The semester is well under way. The excitement of the beginning of the year has worn off and the realities of classes and school have set in. As described and encouraged in class, you should be spending some time each afternoon/evening studying. As a result,  I suggest using this page to post questions. Use the "Comment" dialog box below to post questions. I will do my best to check daily to answer your questions. I also recommend that if you see a question you can answer that you go ahead and answer it for your classmates. If necessary I will assist in that too. When answering another person's question, click the small "Reply" link to create a discussion thread for that question.

1) In the box "Add a Comment", type your question.

2) Click "Add Comment" button when finished.

So, I don't really know whats going on... I don't have too many questions, but I was told this was homework.
Do we have to know exactly what the roles of the president are and do we have to match examples of them on the test?

This isn't a homework assignment, but I am glad you asked that question. There will be a section that asks you to match the roles with what the President does.

Is the "who am I" worksheet going to be on the test? Like will we be asked what the SBI do or what is the tax assessor do? Thanks!

I cannot find the "roles of the president" worksheet so I am guessing you took that up from us.... And if we don't have that how are we expected to study for that part of the test. Just a question!

I may have that worksheet, but hopefully you learned about the Roles of the President from 1) reading the text, 2) paying attention during any discussion about it, 3) completing the worksheet, 4) the movie "Dave" where you needed to observe and identify the roles of the President. You hopefully had enough practice by now. BUT, the handout can be found on the website: http://www.caggiasocialstudies.com/CEhandoutsQ1.html

If the Supreme Court deems an Act (i.e DOMA, PATRIOT, etc) unconstitutional, does Congress have to pass a law that outlaws whatever the Act or part of the act does that's unconstitutional? Or can it be enforced without the bill/law?

Matthew Caggia said

When the Supreme Court rules an act unconstitutional it is automatically, from that moment on, not allowed to be enforced. No additional act of Congress is necessary to undo the law that was declared unconstitutional. Good Question!

Hi, I have a question!

Is it Congress who must approve presidential appointees to head cabinet departments and other top government offices?

Matthew Caggia said

Only the Senate. Right now is a good time to be reviewing about Presidential appointees since there are a number of people resigning from his cabinet and Obama is announcing his replacements. I found this article about some of the positions and candidates. http://www.theepochtimes.com/n2/united-states/key-appointments-in-obamas-second-term-cabinet-334741.html

Also, Governor McCrory has a cabinet to appoint, every position is vacant since he taking as a new governor. On the state level, the NC Senate must approve gubernatorial appointments. Here is an article the discusses a good number of the Governor's appointees. http://www.mountainx.com/article/47470/McCrory-announces-6-top-cabinet-appointments.
