The Course Essentials video modules offer students a new way to engage with and understand the government that affects their daily lives.

ABC-CLIO Solutions, an award-winning digital curriculum resource, adds more than 250 new Course Essentials video learning modules to its American Government database. These new resources join the more than 300 video modules already available.

Formulated with collaboration from leading educators, the modules are designed to make complex concepts easier to understand, benefiting all learners. The American Government modules will debut at the American Library Association (ALA) Annual Conference and Exhibition in San Francisco June 25–30, and be available for the 2015-16 school year.

“The American government is in the national spotlight every day, so it’s important for students to have a complete understanding for how it works,” said Becky Snyder, ABC-CLIO President. “ABC-CLIO’s Course Essentials video learning modules provide interactive introductions and summaries on government topics presented in a format that is easy for students to understand and retain.”

The American Government database explores all three branches of government, how the government was founded, domestic and foreign policy, political and economic systems and state and local government. ABC-CLIO is one of the first publishers in the education industry to create comprehensive video modules with direct instruction from key faculty. The modules are professionally produced and include supplemental resources to expand students’ understanding of social studies, science and English language arts topics.

“The Course Essentials video modules offer students a new way to engage with and understand the government that affects their daily lives,” said Lex Anne Seifert, Middle School Language Arts Teacher at The Winston School. “With informed insights about the American government garnered through these multimedia assets, students can take that knowledge and apply it across the curriculum.”
