  • 2. Essential Questions
    How have landmark Supreme Court decisions impacted the development of American society and politics?
    What systems of government are most popular?  Why?  And, how to they operate in relation to one another?
    How is the economy of the United States regulated?  Do certain agencies/commissions have more power than others? Which ones operate in the public and private sectors?  And, how does an understanding of economic systems deepen understanding of American history, politics, and jurisprudence? 
  • 3. Enduring Understandings
    American society is constructed around the decisions made by the top-most levels of government
    Society would look much different had certain decisions not been made or if made differently

    Although all unique, all governments are inherently similar, and each has its flaws

  • 6. Sabbatical Travel Log
    Created a fictional travel log.
    It is correspondence between three college professors on sabbatical and their experiences.

    E.g., Abington School District v. Schempp (1963).
  • 7. Intro to Econ Brochure
    Created a brochure that one would likely receive at an Intro to Economics conference.

    As well as different economic systems, such as command economy and market economy.

    Are certain economic policies related to certain types of governments?
