The Foundation of Freedom
Written for middle and high school students, the 2017 “America’s Legacy” book focuses on the text and history of the United States’ Founding Documents, including the Constitution, Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence. Additional sections cover the elements of citizenship (how to be a good American citizen); the three branches of government and separation of powers; and excerpts from great American speeches. Interesting “Freedom Facts” and SGAP infographics are included throughout the book.
SGAP is a nationwide program received by students in all 50 states, with about one million students having participated since it was begun in 1992. Materials are factual, nonpartisan, non-political and content appropriate for teenagers. Program costs are supported by the generosity of corporations, foundations, business executives and private citizens who value America’s students and realize their importance to our country’s future. Established by National Write Your Congressman, SGAP is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization so contributions are tax deductible consistent with IRS regulations.

“Thank you for this program. It is very helpful for AP Government and Economics Honors and Standard levels. Once I get them hooked, the students ask when is the next one coming?”

“I give the America’s Legacy books to each of my AP Government students as a reward for taking and completing the class. It is something that students have come back years later showing me their copy explaining how helpful it was in their college classes.”

“One of our main goals at DISD is to build civic literacy among our students and build good citizens. Your program teaches them critical thinking, civil discourse, and other skills they will need after they graduate. SGAP is an extension of the social studies standards and provides great information.”
