Constitution Day is September 17th each year(except for 2017) when the day falls on a Sunday and will be celebrated on September 18th. This play would be a great addition to your lessons about the U.S. Constitution. Part of my Ms. Bie Ografe series of plays, this Reader's Theater Script is on the "Father of the Constitution", James Madson(1751-1836), and his sharing with students the history of the writing of the Constitution. Madison who would become the 4th President of the United States(1809-1817)), played a very important role in the forming of our US Constitution. In addition to being a delegate, he introduced the first additions to the Constitution(amendments) which came to be known as the Bill of Rights. With 13 audience questioners, a Did You Know Section, comprehension questions, a Teacher Page with extension activities, key and additional links, students will learn about the writing of our important government document, the Constitution. Other plays in the Ms. Bie Ografee’s Talk Show Series: Dr. Seuss, Charles Dickens, Johnny Appleseed, Albert, Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks, Bessie Coleman Sacagawea, George Washington Carver, Thomas Edison, Martin Luther King, Sequoia, Michelangelo, DaVinci, Tuskegee Airmen, Susan B.

Theory behind US Foreign Policy

Theory behind US Foreign Policy

This lesson is meant to help students understand the key theoretic concepts needed to understand US foreign policy. An activity is included to encourage students to critically evaluate the impact events in the realm of domestic politics have on foreign policy. The goal of this lesson is to go through the sometimes not engaging theoretic concepts that are required to understand foreign policy and this lesson can be used for students 16+, or highly motivated students in the 14-16 group. The lesson can easily be used for 45 minutes- 1 hour, depending on how long you want the activity to last. The expected learning outcomes are: Defining foreign policy; Identifying several theories that analyze foreign policy; Understanding the relationship between domestic and foreign policy; Understanding the term ''motivation gap''; Identifying key actors in creating American foreign policy; Identifying types of foreign policy goals.
