PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Whenever introducing historical or political content and context, relating it to current events in the lives of the students enhances their understanding and interest. This Word doc file is a guided discussion activity as an extension to the original "Separation of Powers Pretzel" activity. This extension activity requires researching the provisions of the U.S. Constitution, including the amending process, then comparing the Constitution's provisions to the recent legislating from judicial benches and legislating from the White House and how these dangerously erode the U.S. Constitution and our lives, liberty, property, and pursuit.
The current event scenarios encourage students to think like the Founders and Framers and not just from their self-interested, egocentric point of view, as well as understand that if any legislating from the bench or from the White House is unconstitutional then all legislating from the bench or White House is unconstitutional. And though in our egocentrism we may agree with some bench legislation and executive branch legislation, the time will come when a president or a judge will legislate in ways we personally disagree with; this is why legislating is the purview and power of Congress and of state legislatures which are more directly accountable to the Will of the People.
