PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a 5 day lesson plan that walks the students through the 3 branches of government as laid out in the Constitution, explores Article II on Executive Power in Depth, has the students look over historical Executive orders and then use their knowledge of them and Article II to amend Article II declaring Executive Orders constitutional or not; then has the students edit the amendments, do a simple class vote on one, then apply that amendment to two scenarios to be looked at through the lens of of Judicial Review.

The series of lessons is designed to challenge students' thinking on Executive Power and whether or not Executive Orders are constitutional using the evidence provided. Also, by having different aspects of government "look" at the amendment, it gives students a surface understanding of how the three branches balance one another.

I think you will be amazed at the thought processes of your students when writing an amendment to a real issue, rather than just something that pertains to school rules or something similar.

A directions document is included that lays out what each day should consist of. If you are pressed for time, the first 3 days can be done alone, and even day 2 or day 3 could be done on their own as long as the students have a little background knowledge.

I hope this serves your students as well as it did mine.
