Over 24 years of teaching, I've seen a lot of texts for civics, and to me, yours are clearly the best.

—Michele Galla, Alaska Learning Network 

The new ebook is incredible. It demonstrates the importance of history and civics in our everyday lives. It is a text that is both sophisticated and basic, a teaching tool that can be used by honor students and students with reading disabilities.

—Clara L. Slifkin

The Center for Civic Education's new We the People enhanced ebook is a superb teaching tool for those educators using this technology. This ebook will certainly enhance the student's reading experience and it will engage them as they encounter the content.

—Dick Kean, Wyoming Project Citizen Coordinator

In my opinion, the Center has successfully transformed its flagship into a starship that should gain new users, retain loyal users, and provide all with an enhanced alternative to print that is durable, affordable, and easy to access and store. I signed in on my first try—a unique experience for me online. I navigated the book with ease. I was impressed with the book's appearance in terms of layout and design. The lady in red is a welcoming guide without being a distraction. The content remains strong; the pedagogy solid.

—Stephen Schechter, Professor of Political Science and History, Russell Sage College

Yet another quality civic education resource from the Center for Civic Education, one of our nation's premiere civic education organizations. I have used all three levels of their texts with my 5th grade students and found them to be an invaluable tool that's both engaging and well-written.
