Separation of Powers
When the Founding Fathers forged the government for the newly independent United States of America, they were careful not to give too much power to any one person or group. The separation of power between the three branches of government is one of the hallmarks of American democracy. Your readers will examine the concept of the separation of power and how it applies to the government of the United States. Text is presented in accessible chunks and supported by primary sources, charts, and graphic organizers. Designed for struggling teen readers, this book will help them understand key concepts in the U.S. government and history curriculum.
