The Executive Branch

Course Description

The Executive Branch

FEE has partnered with Strata Academic Programs to bring you The Executive Branch. This course aims to introduce students to the powers and responsibilities of the President of the United States. You'll learn about the Founders' motives behind creating the Executive Branch by reading the Federalist Papers, and about how the Presidents who followed them have interpreted their authority by reading and listening to speeches from the Executives themselves.

The workshop is a two hour, self-paced learning experience with a focus on the powers of the Executive Branch. It uses primary historical documents and videos to explain the Presidency in a way that is entertaining and intellectually stimulating. This online course works wonderfully as a stand alone educational experience for those who want to learn on their own and as a resource for social studies teachers.
