Class Experience

Students will be able to explain why the Framers believed a constitutional government was necessary in 1787.
Students will be able to identify the roles and responsibilities of each 3 branches of government. 
Students will be able to evaluate the effectiveness of "checks and balances" over the powers of each branch.
Students will be able to hypothesize if the current state of the U.S. Constitution and government  would meet with the Framers' approval. 
Parents have noticed that younger generations do not fully understand the structure of the United States government, and as a licensed History teacher who has conducted several lessons on the Framing of the U.S. Constitution, I want to ensure that the next generation of voters understand the importance of practicing their civic duty, not just by voting for president, but for district representatives, senators, and state officials. 
The teacher will supply suggested readings and web-resources after the end of class for further research and learning. 
All curriculum materials will be provided by the teacher 48 hours prior to the start of class. Students should download and review the readings before the class and be prepared to discuss the major issues and hurdles to the ratification of the Constitution in 1789. Additional links, presentation materials, games, and assessments will be provided by the teacher during class.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Since this is a one-time class, students will take a short quiz at the end to ensure all learning objectives have been met. We will also have an open discussion about the current state of the U.S. government and its 3 branches, encouraging higher-order thinking and analysis. 
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
