governance level 1

In the first level of the Governance module readers will learn about the laws of the United States of America, the Constitution, its Amendments and the Bill of Rights. These federal laws lay the foundation for the core values of the United States as a country and also shape what daily life is like in the US at the federal, state and city level.

The stories in level 1 talk about how citizens in the US have advocated to shape and change the laws in order to defend their rights at the State and Federal level.  By the end of this level readers will have a better understanding of the different branches of government and how these parts work together to develop and implement laws.
