Both whiz and bang
Review by Jerrie on 12/21/20 review stating Both whiz and bang
I would highly recommend this DVD to anyone of any age from 10 to 100. Though it will probably give adults little additional information the format will present the information they already have in an interesting and entertaining style. For children it is a goldmine of information that our 12 year old watches enthusiastically.

When I ordered this, I wasnt sure if it would fit with my Civics curriculum and also appeal to my students. I was so pleased that it does both. Mr. Sagal offers just enough explanation to provide clarity. His down-to-earth style (not to mention the motorcycle) is very engaging for my 8th graders! Thank you for taking the stuffiness out of learning the democratic process!
