U.S. Constitutional Amendment Proposal Presentation

 

Constitutional amendments exist to correct a perceived problem with the existing document. In previous weeks, you examined the 27 amendments. For this assignment, each team must consider a possible proposed constitutional amendment. If the team wants to write about something other than the assigned topic, the team must obtain the facilitator’s approval by Week 2.

 

Each team is presented with two options for this assignment. One option is a rather noncontroversial issue for the general public, while the second issue is a rather controversial issue. Work with your Learning Team to select one of the options. No matter which option you choose, your presentation and speaker notes must be based on constitutional and legal arguments and NOT on personal opinion. Remember to respect your classmates’ points of view.

 

 

 

 

Team A:
 

 

 

o    Option 1: Should the Constitution be amended to limit members of Congress to 12 years of total service?

 

o    Option 2: Should the Constitution be amended to ban same-sex marriage?

 

 

 

 

Team B:
 

 

 

o    Option 1: Should the Constitution be amended to give voters the right to recall federal officials before  their terms expire?

 

o    Option 2: Should the Constitution be amended to protect the right to an abortion?

 

 

 

 

Team C:
 

 

 

o    Option 1: Should the Constitution be amended to give voters the power to enact or reject laws by ballot initiative, as a direct method in addition to the legislative authority of Congress?

 

o    Option 2: Should the Constitution be amended to legalize marijuana?

 

 

 

 

Team D:
 

 

 

o    Option 1: Should the Constitution be amended to give the president a line-item veto—instead of being required either to sign an entire bill—or veto the entire bill?

 

o    Option 2: Should the Constitution be amended to abolish the Electoral College and make direct voting for the president a reality?

 

 

 

 

Team E:
 

 

 

o    Option 1: Should the Constitution be amended to regulate the proportion of representatives so that each would represent no more than 50,000 citizens?

 

o    Option 2: Should the Constitution be amended to remove the birthright citizenship clause currently contained in the 14th Amendment?

 

Create a 12- to 15-slide presentation using Microsoft® PowerPoint® or a presentation software of your choice. Include the following:

 

 

 

 

Identify your team’s option for amending the Constitution.
 

 

Provide a brief history of the topic.
 

 

Discuss why your team thinks the topic needs to be a constitutional amendment.
 

 

 

Include introduction and conclusion slides.

 

 

 

 

For Local Campus students, these are 15- to 30-minute oral presentations accompanied by Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentations or a presentation software of your choice.
 

 

For Online and Directed-Study students, these are Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentations with notes or a presentation software of your choice.
