The Executive Branch of the United States government is examined in this grades 10-12 Quinmester Program curriculum guide. Trends and issues surrounding the American presidency, its roles and functions, and their evolution through time are discussed. The approach emphasizes how the president is viewed by his many constituencies, thereby giving the student an insight into the many roles and stances the president must adopt to be an effective leader. Some broad goals of the course are to: 1) help students critically discuss the evolution of the president's constitutional powers; 2) analyze the functions of the executive branch; 3) generalize about the effect of a given president on the office of presidency; and, 4) analyze the relationships between the three branches of government. A broad goals, content outline, objectives and learning activities, and materials sections are included in the guide. (Author/OPH)
