Influence students to act by exploring American politics through the Constitution
Revel™ Government by the People provides a constitutional anchor for critical thinking and helps turn students into citizens who are informed and involved in the decisions and processes of our constitutional democracy. Throughout, authors David Magleby, Paul Light, and Christine Nemacheck show students the stake they have in our government, and help them see the ways they can make a difference. The text emphasizes the importance of learning the structure of American government and politics, and that when students act on that knowledge, through participation, they can have an impact on the future of their community, their state, the nation, and the world. The 2018 Elections and Updates Edition offers new narrative coverage of the major issues from today’s headlines including the 2018 midterm elections, recent policy under the Trump administration, and the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
Revel is Pearson’s newest way of delivering our respected content. Fully digital and highly engaging, Revel replaces the textbook and gives students everything they need for the course. Informed by extensive research on how people read, think, and learn, Revel is an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience — for less than the cost of a traditional textbook.
