Separation of Powers/Qualifications of Office

Time to work together in class to understand the separation of powers as well as the qualifications for office! The resource includes terms to review for pre-knowledge before beginning instruction. Following the review, pupils work on a study guide to answer questions relating to the Constitution and separation of powers, which leads to a helpful class discussion.
