Welcome to Honors Civics
Content for Week 5 (Monday, February 8th through Friday, February 12th)
We continue our look at the debates of the Constitutional Convention this week as we examine the Executive, and Judicial branches and their structures as determined by the founding fathers in 1787. We will look at the U.S. Bill of Rights as written by James Madison, and compare it to the original English Bill of Rights from 100 years earlier. To finish the week we will examin the variety of powers within the Constitution and how the concept of Federalism seperates those powers.
