  1. HI Bec, Thank you for your feedback! It is succinct and provides supporting details. How would you explain to how to interpret the Flow Chart to struggling students? It sounds like the color coding helped. But, if a flow chart showed up on a test or in the workplace they will not be color coded. Any tips? You did well today! 😀

  2. I found that learning about foreign and domestic policy was very interesting. It was cool to see that congress and the president both have a say in foreign affairs and foreign aid in order to limit the power of both the legislative and executive branch. Also, it was interesting to see how involved the legislative and executive branch are with each other, and how much the U.S. deals with foreign affairs

  3. The flow chart we completed today in class was in the end very helpful. At first I was confused with the color coding, but after I completed majority of the chart I began to understand the concept of the flow chart. Once I began to understand the concept it was really easy to use, and helped me learn how the checks and balances system of our government.
