Who's Your Candidate? Choosing Government Leaders

Learning about the legislative process is a big part of the social studies curriculum, from the history of the presidency to the amazing paths of Supreme Court justices. While this series features the historical framework of important positions in government and how one achieves them, it also shows readers how they can start becoming involved in their communities and schools right now to prepare for a possible future as a government leader. Sidebars throughout each book encourage working with volunteer organizations, running for positions in student government, and more. Full-color photographs highlight recent examples of those running for office as well as young people making a difference in the world around them—and the laws that govern it. • Promotes citizenship and addresses civics requirements • Gives readers contexts in which to relate the legislative process to their own lives • Discusses the many factors that play into political candidacy including education, prior experience, and campaigning
