Our government materials were written and produced by professors associated with Utah State University and Strata Policy. Current and former high school teachers, along with Certell staff, also contribute to our content under the direction of Dr. Fred Fransen.

How our content is organized:

  • UNITS: Summarize the main ideas your class should cover in about a month’s time.
  • MODULES: Contain the topics you will cover in roughly one week (each unit contains 3 to 5 modules).
  • SECTIONS: These are the daily lessons (each module contains about 5 sections).

Where to get our content:

Everything you need to teach our content is located in our Teacher Edition eBooks. In addition to the reading, videos, and other multi-media, Teacher Edition eBooks include things like discussion questions, quizzes, exams, and classroom activities. Every student in your class can also get their own Student eBooks so they can read and interact with the multi-media.


We will never share your contact information and we do not have access to any student information.
