I have worked at several schools in the past where I did not have the ability to check out books to students because I only had enough for a class set. Because of this, I created materials in which I wouldn't need my students to have a textbook at home to be prepared for any tests or quizzes that they received. The power points that I created are quite extensive and include guided notes and video that go along with them. The students do not write down every word from the presentation and can focus on listening and learning the material from the lecture. If you are the type of teacher who does not like the idea of guided lecture then this bundle is not for you. Everything I have created stems off of that. Additional items that I have posted can be used for notebook check assignments, which I usually have whenever I get to the end of a unit or homework.
I created this bundle for an AP U.S. Government class which I have been teaching for the last 6 years. This bundle was created to match the course redesign which is going into effect for the 2018-2019 school year. This bundle includes the following resources:
- A 78 slide (230 mb) power point that covers the division of powers between the federal and state government, otherwise known as federalism. This goes over delegated, inherent, concurrent and reserved powers while also covering the major supreme court cases that the College Board has put an emphasis on for the course redesign that goes into effect for the 2018-2019 school year.
- An 8 page guided note packet that goes along with the presentation. This includes a summary and key vocabulary terms that students need to know at the end.
- Warm-ups and important information that can be given at the start of class.
- Research questions that sum up the Federalism unit. I give this as a homework assignment
- A Federalism chart that goes over the major court cases and laws that relate to the relationship between federal and state power.
- A Federalism examples handout which students can decide which part of government is responsible for a particular scenario
- A Federalism handout that asks students to label whether the federal or state government is responsible for a particular power
- A Federalism quiz - 5 multiple choice questions, 5 fill-in-the blank, 5 true false, and a short essay question (key included). I also included a make-up quiz for students who were absent that day.
Thank you very much for considering this product! Cheers!
