Detailed Book Description

From the American Revolution to the French Revolution, from the Civil Rights era in the United States to Arab Spring in the Middle East, the ongoing battle for freedom and democracy is a profound and fascinating study of the power of human will to change the world. And the story of civic unrest doesn't end with a promise. The revolution doesn't simply stop when protesters go home. Rebuilding, reorganizing, writing a constitution, and establishing new governments are all major milestones on the pathway to democracy.

Civic Unrest: Investigate the Struggle for Social Change examines both the history behind civic unrest and the methods people use to fight for basic human rights, such as freedom of speech and the right to vote. Civic Unrest also offers young readers the opportunity to learn about democracy and the structure of the U.S. government, the text and meaning of the U.S. Constitution, and how these elements were decided upon by the Founding Fathers. Student-driven activities, including interpreting data and debating issues, enrich learning and encourage immersion in the complex yet hopeful subject of civic unrest.
