Please write this down;notes checks count as multiple class assignments. How Do You Amend Your Constitution?We did not get to see Mr. Deutschs totally rad flowchart on how to amend the Florida Constitution. Were going to jump off topic now to handle that. If you have page 5 from Friday, please get it out now. On the level articleWe will be reading using the fill in the blank method.

This is an active listening method that requires you to read aloud whenever the teacher pauses.

Lets try the first sentence as an example:Can you name the President of the United States?

You may also underline or highlight if it will help you. On the level active participation checkPlease use the T / F cards to indicate your answers silently. On the level active participation checkFederalism promotes a strong central government and gives little power to any other level of government.

(FALSEFederalism is the division of powers among a central government and smaller regional governments). On the level active participation checkThe founders of our country were against federalism and did not include it in the Constitution.

(FALSEEven though some people opposed federalism, it ultimately offered the best compromise between state and federal power). On the level active participation checkThe people who wrote the Constitution were influenced by their experiences as colonists and fighting the Revolutionary War.

(TRUEThere were many influences on the founding fathers, but their experiences as colonists were very important). On the level active participation checkThe Constitution of the United States established a central, federal government, with clearly outlined powers.

(TRUEThis is the main focus of the U.S. Constitutionthe establishment of the federal government). On the level active participation checkThe Constitution defines very specific powers for the states.

(FALSEthe Constitution gives all powers not enumerated to the federal government to the states, but does not clearly outline the powers given to the states). On the level active participation checkThe word delegate means to take from or to take away.

(FALSETo delegate means to assign). On the level active participation checkThe reason the federal government has inherent powers is so it can interact with other nations.

(TRUEThe Constitution was mainly concerned with how the federal government would handle domestic issues, so it enumerated very few diplomatic/foreign issues). On the level active participation checkPowers that are denied to the states are held by local governments.

(FALSEPowers that are denied to the states are held by no one or by the federal government alone). On the level active participation checkThe power to establish local governments is held by the states.

(TRUEState constitutions are responsible for enumerating powers held by local governments.) On the level active participation checkEach states constitution sets up local governments slightly differently.

(TRUEBecause states are free to create their own local governments, each state does this in a slightly different way.) Guided NotesPlease follow along while writing on the guided notes worksheet.
