Join teachers from across the Phoenix area and Arizona in studying the constitutional and legal origins of the power of the American president and Executive branch, and the evolution of that power over time. This thematic program will be useful to both American History and American Government teachers, as it will use documents spanning two centuries and a number of critical events and issues in American politics and law. Teachers will read documents from the Core American Documents volume The American Presidency and the Executive Branch, edited by Jeremy Bailey of the University of Houston, who will also serve as Discussion Leader for this Seminar. All participants will receive a physical copy of the new volume, as well as a certificate to account for continuing education time.
