Students learn the primary responsibilities of the president and how those duties connect to the powers the Constitution grants to the executive branch. Students also learn about the types of issues the executive branch deals with and which federal agencies handle them. The materials include an anticipation activity about the president's job, a short and accessible reading, a variety of informal assessments, and a teacher's guide. Teachers will need to sign-up for a free account to download the materials. Students can also use the simple interactive game, Executive Command, from iCivics to review the material from the lesson.
