Main Description
Increase student performance, student engagement, and critical analysis skills with We the People. This program is available with GinA, an educational game in which students learn American Government by doing, as well as McGraw-Hill’s LearnSmart, an adaptive questioning tool proven to increase content comprehension and improve student results. Try our Politics in Practice which uses real-life scenarios to develop students’ critical thinking skills through activities and a written argument.

Unique to this program is a balanced, well-respected author who makes complex topics easy. Tom Patterson is a recognized voice in media who teaches at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. We the People’s strong authorship and market-leading digital products make this an ideal solution to course goals.
