        Founding Principles | “Congress”

        Learn more about Congress and why it’s so important for a healthy democracy in this episode from Founding Principles: American Governance in Action, a civics video series produced by Bowdoin College. Through a study of foundational documents like the Constitution and completing a careful analysis of lawmaking (and lawmakers!) students learn why Congress is an integral part of American government and politics.

        Support materials include a breakdown of enduring understandings, an overview of content, a list of covered foundational documents and Supreme Court cases, ideas for extending learning, suggested classroom activities, related vocabulary words, and a student viewing guide with comprehension and critical thinking questions. For more resources from Founding Principles, check out the collection page.
