about this item

"The fifth edition of American Democracy Now continues our tradition. Relying on data garnered from thousands of students who have used our Connect and LearnSmart platforms, we have revised our program to ensure greater clarity in areas that have proven complex for past student readers. We have continued to integrate an examination of the increasing role that technology is playing in politics. And we have continued our quest to create a student-centered program that increases students' sense of politicalefficacy by exciting them about the political conversations of the day and by integrating a critical thinking framework that not only explains the past and present of politics, but also asks them to think critically about the future: What's next for their democracy? In American Democracy Now, fourth edition, students learn how the fundamental principles of American democracy inform their understanding of the politics and policies of today, so that they can think about the policies they would like to see take shape tomorrow. In short, they learn to inquire: How does then and now shape what's going to happen next? This ``Then, Now, Next'' approach to critical thinking serves as the basis for student participation"--
