We will not discuss current politics or political opinions in this class, only the history and institutions of the US government. My own opinions will not be discussed at all in this class. Any questions from learners that raise political issues or discussions will be gently redirected as the discussion will only focus on history and facts regarding the 3 branches of government. Any questions from learners regarding the subject matter can be asked orally, or can be asked in the chat, but I will answer questions orally for the benefit of the entire class.
We will refer to the US Constitution and to US federal law in an age-appropriate manner.
