Instructional Material Reviews
While I have not reviewed any other 7th Grades Civics books on the market I can honestly say I have serious reservations and cannot recommend this book to be used in our school district. The chapters I have had time to review contain omission of facts, half-truths, factual errors, bias and slants and call into question compliance with the Florida Statutes 1003.42.
This series is designed as a consumable. This means that students will be able to write in them, cut out vocabulary foldables and take home the text for homework. For this reason choosing these texts is expensive and involves reordering books every academic year. If administrators do not want to have the books used as consumables it would be better to find another text suitable to that plan.
