The State We’re In: Washington is an online and printed educational publication developed by the League of Women Voters of Washington Education Fund. Part of a larger Civic Education Project, this instructional resource establishes the link between public participation and effective government. Colorful graphs, historical photos and thought-provoking illustrations help to describe the basics of government, and the connection between a governing authority and culture and economy. Young readers and adults alike will gain a robust sense of past and present tribal governance and their relationship to state and local government in Washington. The content was designed for students in grades 7 through 12. Teachers find this publication useful as well for students enrolled in ESL, GED, BasicEd and Migrant/Bilingual programs. This publication is accompanied by a Teacher’s Curriculum Guide that is keyed to state learning standards and assists teachers with creative use of the materials.
