America, the Owner's Manual: Making Government Work For Youby Bob Graham, Chris Hand
Pub. Date: 04/01/2009
Publisher: Congressional Quarterly, Inc.
Senator Bob Grahambelieves that students should expand on their classroom learning about the political system: he spurs them to hit the court and actually play the game. If students work on an issue they care about, politics will become a meaningful and positive experience. This short, how-to guide takes students out of theoretical discussions of policy and into a world where they can affect change. Graham's goal is to have students identify a problem, and then walk them through each step from researching the issue, to getting others involved, to engaging the media. Each chapter starts with a real case, showing citizens tackling a step in the process, and ends with a summary checklist and a series of questions that help students put Graham's game plan in action. By offering students concrete guidance, an array of resources, and advice for troubleshooting and overcoming barriers, this compact user's guide gets students way beyond textbook learning.
