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.
I created this bundle for a U.S. Government or U.S. Government honors class and it includes the following:
- A 114 slide (474 mb) power point that goes the Executive branch of government. There are sections running for the office, similarities with past presidents, constitutional powers and responsibilities, the cabinet, and perks of the office.
- 3 days of guided notes that go along with the presentation. I have included questions at the end of each day of notes that you can have students answer for homework or a notebook check assignment. They include:
- Day 1 - Overview - History of the presidency, what presidents have in common, approval ratings, perks of the job, and line of succession.
- Day 2 - Powers of the President - Commander in Chief, executive orders, diplomatic powers, etc.
- Day 3 - Tools of the President - Treaties, recognition, state of the union, and war powers
In addition to the notes you will also get these other items:
- Warm-ups that can be given at the start of class.
- State of the Union Address form - I usually teach this section in January so I incorporate the State of the Union Address as a homework assignment.
- Cabinet and Bureaucratic Agencies handout - students research the 15 cabinet agencies and some of our most important bureaucratic agencies.
- The President Handout - covers qualifications and basic power s of the presidency.
- A Executive branch quiz - 5 multiple choice questions, 5 fill-in-the blank, 5 true false, and a short essay question (key included). I have also included a make-up quiz for students who were absent that day.
That's everything! Thank you very much for considering this product. Cheers!
