Framing/Objectives for today
Today we are going to dive into the 3 branches of the government and look specifically at the President's powers during wartime. This is important to understand in order to evaluate past and present Presidential decisions during times of war and to ensure they're acting within the bounds of the Constitution!
We'll watch this Crash Course on US History about the Three Branches of Government. You should take notes in the table on page 5 (Unit 1, Part 2).
