I am having difficulty completing the following essay questions.....
Explain the purpose of THE FEDERALIST PAPERS and their effect on American founding documents.
What are standing committees in Congress? What duties and functions do they perform? Include examples from the textbook in your answer.
Why did the Framers of the Constitution create the legislative branch with the bicameral structure?
Explain the concept of judicial activism and how this philosophy interprets the Constitution.
How is the United States government based upon John Locke's idea of a social contract? Cite evidence from the First Amendment to support your answer.
Google the following terms:
purpose of Federalist papers
judicial activism and Constitution
John Locke's social contract and the First amendment
US Congress Standing committees
essay questions require thinking, and to do that, it requires research and absorbing.
A key is in the second question: "use examples from your textbook." Do what bobpursley suggests, and also reread your textbook, which also explains these concepts. Reread with these specific questions in mind.
