Every four years in the United States, on the first Tuesday of November, we hold a federal election to determine not only who the next President of the United States will be, but also who our other elected officials will be. In this Active-Book we explore the topic of government in the US. Along with history and civics, the RDL Team shares great projects about statistics, mathematical calculations, social sciences, and other STEM topics to better understand the impact of US elections and the function of our government. 

 

 The goal of this Active-book is to understand the history and functions of the Election and Government system in the US, including the uniqueness of Tribal government.

 Throughout this Active-Book, you will get to know more details of different levels of governments and how they impact our daily lives. Learn more about Rep. John Lewis and Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and their lifelong fights for civil rights and gender equality.

 Officials of all kinds - from city mayor to the president - go through the election process. There are different types of election systems in the US, and you will get to experience how mathematical numbers can be used to change the results of a vote through a process called Gerrymandering.

 Once you're familiar with the US Government and Election system, it is then time to get involved. To be a responsible community member or citizen, getting the right information is the key. Practice your Media Literacy Skills to censor misinformation from various kinds of media. Finally, make your voice heard. There are a lot of different ways to advocate for what you believe -even with fashion apparel!
