Over the last few years, much discussion has been about how our democracy works. This course is not partisan or political in any way. Its aim is to go back to the basics of the why and how of government.
Don Purdum is a lover of American history. He’ll share a concise overview of how the founding fathers constructed the federal government and its intended relationship with the people and the states. You’ll learn about the Declaration of Independence, the US Constitution, the separation of powers between the three branches of government, federalism, how a bill becomes a law, the rights and duties of citizens, and so much more.
