This week in US History, we continue...


“A More Perfect Union?” or The Constitution, Bill of Rights, and the Responsibilities of Citizenship (1787-present)

 Friday is a Funky Blue Day.

Lesson 5A

Securing the Blessings of Liberty: How is the U.S. Constitution organized to give the government power, but not too much power?


This week in class, students will:

  1. Analyze how the U.S. Constitution reflects the principles of limited government, republicanism, checks and balances, federalism, separation of powers, popular sovereignty, and individual rights.
  2. Summarize the purposes for and process of amending the U.S. Constitution.
  3. Continue to practice applying the Social Studies Skills found in TEK 8.29B
  4. Practice Units 5 Key Terms on Quizlet.

For additional context, I recommend the following review videos.
