Product Description
Teaching the fundamental principles and founding documents of the American government can be difficult! The content is abstract and conceptual; but this unit gives your students a lot of practice with that content. It moves the students from recognizing and defining the fundamental principles of American government to applying them to the founding documents!

The unit is an abridged version of the unit I used during my graduate school thesis. There are 4 days of instruction and a test for assessment. 130 students across all of my classes showed enormous growth between the pre- and post-assessment I used when teaching this unit!

The content included in the Mini-Unit:
Fundamental Principles of U.S. Government Lesson Plan
- Hook Materials
