The American Presidency: The Executive Power Defined

Our first Saturday Webinar for the 21-22 school year, and the first in our five-episode Fall 2021 series about the American Presidency took place on 21 AUG 21. This first episode examined the “Executive Power” granted to the president in the Constitution, and what it means, how it’s been understood over the years, and how it has evolved.

This free webinar aired live on Saturday, 21 August 2021 at 11am Eastern Time, for 75 minutes. Access the archives of this episode on our YouTube channel and We The Teachers podcast.
