Students will use this mixture of sources (video, images, primary, secondary, readings, etc) to analyze the 1957 integration of Central High School and the Little Rock Nine as a case study for what an executive order is, and how the President uses executive orders to enforce law.
Included is the student presentation and a matching packet for them to answer the questions that correspond.
Students really found this interesting as many did not understand the legal questions involved. Use with Executive Branch and powers of the President.
Students can complete this cooperatively as a small group or in pairs.
23 slides and 5 page student packet
