The Executive Branch

profilevx6

 

The presidency plays a pivotal role as an institution in American politics.  Presidents play many roles, have tremendous powers at their disposals, and a large bureaucracy at their command.  Upon taking the oath of office as a new president, he faces many daunting duties.  The most difficult perhaps is living up to the expectations of the American people.  They expect the chief executive to ensure peace, security, and prosperity. 

Scenario

In this Part 3 of the Final Project, you will be creating Article 2 of your Constitution.  Article 2 should represent the executive branch of your new government. 

Please review Article 2 of the US Constitution (opens in a new window) as an example, model, or inspiration for creating your own Constitution. Other resources which may be helpful are listed below.

Instructions

***Before you begin, please review the scenario in 1.6 Final Project Review. ***
Please follow the procedures here to guide you. 

  1. Write Article 2 of your Constitution. It should contain the following information in at least five sections 
    • a description of the terms of office of the head of the executive branch 
    • a description of how the head of the executive branch should be selected 
    • a description of the qualifications of the head of the executive branch 
    • a description of how succession is carried out if the executive head becomes incapacitated 
    • a description of the powers of the head of the executive branch
