Declaration Statesmanship: A Course in American Government
Drs. Richard Ferrier and Andrew Seeley
 
This course is unique. There is no other course like it available to the American high school student. It unites history, philosophy, and what we call 'civics' in a dynamic blend of narrative and argument. As much as possible it deploys original sources and fundamental texts, and the writing of the authors endeavors to match, as their capacities allowed, the thoughtfulness and elegance of the authors who inspired us.
 
Declaration Statesmanship has been designed as a one semester (14 week) course in American Government or Civics for eleventh or twelfth grade students. The authors have tried throughout the course to direct the students' attention to the writings and documents of the time, many of which are quoted at length in the textbook, while others are contained in the accompanying Book of Readings.

The course presumes that the student has already completed a course in American history.

260-page illustrated Student Text. The 114-page Teacher's Manual includes lesson plans, detailed teacher strategies, answers to review questions, comments on the text, and reproducible quizzes and tests. The 292-page compilation, Book of Readings, saves the purchase of additional books. Set of three books.
Expanded 2014 edition;

“I'm 16 years old and I love this course!!! I began Declaration Statesmanship expecting to find a dry, factual book on the American government system. But by the time I'd completed the first chapter I realized that this program would not only give me facts about how our government runs, but show me the principles and great truths that America was founded on. What really made this course "come alive" for me was that it showed me how everything going on in America one hundred years ago can be directly applied to America today. The principles in the Declaration of Independence are the same in every situation and time period. I never knew there was so much to learn about the principles upholding our country!”
