Instructional Ideas
  • Divide the class into groups and have each group research the responsibilities, budget of their assigned cabinet, and whether the current Cabinet secretary  has been confirmed or is merely an acting secretary
Classroom Considerations
  • The clips, taken from longer videos, are incomplete and designed to stimulate discussion and further research
  • Material is somewhat dated
  • Includes questions for after-viewing discussions
  • Clip 1 ends mid-sentence
