The Judicial Branch is a fun and fact-filled exploration of the legislative branch of government. The judicial branch is considered along with the executive branch and the legislative branch to examine how each branch checks the others to create a balance of power. The program looks at the United States Constitution as the foundation of federal government and the concept of &́#x80;œWe the People&́#x80; as the ultimate authority. The system of checks and balances is examined in detail with various graphic and video examples provided. Additionally, we see how power is divided between state and federal governments. The creation of the legislative branch and the offices of Senator and Representative are examined, along with the powers and responsibilities that their offices entail. We also look at the requirements of their positions, how they are elected, the concept of a bicameral legislature, and the &́#x80;œgreat compromise.&́#x80; The law-making process is also considered in a step-by-step analysis. The program concludes with &́#x80;œThe Almost Painless Review,&́#x80; which offers an excellent synopsis of the entire program. Also, a Video Quiz is provided after the closing credits.
