This is a PowerPoint based lecture on the foundations, principles, branches, and mechanics of the United States Government. The bullet points that are underlined correspond to the missing information in the student's note packet. (Student note packet is also a free download)
The PowerPoint has in-depth information on the Role of Congress included but this section is not in the students notes so may be omitted or added.
The lecture walks the students through the US Constitution, the three branches of government, checks and balances, separation of powers, how a bill becomes law and the role of the citizen.
