Framers of the Constitution

Framers of the Constitution
The Framers of the Constitution intended for the Legislative Branch to be the “first among equals,” affording the Congress many responsibilities and the authority to carry them out. However, modern politics is dominated by the executive branch. Write an essay which explores the powers of Congress. How does Congress exercise its checks and balances over the executive branch? Which chamber of Congress has more authority over the executive branch? Provide examples. How might partisanship help to diminish the exercise of congressional power over the presidency? In your estimation, is Congress still the “First Branch” or has the focus on the Executive reduced its capacity to serve as the voice of the people?

That is what my professor wrote under the topic.^

If any part of your responses are informed by outside sources (the internet, news articles for examples), you are obligated to provide a citation with the entire web address/link to where you found the information. Failure to do so will result in no credit awarded to the question.
Avoid using the dictionary, except for purposes of comparison. Use your textbook to define concepts. This is an easy way to show the reader that you are employing the textbook.

Whenever possible, provide examples or illustrations demonstrate your understanding of the core concepts and always explain your reasoning — even if the prompt does not specifically call for it.

Students may discuss the content of the exam with one another, but responses need to be personal and ‘own’ the material. Demonstrate that you alone are able to respond to the prompt. Collaboration that border on plagiarism or reflects actual plagiarism, intended or accidental, will receive a score of zero. Your best bet is to not work together.

Avoid directly quoting the textbook without using proper citation format (a Works Cited and “in-text citations” with page numbers). Paraphrase whenever possible to show me you understand the material. Directly quoting the textbook is the cardinal sin of any take-home exam in college, as it shows you don’t understand the material enough to explain it yourself. Include in-text pagination when paraphrasing (pg. 56). Some content from the textbook may be written close to word-for-word, for instance, a core concept or definition. The real key to short answer responses are using examples to illustrate the concepts and topics in the prompts.

These are instructions he also left for the citations and sources. Also, if it’s possible he prefers if the essay ia “Word Document”

Orchestra of the Century

Orchestra of the Century
Questions:

Reminder: Study your textbook listening guides as you listen to the music. This will assist you greatly in writing an informed answer.
1. List five of the more notable composers from this time period (1825-1912). (See text)

2. In what ways was the orchestra of the nineteenth(19th) century different from the eighteenth(18th) century?

3. What musical careers emerged during the Romantic period?

4. Listen to (#63)”Trio for Piano, Violin and Cello in D Minor” by Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel

5. Why is this considered “absolute” music?

6. Listen to (#64)”How Lovely is Thy Dwelling Place” by Johannes Brahms

7. Why is this considered “program” music?

8. Listen to (#65)”Prelude, Op. 28, No. 6 in B minor” by Frederick Chopin

9. This is “absolute” music. But do you think it could produce ‘images’ of one kind or another for the listener, depending on the listener’s mood? If so, what images come to your mind?

10. Listen to (#66) “An Sylvia” (“Who Is Sylvia”) by Franz Schubert [see English translation in text Listening Guide]

11. Is the poem about Sylvia accurately expressed in music? Why?

12. Listen to (#68)”Piano Concerto no. 2 in C Minor (1)(excerpt)” by Sergei Rachmaninoff

13. This composer is Russian, and it is based on a Russian Folk Song. What about the sound of this is different than the other examples? Describe as best you can.

14. For the Romeo and Juliet Overture, by another Russian composer, Piotr Il’ych Tchaikovsky, you may listen to (#67) in our textbook: “Romeo And Juliet (excerpt)”. However, you may wish to skip this and watch this video of a performance of the overture by an excellent, professional Russian orchestra. You will see the entire performance of one of the most popular compositions in all of nineteenth century orchestral music! I encourage you to use the guide as you watch the first part of the video.This is the State Symphony Orchestra of Tatarstan, Russia, (It is separated into two links according to You Tube policies) The entire performance is about 22 minutes. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t-hvNB0GBDE&feature=related (part 1) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wLTjdnZczB0&feature=related (part 2)

15. I am assuming we all know the story of Romeo and Juliet as told in William Shakespeare’s play. If not, please ‘Google’ the story. This Concert Overture is written to express musically the story line of the play; i.e. the feuding families, the two young lovers and the tragic ending. As with last week, I want your written essay response (125-150 words; or more) to this performance to come from your artistic, aesthetic and emotional feelings and observations..

Role of the U.S. Constitution

Role of the U.S. Constitution
One of the themes we’ve examined in this course is the role of the U.S. Constitution, and how it is interpreted by the courts, on American culture and society. Rights we take for granted, such as where we can eat, where we can live, and who we can marry were defined by judicial decisions interpreting this document.

One such case involved something as simple as buying a wedding cake. In 2012 a gay couple walked into a bakery in Lakewood, Colorado and tried to order a special cake to celebrate their marriage. The owner of the bakery, a devout Christian, refused to create the cake on the grounds such an act would violate his religious beliefs. He offered any items already made, but refused to create a cake specifically designed to celebrate the couples’ marriage.

Role of the U.S. Constitution

The gay couple sued the baker, and the case eventually wound up before the U.S. Supreme Court. The case is titled Masterpiece Bakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission (although it was the gay couple, David Mullins and Charles Craig, who sued for procedural reasons the defendant in the case is the Colorado Civil Rights Commission).

This final installment consists of five short essays, each worth 20 points. The goal of this exercise is to identify the Constitutional arguments and principles we examined throughout this session, and not to necessarily argue which side is “right.”

A PowerPoint presentation file has been posted in the Files section of Canvas, under “Week 8_The Supreme Court – Final Installment” as a source and guide for this assignment. Other documents have been included as well, including a transcript of the actual oral argument for this case before the Supreme Court. These other documents have been provided only if you wish to research this case further and are not necessary for this assignment (but feel free to refer to them in your responses below if you wish).

Role of the U.S. Constitution

Question One (20 points)

Using the information discussed during class and in the textbook regarding the American court system and administrative law, explain the process of how this case wound its way from the Civil Rights Commission, to the Colorado Court of Appeals, and finally to the United States Supreme Court.

Question Two (20 points)

Two fundamental constitutional rights found in the Bill of Rights form the basis of the arguments made by Masterpiece Cakeshop. Identify one of these rights, and discuss the arguments for and against whether this right was violated.

Question Three (20 points)

In Question 2 you were asked to identify one of the rights found in the Bill of Rights that serve as the basis for the arguments made by Masterpiece Cakeshop. For Question 3, identify the other right and discuss the arguments for and against whether this right was violated.

Question Four (20 points)

Discuss the claims made by the plaintiffs, Charlie Craig and David Mullins. What was the basis of their claims? While these claims were made under state law, what federal law discussed in class would be analogous to these claims?

Question Five (20 points)

What was the basis for the decision by the U. S. Supreme Court? Did it address the main issues of the case?

Submit a Word document, with each essay starting on a new page and clearly labeled as Question 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5. Depending on the question, your essay responses may be less than 1 page or up to 2 pages, double-spaced. As in all DeVry courses, APA style formatting should be used, and sources properly cited.”
