Americans Governing ($25 for students) is a ready-to-use ancillary of online homework assignments exploring themes commonly taught in Political Science courses. The ancillary is designed to function as a stand-alone resource or to work in tandem with your course’s text and syllabus. We find the best online resources—award-winning documentaries, informative news reports, and other high-quality content—and integrate them directly into our assignments to engage students.

The Americans Governing ancillary includes:
- Primary documents such as the Federalist Papers, the Declaration of Independence, and the Constitution
- Current news coverage, infographics, and compelling images from leading media outlets
- Award-winning documentaries such as Street Fight, The War Room, and The Weather Underground

Inside the ancillary, the content is only half of the story. Our learning environment allows instructors to assign web based content and review valuable data regarding student learning. Our learning analytics allow instructors to know where students are succeeding and where they find the material too challenging.
Every assignment is paired with a set of student learning assessments that ensure that students are paying attention, gathering the right data, and on the right track.
We have developed off-the-shelf collections formatted to pair our assignments with leading Political Science textbooks. If we don’t have the collection you’re looking for, we can modify our chapters and content to fit yours.
