Join Scott Casper, Dean of Arts, Humanities and Social Studies from the University of Maryland Baltimore County as he discusses some of the questions the founders considered when designing the 3 branches of government. In this video, Dean Casper discusses the shared and distinct powers of the three branches of government as well as some of the arguments against the structure of the constitution at the Philadelphia convention.
This video is part 6 of Lesson 11 (What Questions did the Framers Consider in Designing the 3 Branches of the National Government?) in the James Madison Legacy Project (JMLP) video series that follows the We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution high school curriculum. The video series is narrated by Greg Bernstein, Esq, consultant to the Center for Civic Education.
The JMLP video series was created with the purpose of providing cost-effective professional development programs that will enhance the knowledge and skills of teachers so that they can engage students in highly interactive civics instruction.
