Before and Beyond the Constitution: What Should a President Do?

Collector: Ann V.

A three-lesson unit provides middle schoolers with the founding fathers' vision of what they saw as the role of the president and the executive branch of the government. Young scholars examine the Articles of Confederation, Alexander Hamilton's Federalist Papers, and the precedents George Washington established for which powers a president should have. The lessons point out the Articles of Confederation's weakness that lead to the drafting of the Constitution of the United States.
