If you have a smartboard, students can complete the activity at their seat, individually or with partners, and then come to the smartboard to present the answer. If you have computers or a laptop for each student, students can complete the tutorial and add answers as they progress through the tutorial at their own pace. Either way, students can then use the worksheet as a study guide for a quiz or the End of Course Exam.
Power Point #1 – is entitled, How a Bill Becomes a Law and contains 14 editable slides.
This is a very short power point presentation that is easily modifiable to fit any presentation on how a law is created on the federal or state level.
Laws are created by Congress, the Legislative Branch, of both the federal and state governments. Congress consists of both the Senate and the House of Representatives, both chosen by citizen elections.
Before a law can be enacted it starts as a “bill” in either the federal or state houses of congress. Congress proposes legislation in the forms of “bills” drafted by a nonpartisan, professional staff. The presentation slides cover the following:
The Bill Committee
The Approval Process
If a Bill Fails
If a Bill Passes
Once Bills are Passed
The Final Approval
End of Presentation
This is one of many bundled presentations I have in my store under the heading …Tutorials.
