We have posted two more Civics in Real Life readings this week! The first looks at the National Institutes of Health. How is support for the general welfare reflected in the work of the National Institutes of Health?
The second reading explores Government Task Forces. How do these reflect Article II of the US Constitution?
We hope that you find this, and others in the series, useful!
As a reminder, our topics so far have addressed
The 2020 Census
The Defense Production Act
The First Amendment
Propaganda and Symbolism
The National Guard
The CARES Act
Federalism in Action
The Preamble in Action
the Common Good,
and Public Health and the Social Contract.
We hope that you will find these useful. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact us at anytime! And don’t forget, you can find the ‘Civics in Real Life’ resource on the Florida Joint Center for Citizenship website here. Be sure also to check out Civics360 for videos and readings that explore additional civics concepts and ideas within a more traditional framework!
