New for #Election2016: U.S. Government

We’ve added some great new presidential-election year elements to our program U.S. Government: An Interactive Approach.  Updates include explanations of developments in voting rights and restrictions and campaign finance.

For example, there’s a new map in Chapter 7: Campaigns and Voting called “Recent Changes in Voting Rights,” which discusses how voting rights and restrictions vary at the state level.

We’ve also updated the chapter overview with a new section on “Campaign Finance Since BRCA.” The update comes complete with additional study questions; chronology entries on Supreme Court cases such as McConnell, Citizens United, and McCutcheon; as well as glossary terms explaining concepts such as “dark money.”

In addition to the election-related updates, we’ve also added more information about government involvement in the economy:

  • Tutorial: Functions of the Federal Reserve
  • Case Study: U.S. Economic Policies: Costs and Benefits
  • Art: Command/Market Continuum
