Once again, I couldn't find exactly what I needed, so I made my own.
Based on the New York State SS Framework for Participation in Government and Civics, I organized a list of words and phrases that seem essential for the course. This vocabulary list is not in alphabetical order, but in order of appearance based on units of instruction. A brief description / definition is included for each essential word or phrase. For some, a web link has been embedded within the vocabulary word or definition for further explanation or additional information.
I hope this product saves you time and is helpful in understanding the essential vocabulary for a course in US Government.
