As part of that effort, I’ve written a high school and above course on good government. It’s called Foundational Principles of Good Government. The course contains individual units on government philosophy, our American form of government, the duties and responsibilities of citizens, the duties and responsibilities of the government, the branches of government, the Constitution, what the government is prohibited, capitalism, and warnings of the founders. This is the real version of government from the point of view of the Founders, not the politically correct watered down version you’ll find in American social studies books. Direct quotes from the Founders are sprinkled over every page so you can read for yourself what they said about these topics. Discussion questions are included along with a list of more great government books to study.
You can see what the reviewers at The Old Schoolhouse Magazine have to say about it here.
