Foundational Principles of Good Government is probably the most unique government course I have ever seen. It teaches much more than just what the founders of our country did; it teaches the history behind it. This is most certainly not your typical politically correct version of American government. Some of the unit titles are "Types of Government," "Duties and Responsibilities of Governments," "Duties and Responsibilities of Citizens," "What the Federal and State Governments Are Prohibited and Why," and much more. There are nine units in all. This book will teach you things about government that you never knew before.

There are discussion questions throughout each unit, and the book is also filled with many direct quotes from the Founders. It also includes many "strange but true" facts and laws, which was actually my daughter's favorite part of the book. I feel that this is an invaluable course for every high schooler, or even for an adult. It is more than worth its $12 purchase price.
