A civics course need not be expensive or tedious.  Justice Sandra Day O’Connor provides a great civics course so that we can understand how the United States is governed and know the rights and responsibilities of citizenship.

She also set up a website with free lesson plans.  These are, without a doubt, designed for classrooms, not homeschools, but you will get a general idea of the topics that ought to be included.  I intend to use this as a starting point and will post an update after we work out the kinks.

Most of Justice O’Connor’s required reading list is available free.  The two books that are not available in the public domain can be borrowed from the public library.
