies! 11” x 8 ½”, 128 pp, sc. ~ Ruth
