Description

In which Craig Benzine teaches you about the US Governments Separation of powers and the system of checks and balances. In theory, the Legislative Branch, the Executive Branch, and the Judicial Brach are designed to keep each other in check, and to keep any branch from becoming too powerful. In reality, the system was designed to keep the president from becoming some kind of autocrat. For the most part, it has worked. Craig will call in the clones to explain which powers belong to which branches, and to reveal some secret perks that the Supreme Court justices enjoy.

Here is what is included in this 5-page download:

1. Note Taking Guide for Students: This is essentially a blank section to take notes in.

2. Teacher Notes: A place for the students to write a short summary of what they have watched.

3. Quiz Questions: 6 Quiz questions and answer key.

4. Discussion Questions: I have chosen 3 discussion questions from the video that could be discussed at the end of the episode.
