A quick word about my teaching style so that you know what you are getting into. I have worked at several schools in the past where I did not have the ability to check out books to students because of short supply. Because of this, I created materials in which I wouldn't need my students to have a textbook 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. 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.
This bundle was created to be used in a U.S. Government/Honors class and includes the following:
- A 81 (164 mb) slide power point that covers the division of power between the federal and state/local government (federalism). The presentation includes many pictures and several video clips that shows who is responsible for what when it comes to responsibilities.
- 3 days of guided notes that go along with the presentation. Each day of notes has questions at the end which can be used for homework or a notebook check assignment. The notes are as follows:
Day 1 - The Division of Power
- Expressed, Implied, Concurrent and Inherent powers. I included examples of everything and video to illustrate the points.
Day 2 - The National Government and the 50 States
- Guarantees and protections, admission as states, and the different types of grants.
Day 3 - Interstate Relations
-Extradition, interstate compacts, full-faith and credit, and changes to marriage. I also included the Obergefell v. Hodges case from 2015 which ruled to legalize same-sex marriage nation wide.
Additional assignments in the bundle include:
- Warm-ups that can be given at the start of class.
- Federalism Review Chart - Covers the big cases and laws related to federalism. The 2nd page includes hypotheticals where students have to figure out which level of government is responsible for handling a problem.
- Understanding Federalism venn diagram - Students need to label federal, state, concurrent, or denied powers
- A quiz based on the presentation. Students will only need to study the notes to prepare. It consists of five multiple choice questions, five fill in the blank, five true/false, and one essay. The key is included at the end of the quiz.
That's everything! Thank you very much for considering this product. Cheers!
