1 minute doses to review your civics class

Feeling that many Americans really do not know/remember their civics, I started listening to this podcast so I would not be one of them. I tried to get my kids to listen, but one may need to have had a high school level civics class in order to grasp these tidbits in a bigger picture. Without the bigger picture, the tidbits remain factoids that are not necessarily helpful or leading to understanding.

So, for anybody with at least a high school civics class under their belt, these 1 minute podcasts are a great review. As I said, most Americans don't remember their civics, as illustrated by statements made in the media and public by politicians, media pundits, in churches, in public throughout the country. I highly recommend this podcast, whether you are really interested or not. You will be a better U.S. citizen because of it.

Great Podcast

This is such a wonderful service that teaches the history of the present so that we know why things are the way they are. It is easy to take some of the rights and privileges for granted when we don't know how we got here but 60-seconds civics help correct that. This is a very NECESSARY podcast. Thank you Center for Civic Education and Mark Gage for doing this well.
