It is recommended that the teacher read The Teaching of Civics, by Mabel Hill, Houghton Mifflin, 1914; and Introduction to American Government by Ogg and Ray, Century, 1922.
All students should read the Constitution of the United States (Appendix I) before studying Chapter IV of this text.
A study of local conditions will make the course more practical. For instance, students may be assigned papers on the following subjects concerning the county: history, natural resources, character of population, wealth, domestic animals, livestock products, production of crop wealth, organizations and cooperative enterprises, rural credits, markets, improved public highways, railway facilities, schools, public health and sanitation, churches and Sunday schools, and the farm home. See Syllabus of Home-County Club Studies, The University of North Carolina Record, No. 121, September, 1914. Extension Series No. 9.
Interest in the course will be greatly stimulated if a trip to Washington, to your State capital, to your county courthouse, to the city hall, or to any nearby public institution can be arranged.
Each student should be encouraged to read such books as: Uncle Sam's Modern Miracles, by W. A. Du Puy. Frederick A. Stokes,
