Taking a groundbreaking approach to delivering government and civics curriculum, Savvas Learning Company today introduced two new, innovative social studies programs, Magruder’s American Government Interactive and Civics Interactive, that are developed to provide students with the most up-to-date content and current events.
Magruder’s American Government Interactive © 2023, the new edition of its premier high school program, is the first social studies curriculum in the country with continuously updated digital resources, complementing a foundational textbook. Civics Interactive © 2024, the newest and first all-digital civics curriculum in the marketplace, is designed to actively promote civic engagement for young adults in grades 6-12.
“The study of American government is not a static subject. What it takes to be an active, informed citizen is access to updated information that changes with each election cycle, policy change, and release of governmental data. This can make it time-consuming for teachers to constantly find not only the latest but also accurate resources for students,” said Bethlam Forsa, CEO of Savvas Learning Company. “With these two interactive programs, Savvas is leading the way in delivering continually fresh and current content, helping students develop skills for an engaged civic life and enabling them to study complex issues — including those impacting their lives today.”
