AP U.S. GOV'T
Justice in the Classroom | The Rule of Law | Border Crisis or Constitutional Crisis? is a lesson on the concept of the rule of law and how it is an integral part of our governing systems in America. Through this AP Government & Politics standards-based curriculum, high school students examine the expanded power of the presidency, checks and balances, and the rule of law. Working in groups, students interpret primary and secondary resources and formulate arguments illustrating the interplay of the rule of law on issues revolving around appropriations and border security. Students demonstrate their knowledge by writing an argumentative essay using documents from the required reading list.
