Civics Anyone? Check Out the New iCitizen High School Curriculum

Do your high school plans include teaching your teens a civic course?  If so, take a peek at Generation Joshua’s new iCitizen course. It is a student friendly, well-written, and informative civics text that will not disappoint you!  Parents will find it comprehensive yet easy to use as it includes a syllabus, review questions, essay suggestions, and online tests and quizzes.  Each unit is loaded with helpful ideas for supplemental resources (movies, websites, articles, and more.)


iCitizen begins with a discussion of America’s foundations, covers the branches of government, provides an overview of state and local government, touches on American diplomacy, and educates your teen on the political system – all with interest and current examples.


We highly recommend iCitizen to give your teen a thorough, working knowledge of our system of government and his or her role as a US citizen.  The course is a wonderful lead-in to studying American government in depth.
