Bringing Government Terms to Life
Bringing Government Terms to Life involves problem solving group work that will engage students and teach them the basic principles reflected in the Texas Constitution while communicating in written, oral and visual forms. Students will create and perform skits that illuminate how the Texas Constitution reflects the principles of limited government, checks and balances, federalism, separation of powers, popular sovereignty, and individual rights. A rubric will assess the effectiveness of the presentations.
