A bundle of 4 reading assignments about local and state governments, their responsibilities, citizen participation, how they are funded and their role in student education. Includes a crossword puzzle based on terms from the readings. A great way to introduce the subject. The reading comes from a really great website, ushistory.org, under their free textbook tab. The information presented is theirs, I made up the questions. This can be done as a web quest assignment using the site. Perfect as a supplement, or as a textbook replacement! Also great as a Sub Assignment. MS Word for easy editing.
